Did you write your own vows when you got married? Should we? If you did, what part of your customized vows were you most happy with?

and I are getting married on December 29! We've been making all the necessary wedding preparations and have been lucky enough to find a family friend, a pastor, who will officiate. He's been doing pre-marriage counseling with us and suggested we write our own vows. Problem is, we both really like the boilerplate "forsaking all others ... til death do us part" phrasing of a standard vow.
We thought maybe we could take the standard vows then tack a few phrases of our own onto the end. This is a Christian ceremony, if it matters, and both of us are the stay-together-no-matter-what variety. So, for the married and non-married mefites alike, what sort of custom vows would you have, if this was your wedding?
