The post from yesterday. You know, my anniversary post, just a day late.

My post from yesterday experience technical difficulties. So, you're getting the original anniversary post a day late. A day late doesn't take away how much I love Mr. Potts. So some of our favorites. I promise in the next few days to recap some of the past year. But I won't go too overboard.

Mr. Potts began the day by making his Meme laugh. I try to keep that tradition alive with her.
My family arrived. I was so so excited to see them! My handsome brother.
At the alter, side by side. We were ready. The pastor begins to speak & Mr. Potts immediately says "I do!" The pastor laughed & joked that his job was done. :) The whole congregation laughed. Mr. Potts and I giggled.
We were so excited to get married, we could quit laughing & hugging & kissing.
I was so ready to see my mom. She didn't surprise me. She looked beautiful & somehow managed to hold it together. My momma was so happy for me.

One of our favorite images from the day. Love how she caught these.
A few pictures in the beautiful leaves - we couldn't pass them up.

On our trolley for a trolley ride around town before being delivered to our reception site.
It makes him smile to see pictures where I am so obviously in love with him.
We were able to take some pictures at a place we've always enjoyed - notice all the Charlotte signs! The pictures turned out well. What do you think?

One of our Faves! LOVE IT!!
We have so many wonderful pictures that these are only the tip of the iceberg. We had such a wonderful time the cake time was fun. He wasn't sure if he'd get just a swipe on his nose. He didn't.
My brother. I'm so glad he was able to share this with me as well as with Mr. Potts, My Mom & my sweet niece & nephew.
Two of our very best friends who live in NOLA came to celebrate with us - they told us they wouldn't miss it for the world.
My sweet sweet niece had such a fun time & watned to dance with Uncle Mr. Potts more, but alas, it was time to go home. I got my last hug.
The last hug led to tears. My poor sweet muchkin.

Happy Anniversary Mr. Potts! You've been beside me the whole way. Holding my hands, giving me a gentle push when I've needed it, reminding me of what I find important.

Laughing with me
Holding me when I've cried
Holding you when you've cried

I promise
I promise you me
I wouldn't want to know a life without you

I promise to be the girl in your guy nights if you need one.
I promise to plan fun trips for big & little reasons.
I promise to make sure you always know how much you are loved.

I promise to cook & baby you when you're sick.
I promise to help you stretch your hamstrings.
I promise to pick good books out for you.

I Adore You
I find you incredibly strong
I find you extremely compassionate
I adore you
I love you.

For You Mr. Potts.
