Fireworks of a Different Kind...

While our wedding was 10 years ago, the celebration continues to this day.

Today is the my tenth wedding anniversary and also the 234th celebration of our nation's independence. I cannot think of a better day to get married on, for each year the celebration is a real "blast"! (Please tell me you appreciate a dry sense of humor; the joke was borrowed from my hubby, Hans!)

We had a beautiful afternoon wedding in a wedding chapel nestled deep in the heart of our county, and shared the day with our cherished family and friends. The journey from that day until now, like any marriage has been full of work, cheer, growth, and reward. It's uniquely ours and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

While we reflect on the days behind us, we walk hand in hand toward the journey that is in store for us. The element that weaves commonly throughout the journey? Love.

Love does not consist of gazing at each other, but in looking together in the same direction. -Antoine de Saint-Exupery

When is your anniversary? Do you share it with an national holiday, or other significant occurrence?
