he promised to adore her
she promised to make him happy

we promised to be there for them
they promised to love us always

i promised to pass along great books
she promised to teach me to make sweet potato pie

she promised to be the best mommy possible to layla

jenna promised to always think of aunt amaris as a princess

so easy to make during
happy moments

let us each remember to
hold promises dear
to our hearts
good times
bad times
happy times
sad times

Beautiful, Julie. I wish you son and his bride a lifetime of happiness. My middle son married in May, the first of my three to do so. It was such a wonderful occasion!
