Twelve years ago yesterday, I sat inside of a car outside of a courthouse in Arkansas with my best friend. As we held hands, we asked God to bless our union and to be the center of our marriage and then we went inside and pledged our love to one another before God and witnesses that we did not even know. It wasn't fancy. It happened beside some filing cabinets. There wasn't a special dress or flowers or guests. We don't even have pictures.....but it was the best day and best decision of my life.
