Vegas was great! Since it was my first trip I was like a kid in a candy store….LITERALLY. The M&M store was fabulous. That’s the first thing that comes to mind because I’m sitting here right now eating some as a morning snack. If my husband knew that he’d shake his head at me.
I don’t know where to start….the strip was just WOW. The hotels were just WOW. The food was just WOW. The entertainment was just WOW. My husband is………more than WOW.
See….that’s the second time I mentioned MY HUSBAND. Let me tell you about my birthday. He was late getting in because of airport issues and we were both tired. So the first thing we did was crank up the spa tub in our suite to get a little relaxation. Somehow he maneuvered us into a conversation about engagement rings. There I was trying to honestly convey to him that ring size didn’t matter in the least to me. A small token of his love would speak volumes to my heart. This stubborn man responded by asking what if HE wanted to get the biggest (and still stylish) ring that he could.
Y’all know I’m a romantic right…..
I leaned into him and simply said that a ring didn’t matter because all I needed was him. He took both of my hands in his and said…..
That’s good to know because I already have the ring.
And out of the tub bubbles he slipped a 1 karat round diamond in a white gold setting on my finger. I can tell you what it looks like NOW but at that moment the ring was a blur. The tears started and then the official proposal.
Honestly….I couldn’t imagine leaving Vegas as anything other than his wife. So on Christmas Eve we made our way to the courthouse to get a license and after lunch we were warmly welcomed into the Lily of the Valley Las Vegas Wedding Chapel where we exchanged vows and became husband and wife. As a professional event designer and coordinator, I can officially say that this was the most beautiful ceremony I’ve ever seen in my entire life.
There’s so much more I want to share but right now I’m just enjoying it all myself….the memories, the pictures, and the love of my husband….my yobo.
PS….some of you are looking at this photo and asking yourselves….”wait…didn’t I see this somewhere already? Is she? Is he? Did they?”
The answer is YES!
