Milestone Anniversary & Marriage Reflections

My husband and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary in February.  To celebrate we decided to take an extended weekend to the Gulf Coast.  I love being near bodies of water.  Biloxi was a perfect choice for us plus its in driving distance (I hate flying).  So we both took a few days off work and hit the road.  I think that people underestimate the beauty and enjoyment of a nice car ride anymore.  Mississipi is only a 6 hour drive.  Car rides give you time to reflect, to meditate. There is something about scenery going by, about breathing different air. In light of it being a milestone anniversary I took advantage of this time.  The most beautiful thing about being married is being able to be quiet sometimes.  There is a certain security that comes with marriage and you dont have to ALWAYS be talking...but I won't get into all that.  I will say that I never thought in a million years that I would have what I have with my husband.  His unconditional love inspires me to be a better person.  I am happy to say that after 10 years of being his wife, I still get tingles when he refers to me as such.  I love him.  
Our 1st Date February 1990
When I met him I wasn't in a very good place.  Our love affair in the 90's didnt last very long.  We broke up :-(  Time & circumstances came between us back then....but it was a good thing, because we weren't ready! I always loved him though.  10 years later he looks me up.  I was single & so was he...  We played Intro's version of Stevie Wonder's "Ribbon In the Sky" at our wedding.

Our Wedding Day
February 2001
 Sure there have been downs, but the UPS have far outweighed them...

We brought these boys with us into the marriage. 
My 2 and his 1
They are brothers now

Maybe some one said this...maybe i saw it somewhere...I cant remember but I'll say it anyway...
If true wealth could be measured in terms of love...I am one of the richest women there is.

February 2011
Our anniversary trip was serene, peaceful and calm. The weather was perfect & so were the views... True love vibes were present & positive energy to begin the next 10 years of this journey. 
I love me some him.

Thanks for reading :-)
