9 years ago TODAY, I married the man of my dreams. The second I met Matt in October of 1998 I knew I would marry him, call it “intuition.” I just loved him instantly. I was one of those girls who started dreaming of their wedding when I was a very little girl. I wanted that big white dress. I wanted beautiful music. I wanted delicious food. I wanted lots and lots of dancing. And I wanted a beautiful sunny day. Well… 9 years ago I got all of that… but what I got in addition to that was my best friend.
