Ten Years Ago Today

if the sun refused to shine
i would still be loving you
when mountains crumble to the sea
there will still be you and me
"Thank You" Led Zeppelin


Those are the lyrics to the song Doug and I danced to as our first dance at our wedding ten years ago today. It was a gorgeous fall day. We had a beautiful church ceremony, then a wonderful outdoor reception. It was a day to remember.

It's hard to believe that ten years have gone by. It's like I blinked and here we are, ten years later. We're older, grayer, parents to four beautiful children. We've owned three homes, several cars, gone to Italy. We've laughed, cried, folded laundry, bathed children, changed dirty diapers together. I can't imagine doing those things with anyone else. So tonight we'll go to our favorite restaurant to celebrate and tomorrow we'll attempt to take in a Red Sox~Yankees game if the weather holds. I wouldn't want to be doing anything else.

Happy Anniversary honey. I love you.

After all these years a mystery solved. THAT'S what you danced to for your first dance! I'm sorry I missed it, but I was playing in the sand down at the beach with Amy and Joey and then had to dash up the boardway. You've never seen anything sillier than two bridesmaids with their gowns hiked up and madly running back to the tent.

Was it really 10 years ago? It can't possibly be true. It was yesterday.

You'd better be rooting for the Sox!!!

Happy anniversary! We just had our 10yr in May. I feel like everyone should get a free tattoo or something on their big anniversaries, like a corporate pin but better!
