8 years ago today.
We were wed.
A joyous occasion in which we were surrounded by 37 of our nearest and dearest.
Our scanner refused to work for me today so please excuse the lame-o photography of 8 year old photos.
Capture the spirit of this post not the photography.
Here we are saying our vows and all that jazz.
You know the usual, promising to play catch, promising to laugh with one another and to love one another until death parts us.
And so on.
Truly, whom my soul loveth.
Beloved, here is to 52+ more years.
As a side note and because love is worth writing about.
For our first anniversary we decided to have the inside of our wedding bands engraved with "love notes".
We each chose something for the other but did not reveal our chosen words.
Secretly, we wrote our inscription on a piece of paper and slide it to the jeweler.
Along with our words we included the date 9-29-00.
We both had 9 letters.
A week or so later when we picked up our rings we both wrote down what we thought the other person had engraved. We swapped papers and looked at our rings.
We knew each other so well that our guesses were correct.
Let's turn this into a trivia game!!
Does anyone know what is engraved in our wedding bands?
Hint: each ring is different.
