anniversary [10] one decade later

Now

Then


I still have the umbrella from our wedding, and I walk with it to and from school in the rain with all of my little ones under it! And funny that we had 6 people in our wedding party, 6 big yellow and white umbrellas! Who knew until I looked closely at this photo today!


Just moments before 3:00 when I was still in my 20's, still had my "maiden name" and a convertible 'Del Sol' that was bright red and only seated two...a seat for me, and a seat for Cliff.

Apparently TIN is the 10 year anniversary gift as told to me by Cliff. He wrote a nice card, and got me a tin of yellow lemons drops. Very significant to those who know and love us. My engagement ring came to me in a bowl of lemons way back in April 1997. We had yellow as our wedding colour. I thought that was a nice touch and he has earned some 'points' today LOL.

My parents also popped over and brought us some beautiful flowers, 2 bottles of 'our' ice wine that were part of our wedding favours, and our wedding almonds. Nice! And, my Mom in Law brought me a couple of sprigs of Lilly of the Valley from the original place where we got married...those travelled with us to our new place here. So special. How thoughtful.

So, here we are ten years later, six kids. Rich in life, rich in love. Rich in blessings. Love is all around us today, and has been with us for the past 1o or more years together.

Let me say we are so rich in so many ways.

Happy Anniversary dear Cliff. I see the next years to be more about health, than sickness and I just know we are going to have MANY wonderful years ahead!

Happy Anniversary to us! Happy Anniversary to us!

Love you,

Cathy xo

You both look younger now than you did ten years ago. How is that possible with a big brood? Perhaps that is the secret to aging!? :-)
Much love on your tenth!
Love B-Maid,
April
