Eric and I on our Anniversary 2008
Red roses from my sweet guy!
Yes, today is our 17th Wedding Anniversary.
Eric and I cater for lots of brides and grooms each weekend. In fact this past Thursday we had our tasting for 11 groups of people at the tearoom. It is so much fun being in the wedding business and getting to share in a very meaningful day in the life of a couple. The day they say I do! But more important is to have someone that you're still happy you said I do too after many years together.
Eric bought me this Anniversary book in the beginning of our marriage and I must say it is the most romantic present ever. On our wedding anniversary each year we always set aside a special time to look at our wedding picture(which is on the first page of the book). We reminisce about our special days together and write where we lived that year and what memorable events have taken place in our lives.
It has been a delight for us to faithfully record each year in this book. Hopefully, our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will all enjoy seeing the photos and reading about our life together. It is important to keep a family history, for memories bind us together and a written history gives roots to a family.
There is also the Apache Wedding Prayer at the front of the book:
Now you will feel no rain
for each of you will be shelter to the other
Now you will feel no cold
for each of you will be warmth to the other
Now there will be no loneliness for you
Now you are two persons, but there is only
one life before you;
Go now to your dwelling place
to enter into the days of your togetherness
And may your days be good and long together.
1 Corinthians 13:4-7 "Love bears all things, believe all things, hopes all things, endures all things, love never ends."
