A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person*

I was a girl when I married. A fresh-faced, twenty-two year old bride.



I knew nothing of life, really, but I was in love.



A quarter of a century later I am still in love.



And suck it people, I can still fit in the dress!

Wow--I'm pretty sure I'll rock a 25-year marriage (2 years left), but I seriously doubt I'll ever fit into the dress again.

Congrats on both accounts!

Congratulations on the anniversary AND still fitting into the dress!

We have six years until our 25th and at this point, only my veil still fits.

DAY-MN! You still rock the dress!
Congratulations and cheers to you and your man! I love your post title, too. So true.

Congratulations!
My dress looked a lot like yours, but I definately don't fit into it today!

You are gorgeous, both then and now. Congratulations to you and the Saint, you still look very happy. :)

I can still fit into my wedding dress too! Of course, that's because I am the same size now as I was then, and both of those sizes are...um...big.

Oh.my.Word. That dress is gorgeous. There is something very sweet in stepping back into that dress as you consider the marriage that came out of the wedding.
