Happy Anniversary To Me (Oh and Hubby too!)

It was 9 years ago today that I made the best decision of my life...to marry one heck of a guy!


If you ask anybody who was at our wedding they would tell you that it was the "hottest day ever known to man." I would have to agree, but honestly I was the one wearing 6 million layers of dress so I think if anybody deserves to complain it should be me. Well maybe Dave too considering I "made" him wear a wool tuxedo. Oh and did I mention we got married on the end of a pier? Sitting out in the direct sun on the last day of July...okay I agree probably not the brightest thing I've ever done, but the view was beautiful. Perhaps the best part of the wedding was when we were pronounced husband and wife and the boats that were drifting in the marina blew their horns. It was awesome!!

Since that day 9 years ago, we have been through a lot...
  • Moved to Delaware

  • Bought our first house

  • Started new jobs (Dave's still at his one while I've been through a couple!)

  • Bought and sold 6 cars

  • I earned my Bachelor's and Master's degree

  • Welcomed 2 children

  • Said goodbye to 3 grandmothers

  • Visited at least 10 states

  • Went to Disney 3 times

  • Lived through putting an addition on our house

  • Renovated our kitchen and a bathroom

  • Said goodbye to our beloved Mako who we adopted a year before we were married

  • Created many memories that we will cherish forever!!

Like all marriages we've had our ups and downs, our good times and the not so great times, but through it all I'm happy to say that we have stuck together. I couldn't imagine my life without Dave by my side and he had better say the same thing about me!!

Thanks, babe, for 9 wonderful years. I can't wait to see what's in store for our next 9. Maybe a new house closer to work, an inground pool, a trip to Hawaii, that ring, new outfits...I mean the possibilities are endless!!

I love you...Yep, even more than you love me...No, I love YOU more...

  2. Today is our anniversary too! How weird. We are celebrating 4 years. It was sooooooo hot the day we got married also but luckily we only had to take pictures outside. I remember coming in from pictures and standing over the air conditioning vent in my parents house to cool off underneath my 1000 layers of tulle and other weird materials!
