Celebrating An Anniversary

by derek on September 14, 2007 · 12 comments

The other day I mentioned that I had just passed the six month anniversary for this blog. This coming Sunday, my wife and I will be celebrating our 8th wedding anniversary.

Wedding Anniversary

8 Years!
It is hard to believe that it has already been 8 years.
It seems like just yesterday that we were standing on the Boardwalk at Walt Disney World sharing our vows.
There have been good times and there have been bad times.
I’ve had luck on my side because the good times have far outweighed the bad times, even when I forget some of the rules about being a better husband.
We don’t have any specific plans other than having lined up a babysitter for the kids tomorrow night. We’ll likely head out for a nice dinner and then just spend some quality time without the kids. Nothing too fancy or extravagant.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Stay In The Loop!

“Traditional 8th wedding anniversary presents have a theme of Bronze and Pottery.
A contemporary or modern 8th anniversary present has a theme of Lace and Linen.”
Or so I’m told.

Happy Anniversary to you and your wife. We got married almost 5 years ago in Las Vegas, which is a bit like a Disneyland for grownups . . . you know with gambling 😉 Congrats on the site and new endeavors as well, though I’ve already said that other places!

Thanks to everyone for the kind words and congratulations on our anniversary.
@Nick :: Yes, we were married at Disney with our immediate family in attendance. It was an amazing experience.
@Leo :: You have no idea! 😉
@Brown Baron :: Time goes by too fast sometimes, our kids will be driving before I know it.
@Damien :: Thanks, we actually had thought about Vegas but my wife had her heart set on Disney. She’d visit Disney every year if she could.
