Honeymoon Dress

Jordan bought me this dress while we were on our honeymoon in Mexico. There were all kinds of pretty dresses hanging along the street shops and I wanted to find the perfect one. We walked up and down trying to find the right one at the right price. We finally found this one and tried to haggle the price lower but the guy wouldn't budge. We gave in and bought it for more than we wanted.

It has taken me over three years to finally wear this dress. It has been sitting pretty in the back of every closet we have had since our honeymoon. Don't ask me why it has taken me so long to wear it. Mostly I've felt like I couldn't pull it off. But every time I see it, it reminds me of the very beginnings of our marriage and how much Jordan wanted to buy me a dress that I liked. Which, by the way, makes me feel horrible for taking so long to wear it.

So here is to getting over insecurities and making my husband smile.
