11 Years Ago Tonight

... I was having my fingernails and toenails painted bright red by my lifelong friend and maid of honor, Angie, in anticipation of my wedding the very next morning! That was certainly a 4th of July I will never forget. (:

And tonight I enjoyed a wonderful evening with my husband, reminiscing about that day 11 years ago and remembering all that God has brought us through and done in our lives since then.

I think it is the first time I have gone to three different restaurants in one night. One for coffee, one for dinner, and one for dessert (although the first and last were pick up only!) What a fun, relaxing, celebratory evening and I enjoyed every minute of it.

But most of all, I enjoyed being with the wonderful, funny, smart, caring, thoughtful, faithful, loving man that God has allowed me to call my husband for over a decade now. I am so thankful for him ... Pedro, I love you!

Happy Anniversary! I'm glad you got to go out and enjoy each other's company in celebration of your 11 years together. And I'm glad you found a way to get to the US Embassy yesterday...if it's any consolation, we awoke to a gray, drizzly day as well, and it never really got much better (although it stopped raining long enough to get the BBQ in!) Love you guys!

Happy Anniversary (a few days late)! It is great when you have a husband that treats you like a queen & is worthy to be treated like a king!
