Happy Anniversary My Love

Ok, so I'm one day late on this one. But when you're celebrating your 19th wedding anniversary the specific day doesn't really matter anymore!

Yesterday, Dec 11th, is actually the day we got married. We went up to wine country in CA to an old Inn and got married there in the library. It was very small. We asked my brother-in-law and my husband's uncle to be our witnesses. What a wonderful day it was. 


A week later we were off to New Zealand to see my sister, and then followed by 10 days in Fiji for the 'real' honeymoon. 

Spending time out on a little Island in the South Pacific; snorkeling, hiking and meeting the people of Fiji. Simply amazing. A place and time that will be with me forever.

Now, 19 years later I love him more than I ever realized possible. Strange how another person can become such a part of you --- body and soul. I can not imagine sharing the twists and turns of life with another person. We have 2 beautiful daughters and a wonderful life together.

While my girls are now 10 and 14, I thought I'd share some of my favorites. This one of my baby was when she was just a year old and we had only just moved back East. That year was a bit of a blur settling into our new life and moving across the country with little kids.

The second picture is of my girls a few years later. They are the best of friends. Ever since they were little, they've always hung out together, played together and honestly been inseparable. Nothing makes me smile more then to hear their giggles at night when they are off reading before bed. I get so sentimental this time of year, but life is good.
