    Congratulations on your anniversary! I only made it through eight long years with my ex so your post today was a heart-tugger-atter, ya know -the ex would never have shown any type of sympathy, empathy, tenderness like that Lucky girl, you -on many levels I do believe. Sounds like the Groom is definitely a keeper!!! But I’m betting the Bride gives as much as she gets too, don’t you?

    Oh, so much to say. Happy Anniversary!

    I laughed at “I like me, too.”

    And those are some gorgeous banners!

    Happy Anniversary! A beautiful description of a tender moment. Give the hub a pinch from balou and tell him I wanted to check to see if he was real. You’ve got a good one for sure. The banners and poem are lovely (you poem hater you.) 😉

    I dreamed of the one true love too (and not the whole wedding thing – I think I don’t have a romantic bone in my body).

    I know just how you feel, ’cause I was lucky enough to find my one too.

    the two of you are indeed blessed. glad to hear he meant the “in sickness and in health” bit. i hope you’ll be able to mark the anniversary in a more pleasant way once you are feeling completely well.

    and those banners….how very beautiful and what a treasure.

    those banners are really beautiful. for my last wedding, i painted Hall and Oates as God and Adam in Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam from the Sistine Chapel

    i guess it goes to show my marriage was fated from the start, she’s a man eater… watch out boy, she’ll chew you up

    Sniff, that was very touching. I am having an off day with my Groom and it makes me remember that I do love him.

  13. Her Grace says:

    Utterly lovely. Just lovely.

  14. stev says:

    I’d show this to my wife, but she’d totally fall in love with Groom, which would be a downer for me. Happy Anniversary!

    Happy Anniversary…in spite of all the being sick and stuff. This is one of your let’s-see-if-I-can-squeeze-some-tears-out-of-my-fellow-bloggers posts…and it’s been quite successful, I must say. Lovely, moving…now stop getting us all choked up and go get better. Oh, and go hug Groom some more too. 😉

    Happy Anniversary! And yes, I agree, beautiful backdrop. What a welcoming sign, from your mo-in-law. Lucky girl.

    Point the first: I’m not usually the type to have or feel emotions (less room for Doritos with them around), but that was lovely, or whatever people who have emotions say to tip their metaphorical cap.

    Point the second: I effing hate that Santana song. I also hate that whenever I’d set up my joke by saying, “Yeah, all those magazines are saying, ‘Santana’s cool again,'” people would step on it and say, “Yeah – he’s always been cool” before I could say, “He’s never been cool.

    And there we would stand, this Santana fan and I, forever separated by the sizable chasm of Good Musical Taste.
