My 2009 In A Poem

The Corporal flew in on the 4th of July.
He surprised her; made her cry.
More tears of joy were on the way,
They went for a walk on that wonderful day.

Up on Brown Hill....that was the place,
With ring in his pocket; smile on his face,
He popped the question...of course she said "yes."
She was overwhelmed with happiness.

She wanted to broadcast the news; put an ad in the paper
Oh this was a moment she wanted to savor.
On the 5th of July the Corporal flew out
His mission accomplished -- He had no doubt.

The planning began for tying the knot.
They picked a day, and they chose a spot.
She had his heart, she now has his name,
Unlike the Marines...neither is subject to change.

They made a vow, a pact, you could say,
Together they are and together they'll stay.

My mom wrote this on our wedding announcement type thing...with a picture of us on the flip side. They were part of each table setting at my bridal shower (which ended up being after we got married, lol). It's 2009 in a nut shell for me though...I honestly can't remember too much before July 4th but I know that'll be a day I'll remember for a lifetime. :)

I didn't post the poem anywhere and I didn't let Brians family tell him about it because I knew he'd love it and I wanted to send it to him while he was deployed. As I predicted he loved it. He's extremely sentimental and sometimes I find it rather amusing. When he called he asked me if I had another copy of it because his buddy put it in a box and bent the corner! Hah, oh my! How dare he!
I love my husband so much and am ready for it be June! :)

Happy New Years girls!
It's finally 2010, time is moving!
