6 Years Ago ...

Today is my anniversary folks, and as always, it feels kind of weird. 6 years ago, after living in sin for 10 years, my hubby and I, along with 30 close friends and family, were celebrating our love tropical style. We were married in a garden grove just off the beach and then sauntered down the beach onto a catamaran and floated around the bay to do our speeches, toasts, dancing and celebratory drinking.

Those moments feel just like yesterday as I close my eyes and relive those memories, yet somehow, 6 years just doesn't seem like enough. I want more and will have more. We want to make it to 50 years, to live in our love and share it with all that surround us. We are proud of our love and we are strong in our love for one another. We marvel at the past 6 years, and giggle with wonderment of the past 16 (come November) and the adventures we have experienced with each other.

We tear up as we embrace our children and melt within each other knowing that our love created these perfect, precious little beings. We dream of our future and what it holds for us, specifically what challenges we will face and the adventures we will go on. We take deep breaths as we face our present challenges and find the lesson learned in life for the years that have passed. It is our understanding of each other and bringing that balance to each other that keeps us pushing on with determination, excitement and curiosity.

Love can be an amazing thing, and I am truly humbled to have found the man to share it with. I am incredibly blessed and my life has been enriched because of him. Words can not do justice how much I love him, respect him and enjoy being with him. Sigh .... I am so in love and I am so lucky to be so.

I am off to relive my wedding with my children through a video and picture albums .....

Hey I'll toast on your coming +50 years together!

And please stop saying you lived in sin for 10 years. You always do so and it sounds so silly. Or is that my English being a barrier?
