My Anniversary is Today




(this photo was taken 2 yrs ago)
19 Years ago my sweet husband and I
 exchanged vows and began
our life as a blended family.
It was a simple wedding, 50 guests,
close family and friends.
We did not have a wedding party,
our four sons stood up with us.
Two years later our son Alex
was born, uniting the boys in
brotherhood.


This man is my best friend, my soul mate.

It wasn't always easy, blended families
bring a myriad of challenges,
but having Bill as my partner through
it all, certainly made the last 19 years
the best of my life.

As we near the beginning of our
empty nest years
I cannot imagine anyone else
I'd want to dance the rest
of my days with.
Happy Anniversary Sweetheart!

  6. Happy anniversary!
    I can so relate to your feelings and thoughts.
    I remarried at 50 and we will celebrate our 8th anniversary in July. We each brought 3 children to our marriage and our family is mixed rather than blended! But we are happy - friends, soulmates =- a wonderful description!
    Take care.
