Three years ago today, my mom helped me into my wedding dress and held the train up as we shuffled outside.
Three years ago today, I walked outside in full bridal attire, looked at my soon-to-be sister in law, and we both cried. (The tears certainly didn't end there.)

Three years ago today, my dad had to conceal his teary eyes behind tinted glasses when he whispered along with the lyrics as we danced.
"How could that beautiful woman with you be the same freckle-faced kid that I knew, the one that I read all those fairytales to and tucked into bed all those nights?"
"I prayed that she'd find you someday, but it's still hard to give her away, I loved her first."
Three years ago today, my sweetheart held me close and we danced together for the first time as husband and wife.
Three years ago today, I became a stepmom.
Three years ago today, I stopped living for myself.
Three years ago today, I married the love of my life and I'm still just so incredibly happy to call him mine.
Today is a good day, indeed!
