Well, I've decided to start a PJ. Never having done a PJ...I figured...hey why not?! Cast of Characters: Bride-to-be (again): That would be me. Groom-to-be (again): That would be Steve. There won't be a "bridal" party since we are not really redoing our wedding (although I've been calling this VR thing our "rewedding"); but I will introduce our two fur-babies: Kaht & Muffy. Kaht is our 19-year-old cat that was actually a stray my folks rescued soon after I got married. Kaht was a kitten then and was being abused by the neighbors, so my mom fell in love with him and took him in. When they passed away - I inherited him and he has been my baby boy ever since. His name actually stands for King Alexander Hyper Troublemaker or Kaht for short. And yes, it is pronounced "cat". Muffy is our 6-year-old border collie mix who we rescued from the animal shelter. She's our baby girl who is such a little devil it's not even funny! But we love her anyway. How we met: Steve & I met on September 14, 1990 in a bar (of all places). He knew the night we met that we were going to be married. He told me after we had gotten engaged that as we were dancing to "Unchained Melody" he just knew and was wondering how he was going to tell his mom that he was getting married! Most of our dating was spent on the phone because he worked nights (and I worked days); we did a lot of talking and got to really know each other through our conversations. Our Original Engagement: Now this is a funny story (at least we think it is)! It was Thanksgiving 1990 and we had spent part of the day with his family and part of the day with my family. His friends asked us to come over too that day so on our way there, Steve said (as we were in the car at a stop light) "we're getting married." I said "yeah sure." Thinking to myself 'yeah I can see being married to him.' So we get to his friends' house and we're chatting and Steve says to his friend, "Michelle & I are getting married." And I kind of just stared at him. His friend said, "did you ask her yet?" Steve turns to me and said, "you said yes in the car!" and without really thinking I said, "well, yeah but I didn't realize that was the proposal!" we all laughed and toasted to our 'engagement'. About 3 weeks later (after he had spoken to my dad and got my dad's blessing) we purchased our rings. While at the jewelry store, Steve gets down on one knee and says, "Will you marry me?" And as everyone watched, I said, "yes of course." The whole store erupted in clapping (it was a Friday night and it was packed!) And that brings us to the Present: We've had some ups and downs and lots of health issues but we've managed to stay together through it all for nearly 20 years. We still feel lucky to have each other and love each other more every day. This past July Steve had to have his leg amputated (above the knee) due to a blood clot (and vascular disease). The past two years have been h*ll with him having to have vascular surgeries nearly every 90 days - I'm NOT kidding! Why do a Vow Renewal? It was Steve's idea (though he won't admit to it now - he says it was all my idea). He brought it up this past April on our anniversary and said "does Disney do vow renewals?" I told him I'm sure they did since they do weddings. And when he said find out - that was all I needed to know and find out (and still finding out) I am! What type of VR? We'll be at the WP on April 13, 2011 (which is our actual anniversary). We chose Noon (and got it too) since that is closest to our actual time of when we got married (which was 11:15). But this time we're not doing the big white dress thing - did that for our original wedding. This time he wants something casual (like Hawaiian shirts). I'm leaning towards a nice (long) ivory dress for me and an ivory Hawaiian shirt for him. Our colors? Red & White/Ivory. Red & White was our original colors. Ok I'll end for now and will look for some photos of our original wedding and will also add more regarding our VR. Thanks!
