If y’all can believe it, this Sunday marks Michael’s and my 12-year anniversary. I could’ve sworn we just got married last year, but that’s probably because we still haven’t left that honeymoon phase yet. I am just so over-the-moon about that man that I think someone may have to give me a big ol’ slap to get the silly grin off my face that I get when I look at him. But I guess that’s just the way it goes when you’re married to your soul mate.
I still look back on my wedding day just as giddy as a schoolgirl. I don’t think my feet were ever on the floor—I was just floatin’ from sheer happiness. Everything that day was perfect, from the location and flowers to the guests and food.
I had to get a little help (OK, more like a lot of help) with the wedding planning, but I couldn’t just up and let someone else take hold of my menu for the big day. How people would talk if Paula Deen’s wedding didn’t have lots of good Southern food! No, I had to have the menu my way, and I’m glad I did because food can really make a special day even grander.
In honor of that special day and my very special husband, I’m sharin’ my wedding menu with y’all again, just in case you need a little reminder—after all, it was 12 years ago!
