march the twenty-eighth, nineteen ninety-two.

today. twenty years ago. my mom donned her lace and puffed sleeves and my dad tied his bow tie and tucked in his shirt and they said i do. but most importantly, they didn't save me any cake. but i wasn't born. so i guess i don't have much control over that.

ever since i knew what a wedding was, i wanted to have one. i didn't really know anything about love, but i knew that God was going to pick the guy out and we were going to walk down the aisle and kiss {then gross}, and dance to cinderella music and eat cake. i remember watching my parent's old wedding vhs and thinking, i want one of those. why wasn't i there? i want my own wedding.

i remember mommy and daddy kissing all the time. it was gross, and it pretty much still is. i'd run between them and push them apart and then they'd kiss me. which was better. i remember them renewing their vows just so i would get some cake. that was fun, because i got to be the flower girl mommy never had. and the cake was delicious.

now, it's been twenty years. when the bluebonnets start to come out, it's the sign that one more year is almost here. i've been here for fifteen of those, and joy's been here for six. i'm pretty glad my parents got married, because if they hadn't, i wouldn't be here. oh right, joy wouldn't be here too. but anyway.
