Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary

December 31, 2008

While we are ringing in the New Year tonight, Pat and I will also be celebrating our wedding anniversary!
It is unbelievable that I take pictures almost daily and yet, this is the most recent photo of Pat and I together....it was taken in August....I guess I need to pass the camera once in a while:)

Four years ago today, we got married in front of all of our family and friends and then rang in the New Year with them before our reception came to an end!! It was a fantastic day.....and I cannot imagine that we will ever experience another New Year's celebration that will be as special or memorable as that one!!

It is hard to believe where our lives have taken us in four years. We have experienced a lot in a short period of time, but it has all been for the better!!

Although life is not perfect, our life is full....full of love and support that will carry us through any situation that is put in our path. I am fortunate to call this man my husband.......he is an incredible father and an amazing partner. The first four years have been a dream come true and I look forward to at least forty more!!
I anxious to see what this new year has in store for us. Happy Anniversary Pat....and Happy New Year to you all....We are headed to the Cape to celebrate and will be back in 2009!!

Just a couple of photos from our wedding and honeymoon...they were all scanned in so they are very fuzzy....I am loving the slideshow option on Fl!ckr.

Hey, New Year's Eve is my anniversary too! Only of the day we met, not our wedding anniversary. That one is on Valentine's Day. I don't know what it is with us and holidays :)

Happy Anniversary!

Thank you for the prayers for my friend. I had to take that post down. I think it had too many personal details in it and I don't want my friend to feel uncomfortable about it.

Happy New Year too!
