An Affair To Remember
So yesterday was my 6th wedding anniversary. It kind of sneaked up on me. Amazing how after a few years anniversaries seem to do that. I remember back in high school when Ryno and I celebrated our first year together ... it was such a big deal. Something that I looked forward to almost as much as my birthday. I remember getting a dozen roses and going out to a fancy dinner. I guess that the passage of time, becoming a parent and just plain-old life makes us forget why we celebrate and why it is important to remember.
Since, yesterday was not one for the record books in the romance department (we had dinner at the Mexican restaurant down the street, D-Man would not sit still and I had to take him outside a few times just to appease.) So I decided I would post some photos from our wedding as kind of a tribute to our 14 year journey together.
We were married August 10, 2002 in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho in my Dad's backyard. We were both 25-years-old and had already been together for more than 8 years.
My sister and one of my long-time friends sang "I'll Be" by Edwin McCain and "When I'm With You" by Sherrif (in my opinion the most romantic song ever!) and we wrote our own vows and even toasted with beer mugs.
I am a full-time Momma to a very active 3-year-old boy, D-Man and am expecting another boy in May 2010. I am also married to my best friend in the world, Ryno. I live in the Seattle area and love most everything about it but the high home prices, horrible traffic and long distance to my family.
I grew up in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho and moved to Washington when I was 22, I married my high school sweetheart when I was 25 and had a son when I was 29. Sometimes I miss the hot summers and snow in the winter that I knew growing up, but most of the time I am happy right where I am.
