This was our wedding song. Sarah and I took ballroom dance classes and we choreographed a dance to this song using the moves that we knew. And that is one of the things people still talk about our wedding. It was a fun and feisty dance.
But it was also sneaky because it starts out slow (we heard someone comment “swaying” as the song started out.
And then the horns kick in and we pulled out all of our best moves. It was a huge hit.
We did not video our wedding, and our one regret is that we kept our big dance a secret so no one filmed it. It now just lives on in memory.
[MARRIED: January 17, 2004] Paul Debraski & Sarah Cornish
Ten years ago today Sarah and I were married.
It was a glorious day, a little cold (but who could feel it?). We had a brief but wonderful ceremony and then an amazing party afterwards full of friends and relatives. The food was great, the company was great, even the cake was great (ask anyone who was there). It even snowed that night.
I drew my own cover (full of personal secrets), made an inside cover with our photos and even put some blurbs on the back. And then I glued the pages together and cut out an opening for the engagement ring. (There’s also a page of personal stuff that you aren’t allowed to see).
And here it is ten years later. It’s hard to imagine how much has changed in ten year. We’ve got two wonderful kids, a bunch of chickens, other small animals and jobs that are completely different than they were a decade ago.
Happy anniversary, my love, and here’s to ten more.
