6 Years Ago Today...

Michael and I were getting married...
For those of you who don't know, Michael and I dated on and off for about 7 years before we had our "big day". We dated on and off all through Jr. High and High School and finally got "back together" for the last time in 2000.

After a long bout of dating each other (and a few other people that we won't mention...lol) it was FINALLY our big day. We were so excited...I remember thinking I was the luckiest girl in the world. I was marrying a man that I knew loved me 100% and a man who I couldn't imagine living without--a man that loved me unconditionally and always knows how to make me smile.This picture is of us at our reception immediately after the ceremony. We couldn't wait to see and talk to all of our family and friends, some who traveled a very long way to be with us on our special day. July 20, 2002 has by far been the happiest day of my life so far.

This is us today...We've both changed quite a bit in 6 years (he's got a little less hair and I've got a little more gray in mine...lol), but he is still the absolute love of my life and I am more thankful for him every day. Don't get me wrong, Michael and I have had our ups and downs just like every other married couple, but we are stronger as a couple now than we have ever been and I can't imagine my life without him.
Today has been a wonderful day of just spending time with each other. So, Michael, HAPPY ANNIVERSARY and thank you for being my best friend! Here's to many more years together! I love you!

I remember that day. Uncle Jason and I were in the balcony filming the wedding and making faces at you and Michael. Has it actually been 6 years ago? Trust me when I say time flies. We will be married 18 years in December.

Congratulations on #6!

Karen, I seem to remember the two of you filming...and making faces! And you are right, time does fly!

Happy Anniversary. Isn't it amazing how fast time flies? DH and I will celebrate our 10th in October and I can't believe it. Well, not that I didn't think we'd make it, but it just sounds like such a long time! Congrats and best wishes for many more happy years together!!
