Three years ago today I married The Boy…

and everyone came- from Texas, from Spain, from Cali, from GR, from Pitt, from Montana, from Cleveland, from DC…

and it was a beautiful day.

I remember loving LOVING the way the groomsmen and bridesmaids looked.

I remember trying so hard to listen to my father talk to me as we walked down the aisle that I actually missed the walk down the aisle.

I remember looking around and realizing all these people had come to see us… to wish us well and to pray for us and to fight for us and to laugh with us.

I remember thinking, “I don’t have to go home tonight.” Sleepovers all the time!

I remember Mr. Kirkley pronouncing us Mr. and Mrs. KATIE…uh, Curt Mulder.

Our daughter looks like you, Curt… you and my dad… the two greatest men I know.

You are a serious Greg to my Dharma.

You let me have chickens.

You built me a house out on a dirt road and you calmed me down.

It’s a beautiful day.

    Happy A-Day…oh, how I wish I’d known you then! I would surely have been there to fight and laugh with you…of course, I might have only been there as the creepy gatecrasher, but I would have made it happen nonetheless. Determined, I am.

    Sleepovers, heh…(are you blushing?)

    We need to do sushi again. Soon.

    Oh good night, it’s my little cousin Amers! Of course, Illinois! How could I forget? I always put y’all in PA. Cheers to St. Louis and Freeburg. Mmmmhmmm.

    Are you telling me you’re engaged? Is that what you’re saying? Are you saying you need a ridiculously funny flower girl to crawl down the aisle growling carrying a basket of flowers in her teeth- ’cause I got one of those.

    Details, please.
