Crash Into Me...Baby

Four years ago....

my Baby crashed into me.

Or maybe I crashed into him.

And 5 1/2 months later we were married.

It was a cold and rainy day, much like today.

 As the girls were dancing and playing,
our poor guests were shivering outside.

Macy was 5

and little Grace was just 2 years old.

My best friend, Tina, of 25 years
was about to become my sister-in-law.

Dad and Mom.

Laughin' it up with my Dad.

Still Daddy's little girl.

I couldn't wait see my Man

as he patiently waited for me in the freezing cold.

Almost there...


Right where I want to be.

Always my favorite shot of any Bride and Groom,
after the I Do's, it's official.
We did it!
We are Husband and Wife.

My girls have a Daddy again.
That loves them with ALL his heart.

Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Wayne Duffy.

Now I've got my ball,
I've got my chain,
tied to me tight,
tie me up again.

Sweet like candy to my soul,
Sweet you rock
and sweet you roll.
Lost for you, I'm so lost for you.

You come crash into me,
and I come into you.
I come into you,
in a boys dream.

Now this is unconditional love of family.
Gary's Mom and Sister,
so happy for me and with me.

Off we go under the sparkles!

I certainly did not think
after what I had been through,
that I could be so happy again.

It was actually me
that crashed into him.
Yes, I made the first move.

I was a young widow that thought
I was perfectly fine on my own
with my 2 girls.

Then the Lord opened my eyes
to someone I'd known for over 25 years.
Someone he had saved for me, just me and my girls.

He's always had a dream of the marriage and family he wanted.
But he didn't think he'd ever have it.
He had just made an agreement with God that
he would be happy staying single rather than "settle".

That's when I crashed into him.

Hence, our song...

When you come crash into me, baby
And I come into you
In a boys dream
In a boys dream

Happy 4th Anniversary Baby!

  13. Happy belated anniversary to you and your dh. I just came across your blog this evening for the first time. What a beautiful story this is. My husband and I just celebrated our 17th anniversary on the 18th of Dec., and although like Kate, I was not a widow either, but nonetheless have a fairytale love too. Be happy and may you enjoy a lifetime full of love.

  14. First of all, you were a beautiful bride. Second of all, what a great story. Isn't it wonderful how our Father takes such great care of us and provides who and what we need?
