Our Anniversary

(Previously posted on October 12, 2009) 

October 12, 2003 I took a big leap of faith and walked down the aisle and into a new beginning.      Sometimes it seems like yesterday and sometimes it seems like a l-o-o-o-g time but it’s been an interesting ride!     The story of how we met and how he proposed is pretty neat….you can read all about it here.

At our wedding, my brother read this special verse which is one of my favorite Bible verses:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."
1 Corinthians 13:4-8

As far as I know, we don’t have anything special planned.   We don’t make a big deal about birthdays, anniversaries, etc.    It really works out best for me because I whenever I see something I “need” (he says “want”), I just say “that’s for my birthday” or “that’s for our anniversary”….that way I can drag it out all year!   

I just celebrated a “big” birthday in September and got a gorgeous pair of lamps for the bedroom (think Pottery Barn).    I’m really holding out for a complete re-do of the den…just gotta pick and choose my time, right?
