10 Years Ago Today....


10 years ago today I awoke feeling at peace
I was calm cool and collected

I grabbed a coffee and headed to the deck
it was cloudy ~ those dark ominous clouds
the ones that spell pending doom
or at least rain

I was not worried
nope ~ maybe I should have been considering
that we were having an outdoor wedding
that evening

yes ~ 10 years today I married
the one that makes my heart happy


all you need to do is look at those smiles
"we did it!!"

we had a small wedding party
Trevor's best friend Gordie and my best girl Gina
stood up with us



a shot with our parents


and me with the girls
all you have to do is look at the kids
to see how the time has flown by


~ my favorite shot ~

we have been through so much together
good times and bad
in sickness and in health

we have had our times ~ it is a work in progress
and throughout it all we still love each other
and are still in love

isn't that what it all boils down to??

So we were not suppose to buy each other gifts
because we went away in April ~ yeah ~ remember Cuba??

and since we will be out tonight ~ going to another concert
are we not just the couple on the go this week

we exchanged gifts last night
yes ~ the gifts we were not suppose to buy

so he bought me another band that matches my set
pictures will come of that
and I bought him an iPad

go big or stay home....


we will be going out to dinner and toasting each other
and as he said to me last night
as he slipped the new band on my finger

"For Life"

xo  love you baby  xo

Happy, happy 10th anniversary to both of you.
You are obviously a match made in heaven and are made for each other.
Wonderful photographs which hold precious memories, I'm sure.
Have a lovely day and here's to the next 10 years.
