11 Years of A Whole New World

Eleven years ago tonight -- it was on a Friday that year, too -- we went to church. Then we had a nice pasta dinner with family and friends. The evening concluded with Jon Vollrath, Shawn Ethridge, Brad Aumann, and company joining me in serenading Kristi. If you haven't guessed, it was the night of our wedding rehearsal.

The serenade was especially fitting: Disney love songs. Among the top hits that night were "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" from The Lion King, "A Whole New World" from Aladdin, "Kiss the Girl" from The L
ittle Mermaid, and "Something There" from Beauty and the Beast. What fun! (We ended up making that a tradition in our group of friends, serenading Shawn's and Jon's future brides.)

Happy anniversary of the rehearsal, to my favorite Disney Princess!
