The BIG 1-0

It was July 1997. The sun was hot that day and I worried that our guests would be too warm in the church, that the groomsmen would wilt during pictures, that the cake would melt.

I stood at the back of the church with my dad and my “girls”. I wasn’t nervous. My cousin was singing “You know I love you, I always will. My mind’s made up by the way that I feel…” I could see Homer standing at the front of the church, looking a little sweaty and nervous.

The bridesmaids proceeded up the aisle. Then the adorable flower girl. Then it was just me and Dad. He gave me a light peck on my cheek and said, “this is it”.

The ceremony was nice. Short. Respectful. Jewish elements in a Christian church. And so, we were pronounced husband and wife, partners for life.

Ten years seems like a long time. Ten years ago I lived in a different house, drove a different car, worked a different job, had no kids. Ten years seems like a long time, but it’s really not. Like any married couple, we’ve had our problems, our strong differences of opinions, our squabbles. But, we’ve been married 10 years, and it truly has seemed effortless to get to this point.

So… how does a rockin’ pair like us celebrate our 10th Anniversary?


Climbing



Golfing


Going on the same rides over and over again



And having some good ol' family fun at Santa's Village


Happy Anniversary to us!

Congrats!

Man, that is one good-looking family. It's no wonder two such regulation hotties produced such cute kids :-)

Your kids are adorable, and cograts on your 10-year mark.

aaah, Canada- I was going to ask you if the Santa's Village you went to was in New Hampshire, so now I'm guessing, no.

Happy anniversary! Wow. 10 years. That's awesome. The other day I realized (we just hit 6 years) that when I was younger and unmarried people would say it was their 10th anniversary, and I didn't get what the big deal was.
And now I do!
You look so happy. Congratulations.

Tessie - *blushing*

Sara - Ha ha! No, we went to the much more lame (but still fun)version in Bracebridge, Ontario!

Laural - thanks! I know what you mean. It is a big deal these days, I think.
