AUGUST 27, 1994
I laughed for almost 10 minutes when Scott proposed with champagne and strawberries. Poor Scott didn't know what to think. My laughing was from nerves! I've been single so long and afraid of commitment, but yet I knew I wanted to spend my life with Scott. FINALLY, after I got control of myself, I said "yes."
At the wedding ceremony, held in our back yard, I cried and cried! The mayor officiating the ceremony actually had to stop and ask if I was ok! I was so scared. Not so much of the commitment, but knowing that I am taking Scott's heart into my hands and I could break it if this marriage didn't work out. I was overwhelmed by my responsibility for his precious "heart". We finally got through the I do's and it's been a wonderful marriage ever since. Not very many fights at all.
We mostly have the same views of most subjects, like to do the same things, etc. Below is a congratulations I received from my Dad this morning.
Hi Deb & Scott,
Eighteen years! Yes, eighteen years Scott has endured Deb's strange moods. where we remember only maybe 5 or 6 years.
Eighteen years Deb has enjoyed Scott's wonderful traits, his love & affection, skills, self control, etc, etc.
Yes, guys, you have been married for eighteen wonderful years-congratulations!
The dress was actually like a pants suit. It looked like a dress but was actually two billowy legs, so I could ride the motorcycle.
Back row left to right:
Beverly, Maid of Honor - Debbie, Bride - Scott, Groom
Front row left to right:
Bobby (nephew), ring bearer - Amanda (niece), flower girl - Rose (niece), bridesmaid
Yep, typical teenager...Rose was about 14 when she was a bridesmaid. Looks happy to be there, huh?
I made (sewed) all the girls' outfits. They were also one piece pants suits/jumpsuits.
I LOVE YOU SCOTT!
