- Wedding: November 2011
Hello ladies! I have been reading/posting for awhile but I never formally introduced myself.
I am Robin. I have been married to my husband John for 15 years. We have 5 beautiful children together, and my 4 y/o twin niece/nephew live with us. It’s a VERY busy house, but boy are we happy!
When John and I got engaged in 1996 we planned a big wedding with 150+ guests. Two weeks into planning, my mother was diagnosed with cancer and given 12 months to live. I knew immediately that my priorities needed to shift to spending time with her and not worry about a wedding. Her biggest dream was to see us exchange vows before she died. We had a JP wedding in her living room so she was able to see us (she declined rapidly and could not travel to the courthouse). It was EXACTLY the wedding we needed at the time.
Fast forward 15 years…I am a wedding photographer. I have NO pictures of my wedding! One night while watching David Tuttera I got weepy and told DH how much I wished we could have had a fantastic wedding and lovely pictures. He stated simply that he was sorry we didn’t get that and he would be honored to make it up to me. I wear a 10 yr anniversary band regularly. So, he went into my jewelry box, and grabbed my original engagement ring. He got down on his knee and placed it on my finger and said “Robin, will you marry me again? Will you continue to have and hold me?”
So, here I am. I am planning to remarry to many I have loved and cherished for 15 years. When he annoys me, I tell him “I don’t know why I am marrying you again!” and he says “it’s for the money” LOL. My posts here may be confusing as I don’t hide the fact that I am an old married lady. But I do talk about having a wedding, honeymoon, etc.
So anyway, that’s my into. And I hope I can become part of this community 🙂
