Zach & Sophia | Lowell Showboat Wedding| Terri Gillis Photography

“If you knew how much this moment means to me
And how long I’ve waited for your touch
If you knew how happy you are making me
I’ve never thought I’d love anyone so much

It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way the back where I come from
It feels like home to me, it feels like home to me
It feels like I’m all the way back where I belong”

Sophia walked down the aisle in front of the Lowell Showboat to the song”Feels like Home”.  I love that song and have listened to it so many times since I first discovered it years ago. Sophias grandfather build the showboat many years ago and last winter Zach proposed to her right in front of it. This very spot is intrically woven into their love story.  This would beocme such a significant part of their story put into motion the minute the idea to build was put into motion.  I suspect they have and will visit this place many times throughout their lives.  It will forever be a reminder of this day, they will never again see it or just pass by it without recalling all sort of details of this beautiful day.

Tomorrow Mr. Gillis and I will celebrate 21 years of wedded bliss!   I’ve learned  that my home is so much more than my address, dwelling place or habitat.  It’s my refuge, the place I’m drawn to in the center of my heart, its the place where I’m secure and happy.  It’s comfortable, it’s settling, it’s the place to breathe and rest; it has nothing to do with an address and everything to do with my husband.  As we journey through life there are jobs to be done, bills to pay, kids to feed,  laundry, laundry and more laundry; honestly some days I mentally quit, I check out and start considering how I will get away….I’m not kidding!! It’s tough!!   But then the other day were were out shopping; I went my way he went his and we were split up for a little longer than I had planned.  I started to look for him only to see him accross the store;  smiling as he came toward me.  I notice this feeling of immediately being at ease just because he was there.  21 years and he is still the center of my heart, my dwelling place is with my hand inside of his and when I’m with him even being at Kohl’s can feel like home.

Congratulations to Zach & Sophia,  I hope your celebration of your wedding lasts the rest of your life!  XO!!
