Then we were off, although I almost forgot our tickets, and told Hubby the wrong hotel, which meant we went a different way than we normally would have. The rest was just a ball. I had a fabulous time, and can't wait for the next occasion to celebrate, I may or may not make the dress :)

""It is important for us to recognize that we have been blessed with the beauty of marriage and to promote its benefits for ourselves and our children, particularly in the black community," says Dee Dee Jackson, national president of Mocha Moms, Inc.

Black Marriage Day was started in 2002 by the Wedded Bliss Foundation, a national non-profit organization that serves families and community groups, promoting healthy relationships and healthy marriages. Last year, Black Marriage Day was celebrated in the black community in more than 250 cities across the U.S. Its goal is to highlight the benefits of marriage, pay tribute to successful marriages and promote marriage in the black community.
"We are thrilled to continue the tradition of honoring Black Marriage Day," says Jackson. "Black marriages are not only alive, but flourishing."
