.....six fabulous years.....

.....this weekend marks six years since we celebrated....we danced, we laughed, we loved....surrounded by friends and family in the state I adore; it was one of the most special and cherished times in my life.....we kicked it off with a party on the beach and the moments kept getting sweeter after that....






.....and it's not an over exaggeration to say that the last six years has been a whirlwind.....New York City started our adventure as a married couple and the time has whipped past us; just as the night we married was over in a fast moving blur.....


......and as much as life hands us set backs, successes, failures and victories, blessings and struggles, I can honestly say that our compassion deepens with each experience and my love for my husband becomes more infused in our web of marriage.....

.....and each passing day, I try to remind myself that marriage is a gift from God.....especially days where my energy is low, my patience is slim and my tolerance is weak.....

.....because it's a blessing to know that my life is fulfilled when we are existing and living as a couple.....and whether it's spending it as a day celebrating life, managing life, coping with life or enjoying the sweet moments of life.....all of these adventures we are doing together.....and all of these days equal months and years of a maturing respect for one another, happiness for the blessings we have been given and strength from the experience of mountains we have climbed.....



.....and we have been fortunate to have had some great experiences together.....






.....and I never thought it was possible to have more gratitude, love and excitement as I did the day we were married.....



......because on that day, we were so incredibly happy....

.....and we have never forgotten to relive those moments in our real, everyday life.....because after the celebration, the flowers, the dress, the cake, the friends, the music and the dancing......










......it was just the two of us, the vows we made and a big empty slate of a future that we were to fill with the things God had in store for us....and it's taken commitment, laughter, work, patience, love, and compassion from both of us.....and so the old saying goes, you get out of life, what you put into it, same goes for our marriage.....

......and if it's this good after six years, well then; I am ecstatic for 60 more.....

.....Happy anniversary, Stefan....cheers to many more....

....143....
