Love is in the Air

Happy 4th of July! I have the can't-help-its and had to take a moment and post this ridiculously amazing All-American wedding.

I've never seen such a patriotic and beautifully done military wedding. I don't usually think of military weddings as being totally up my alley, but this one had me drooling over it!

Maybe it was the vintage inspired dresses and accessories...

...or the beautiful tablescape designed to the nines

Or maybe it was their dessert
complete with coke floats! My favorite!!

Whatever it was, I started thinking about all those cute couples who have a beautiful love story, but also have the reality of service to our country that keeps them separate so much of the time. I thought about my grandparents love story, how they got married over a weekend, and then didn't see each other for years. I think about friends that I have now, that are eagerly waiting their loved ones back in their arms. I am so thankful to have their service, and yet, I long for them to know the safety and comfort of their own homes. Their families and loved ones.

For all that have served before, served and gone on, or still serve today, thank you for what you do. For all the loved ones left behind, thank you for sharing them with the rest of us. So that we might be able to say,

"One nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all."

Go read this couple's super cute love story over at Green Wedding Shoes...
Love is definitely in the air!

  14. What you typed waѕ very lоgiсal.
    Вut, consider this, ωhat if you added a little contеnt?
    І am nοt suggestіng уour
    соntеnt isn't good., however what if you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean "Love is in the Air" is kinda plain. You might glance at Yahoo's
    front pаge and watch how they creatе
    post titles to grab vіewеrs to opеn the
    links. You mіght аdd a related vidеo or a related ρiсture oг twο to get peoplе еxсited about whаt you've got to say. In my opinion, it would bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
