6 years married...who whuda thunk it!!


So another year has passed and we are again celebrating our Anniversary. Last year I said it would be our last Anniversary before our little one gets here. I won't say that again.....but I can hope it.

You all know that we got married in Maui and so I've posted another wedding picture. This is one of my favorites!! We're hoping to go back for our 10 year Anniversary with a little one in tow and stay at the same place and take some family pictures in the gazebo that we got married in.


So instead of proclaiming that this will be our LAST anniversary sans child....I just want to say Thank You to all our family and friends near and far who have wholeheartedly supported us no matter what. I want to say Thank You for standing by us, for rooting for us, for lighting a candle, saying the rosary, praying for us. I want to say Thank You for hoping for us when we didn't have hope, for carrying our faith when we didn't feel we had any, for the shoulders we cried on...


I want to say Thank you for Celebrating with us each minute step in this long and drawn out process. And although I won't say that this will be our last anniversary I will CLAIM that this coming year is going to bring us all a lot to Celebrate and be thankful for!!!

There...I claimed it!!

What a dream wedding! You guys look so beautiful. Is that a real beach? I feel so old. We will be celebrating our 13th anniversary next week. I actually had to think quickly if it will be 12 or 13 years. This will be your last anniversary without him!!

Man your such a good wife... you keep track of the years. Our last anniversary I couldnt remember how long we'd been married. We went out to eat & celebrated our 5 or 6 year together. Hehehe...

Oh & that is one gorgeous picture!

Happy Anniversary!!

I have been stopping by here for a while now as we are in the talking stage of adopting an older child from Taiwan. We are home 7 months with our daughter from China and no longer qualify for China. We are hoping to adopt a 7 or 8 year old boy. I have to tell you that I love your writing. You are funny and very down to earth.

I will pray for a speedy process you and your husband.
