    My Stomping Grounds

    I Thought I Loved My Husband - We stood hand in hand in front of 350 guests and vowed richer, poorer, sickness, health, til death do us part. Through the vows, the celebration, the cutting of the cake, the hours of dancing, I didn’t think I could ever love him deeper than that moment.
