4 + many more

Four years ago my life changed forever. No longer could my last name be successfully pronounced every time. No longer would I be Ms. Wilson, but would forever be known as Mrs. Heather Wilson McGugan.

It has been the best four years of my life and although it seems that we have known each other forever, our wedding doesn't seem very far away. I am a very blessed woman and could not ask for a better husband, teammate, and best friend in Mr. McGoo.

One of my favorite things about our anniversary is that we reminisce a bit about our dating history and the last several years of our life. We like to look at where we came from and what has flourished in the marriage years under our belt. After looking over this last year, we can testify that God has done some mighty work within us as a couple and even through us as we've partnered with The Forsaken Children, our church, and have worked to show and submit to Christ as Lord of our life, not just an added part to our lives.

In addition to reminiscing, I often take the time to look back over our wedding day and the beautiful photos we have available from that day. It was a very special day for me and one that I will never forget.

I love you, Mr. McGoo. Happy Anniversary!

Sorry, couldn't help it - love this one!
We're not "normal", so why take "normal" photos with our wedding party?!
Some of the awesome people that stood by us that day!
One of my favorites - our first dance as hubby and wife!
Cake - he was so sweet to me and I got him good!
Mr. McGoo rockin it on the dance floor - yay!
Time to go

Ruth 1:16-17 -  "But Ruth replied, “Don’t urge me to leave you or to turn back from you. Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God. Where you die I will die, and there I will be buried. May the LORD deal with me, be it ever so severely, if even death separates you and me.”"

 PS - Happy St. Patrick's Day to all.

Our favors - pots of "gold"

Looking again at the post and the wonderful photos, I think I spotted something in the dance picture. I'm very familiar with the "white man's overbite", but now I learn that there's also the "white man's pucker-up". Congrats on another year together.

Oh Yeah, Daddy... in Mr. McGoo's life BH (before Heather), he apparently had a regular "dance" move called the SHIMMY, which was complete with a little movement added to the white man's pucker up!
