Six Years Ago Tomorrow...

Six years ago--on July 10, 2004--I made one of the best decisions I've made in my relatively short life, and married the greatest guy ever. 


I honestly don't remember much about the wedding. It was all kind of a blur of, "go here", "pose this way", "say 'hi' to this person"--plus a whole lot of trying not to trip or spill anything on my dress (though Miles took care of that for me when he lost his balance and stepped on part of it as we did this pose. Left a nice big footprint. Men!) :)


And don't worry, I'm not going to get sappy or wax poetic. I simply thought I'd mention, since this is still one of the most important days of the year to me. We celebrate every year by going back to San Diego and staying at the same hotel we stayed at after our wedding.

And this year, I'm planning to unplug. No email. No work. (You'll probably see me on Twitter, but come on, I have to have SOMETHING!) Just some much needed R&R, hanging out by the pool with a good book and my wonderful husband beside me. It'll be a short trip (we're just going for the weekend--it'll be back to life as usual on Monday) but with everything I've been juggling it'll be just what I need.

Hope you all have an equally wonderful weekend, and I'll see you on Monday!

  7. Shannon, I just had my anniversary last weekend and I think more than ever, marriage takes a lot of work. Each year ought to count like a dog's life-- one year = several :) Enjoy your anniversary! Beautiful pictures!

  9. CONGRATS!! Lovely photos, and enjoy your romantic weekend getaway. :)

    Yesterday was our wedding anniversary...15 years! And you know what? I love him even more today than I did then. Unlike what Marissa said above, I have found being married to my husband the easiest and best thing I do. My heat still skips when he walks in the room or watching him with our daughter, and not a day goes by that he doesn't make me laugh until tears roll down my face. He's my best friend. (oops, I just waxed sentimental in your stead. ;)

    I hope you relax and unwind this weekend. *cheers*
    Love,
    Lola

  16. Happy Anniversary! We just celebrated our 8th anniversary- I SO wish we could go away for the weekend. Heck, I'd even take one night away! We exchange the "traditional" gifts with each other and see who can be the most creative. I always win. Enjoy your weekend together as you celebrate this most important day!

  31. Happy Anniversary!!! What gorgeous pics!

    I would like to mention how unfair it is that you look exactly the same 6 years later.

    My husband and I have been together for almost 22 years...which makes it hard for me to admit and then keep saying I am 29.
