Thank you all...

....for the kind words and best wishes. They are all much appreciated. :-)

The ceremony was beautiful, and with no drama, just the way we wanted it to be. We decided early on that we wanted it to be that way, at the park in Columbus where we spent our first days together -- Beason's Park on the Colorado River, just east of town on Highway 90. Everything went just as it should have -- we met the JP there just before 1300. Sabra told me later that if we'd gone down to central casting and asked for someone to play a Texas country preacher, the JP who married us would've been exactly what they'd have given us. We held hands at the edge of the Colorado, as we vowed to love one another forever, I kissed her and we were man and wife. We stopped in Katy on the way back and had lunch at this little barbecue restaurant and got back to Orange about 1730 or so. I changed my relationship status on Facebook and by the time we got back it was flooded with surprised comments, and after I changed it again more of them came. We changed our statuses to engaged when we left for Columbus, and to married when we got back. It was a surprise to everyone, but hey, isn't that part of the fun of eloping?
