Celebrating 10 yrs of marriage this weekend!
Then, 2001

We celebrated 10 years of marriage this weekend. Ten years. We celebrated by spending the night out, having long long meals + walks together, and enjoying a long precious night of sleep. It was awesome. We also spent time pouring over our early scrapbooks where we saved everything having to do with our early years: every little love note and card we wrote to one another, photos, lists of dreams, wedding plans, and so much more. We found our original vows we wrote on little scraps of paper (in case we got nervous and forgot them during the wedding), and re-read them with much tenderness. We reminisced about all the saving we did back in 2001 to cover most of the expenses of our modest wedding (approx $2000 according to the scribbled notes we found in our planning binder!) and how the day remains one of our most blessed, favorite days.

My mom handmade all the wedding programs which read, “Today our love is given wings.” And indeed, it was the day our love was given wings. I am so thankful.

Togetherness
Now, 2011

The time together this weekend felt precious, like a good dose of perspective about all that we are so thankful for, a re-evaluation of where we’re at, how we’re doing, and what our dreams our for the next 10 years. In some ways, I’ve missed having hours and hours and hours of time just with John, lounging about, dreaming, wandering, eating out (a lot), movie watching, shopping together, traveling together, sleeping in together. Oh how I miss those times! So yes, this weekend was pure bliss to have a bit of that together, just like old times. And then, of course, we missed baby like crazy and ran home to see him before bedtime. Ahh, parenthood! Togetherness! Family! It really is love with wings.
