WOW ... That came fast!

Part of our recent trip to Vegas was to celebrate our 11th Anniversary ... even though it was a week early. Anyhow, it seems as if it was just yesterday that I was going over all sorts of memories in honor of our 10th! Where did the year go?

Anyhow, as I look out today and see the clouds and drizzle and tulips, it's just as it was 11 years ago. And since it didn't matter 11 years ago, I won't let it matter today!

And just for the record, here is a shot of the snow in the mountains 11 years ago:


And the snow in the mountains today:


Gray, overcast skies 11 years ago:

Tulips today (okay - yesterday):


And despite the weather, we were all thumbs up for the future!!!


And the future we have lived so far has been happy! Really Happy!

And I feel just as excited for more of  the future and just as much (okay - much, much more) love in my heart as I did that day. Our promise to each other and to God have been a huge source of strength and peace to me in my daily life. I have enjoyed the fun times, the hard times and the weird times as well. I look forward to the eternity that we have ahead of us, and, as cheesy as it is, this "thumbs up" photo just wraps it all up just perfectly in my heart.

So, even though we will be staying home tonight with sick kids (who are on the road to recovery now - YAY), just remember, we'll always have Santana!!!!
