Our Anniversary, June 26, 1999

Tomorrow is our wedding anniversary. I have prepared this post for that occasion. We have just returned from our stay in Mexico and what a dream vacay that was!!! The bub was in heaven and what an absolute JOY to be in the water, in the sand, in the pool with my family. There is lots of material for a post about this vacation on another day (including extremely inappropriate and outrageous behavior by not just the two year old). For now, a quick walk down memory lane, in pictures.


1997 - The photo that is still at my bedside. In this photo - still giddy, still new, still nervous.


1998 - Discovering each other, discovering ourselves, traveling, exploring, every day new.


1999 - Taking the plunge and never looking back.


2000 - Experiencing family and traditions together, creating a life together.


2001 - Just having fun, Mexico style!


2002 - His fifteen year reunion (What?! Fifteen years?! Oh, yeah, and better than ever!)


2003 - Discovering new loves together in our travels. Wine.


2004 - A year of transitions and moving ahead, moving toward a new horizon. Obviously, wherever we go we know how to make an entrance.


2005 - Getting comfy in Colorado. Cheers to accepting adventure into our lives.


2006 - A vacation we both remember as one of the best! Biking tours and drinking wine. What could be better?!


2007 - I am pregnant in Mexico in this picture and I DON'T EVEN KNOW IT. Let the real adventure begin!


2008 - Our first Christmas in our own family home. Love surrounds us.


2009 - Remember - we wanted to hang a banner at the first birthday party that said, "WE DID IT! WE MADE IT THROUGH THE FIRST YEAR!"


2010 - Thirteen years together. Eleven years married. A lifetime to go.
