14 Years of Wedded Bliss

I would first like to say, if I have ever forgotten anybody's birthday or other special day, please don't be insulted. I forget my own special days too. This morning I kiss hubby good-bye before he went to work as if it was just another day. (We're so alike, we both forgot!) It wasn't until I was on the phone with my mom this morning and she wished us a Happy Anniversary that I was reminded. Oops!! I did remember on Monday that our anniversary was today. But today it completely slipped my mind. Not because it's not a special day. It's the day that changed our lives, the day our new life began together.

A brief history of our love story.
We grow up in the same town. To be exact, right across the street from one another. We carpooled to elementary school together. We were not really friends growing up. Our older sisters were best friends. I went off to college and he stayed home. When I graduated from college I came back home. One day I was in a bookstore and there was this guy standing at the magazine rack with back to me. When he turned around I realized it was Chris from across the street. He had a beard and mustache that covered his face but all I could see was his beautiful eyes. And yes I know it's cliche but for me it was love at first sight. And althought he doesn't like to admitted I know at that moment he felt it too. And the rest is history...



We were married on August 20, 1995. It was abeautiful summer day on Long Island.




Through the years our love has grown . We have learned that love alone does not keep a marriage strong. We continue to learn more about each other everyday. Fourteen years later we have grown to a family of four and continue to live, love and learn.


Happy Anniversary Honey!

Happy anniversary. Your blog is terrific. I've only had my blog for 5 months, but if it "disappeared" on blogger I think I would go to bed and pull the covers over my head and have a good cry.

I could have guessed you are an artist from your photographs on Creatively Fit. You certainly have a great eye. And, how you dealt with losing your first blog certainly shows you live by the artist motto..."Use it!" - you took your loss and used it to create something you like even better.
