It’s not a date.  It’s a milestone.

This day we begin the adventure of a lifetime…

Today is Alex and my 11th wedding anniversary, and 24th year together, and those the were the first words on our wedding invitation. 

2016-07-09_13-23-12We got married on our 13th anniversary so I’d like to think I get bonus points for waiting so long.  I had a long time to plan my wedding, and since I was a wedding coordinator in a prior career, I had lots of ideas.  Our theme was Champagne- signifying celebration and fun.  Alex’s one request: It needed to be comfortable.  My requirements: It needed to be beautiful and fun at the same time.  I have to say, I think we succeeded.  It was perfect and  I wouldn’t change a thing.

I never could have imagined the adventures Alex and I would eventually have together.  Europe, Asia, Mexico, Camping, 2 homes, a boat, great time with friends and family, and so much more.  There’s been challenges, too.  Broken limbs (elbows, legs and branches), lost loved ones, layoffs, and arguments to mention a few.  No one ever said it would be easy, but it’s definitely been worth it.  It’s flown by, and I can’t wait to see what the future holds.

Today, I remember those adventures, where it started, and I look forward to future adventures together.

Happy Anniversary Alex!  Love you!
