Six Years and Counting...

It's been a rough ride at times, sweeter than honey at others...

My husband and I have been married for six years today.

We opted for a small wedding - just the two of us - in a beautiful Las Vegas wedding chapel. After we said "I do" we had a wonderful Italian dinner accompanied by a violinist. We contemplated going out on the town that night, but surprise, surprise, we were both exhausted by the end of the evening and ended up doing nothing more than going back to our hotel room where I promptly fell asleep. Not the most romantic way to spend your wedding night!

We've been separated by miles, separated in our hearts, but we persevered and stayed together. I've learned how very hard it is to keep a marriage together, but I've also learned how rewarding it can be to live your life with someone you love.

He still makes me weak in the knees when he kisses me and we still hold hands wherever we go. He calls me up at work just to say 'hi', he surprises me with special gifts, and tells me he loves me each and every day.

Tonight we'll celebrate with a dinner and a movie (sans children) and take a moment to think about where we've been and where we're going...
