Wool or a desk set?

So according to, since it's the Husband's and my seventh anniversary, I can expect wool, copper, or a desk set as an acceptable present.  I feel kinda cheated, because last year's gift was supposed to be candy.  Or iron.

Really? How did they come up with these lists?

Anyway, I thought I would spend a couple of days this week reflecting on the past seven years of marriage.  I promise to try not to get too mushy.  Today's just a photo collection of some of my favorite pictures from the big day.

Cousin T looking at the disaster that was our car
Our first dance to "Grow Old with You" from The Wedding Singer
Cutting our cake.  We had red velvet.
We had a really small wedding party, but it was sooo much better that way.
Our formal portrait a few weeks after the event.
Dad wishing me luck. :)
Our first kiss as man and wife.

That wasn't too mushy, huh?  Sometimes pictures do tell the best story, anyway.

Aw, I love SCAdian weddings. :-) Or Renn Faire. Or whichever flavor of re-enacting inspired your wedding.

You looked lovely!

Awww, thanks!

The H and I both wanted something unique, and we're both dorks of the Nth degree, so we latched onto the idea. It was kind of all DIY, and only later did I realize most SCA members would have had a stroke at the historical inaccuracies. :)

It was super fun, though, and I love the responses I get to the pictures. Everything from "That's soo cool!" to "That's (long pause) interesting."

Haha, SCA folks talk a lot more than they walk, for example: I'm pretty sure Camel Lights aren't period.

:) True! I guess I just spent too much time looking at SCA sites before & after the wedding. They tend to me a bit more demanding online than in real life, I think.
