Yeah Baby, Double Digits

I can hardly believe I’ve been married for a decade.

I thought it would be fun to surprise SwingDaddy with something from the bakery that made our wedding cake, but I discovered that Nancy had closed Nancy’s Fancies. Next, SwingDaddy suggested that we finally get around taking our rings back to the jeweler for polishing, but it turns out the he retired last summer. This made me nervous to call the hotel where we were married, but fortunately, it’s not only still standing, but thriving.

We headed there for brunch last weekend while my parents were in town and able to watch the boys. The sunlight sparkled on the lagoon and we strolled past the fountain where we stood ten years ago in front of all our friends and family. We had better photography on that occasion, but the arms-length self portrait will do just fine.

Here’s to many more years, sweetie!

P.S. I wrote a wedding post titled, Something Old, Something New, and a Little Botox Too at Silicon Valley Moms Blog. Check it out here!

Happy anniversary!! What a wonderful milestone.

I just realized that when the husband and I hit 10 years, my daughter will already be in college and my son will be heading into his last year of high school. This is the drawback of marrying the wrong person the first time. ;) Congrats to you on picking right from the start!
