On a beautiful, breezy, warm Saturday evening six years ago, my husband and I promised to love, honor, and cherish one another forever on the sandy shore of Lake Michigan, barefoot and all. We both agree that to-date, that has been the happiest, most joyful day of our lives. Being at our favorite up north destination, surrounded by family and friends on the beach, with the dance party that followed – it will live on in our hearts as nothing short of incredible, romantic, amazing, and FUN!
As we do every year to celebrate, we are on vacation over the coming week. This year we decided to stay in the state and head up north to a new place for an opportunity to relax, take in the sights, and just be together. It’s a nice change of pace for us and we intend to enjoy it to the fullest, complete with reading, swimming, hiking, good eating and conversation.
Today, though, I stop and take pause and thank God for bringing the man I love into my life. For the journey we have shared the nine years we’ve been together, six of which we’ve spent as “Mr. and Mrs.” For growth. For commitment and loyalty. For laughter. For hugs and kisses. For dreams shared. For love.
Here’s to us, Kenny G. I adore you. Happy Anniversary!
