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.
We 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!
