Happy anniversary!

I was browsing facebook this morning and noticed a beautiful post from a friend acknowledging her wedding anniversary. Until that very moment, I had forgotten that C and I have a wedding anniversary today too. Oops!

Truth be told, I don't feel so badly about forgetting the date. Moments before reading the facebook post, I was  thinking about the weekend that C and I just had with the girls. We didn't pre plan anything, yet it turned out to be one of the most enjoyable weekends of the summer. The sun was shining,  and the temperature was perfect. We played in our backyard, went swimming, spent some time with  Grandma M, Auntie M and Uncle W. We got some back to school shopping done, played in the park and ended with a simple home BBQ dinner, just the four of us.

I've mentioned in an earlier post that C and I go back way beyond August 26, 2006. It was a fine day, don't get me wrong, but so much happened in our lives before, and has since. Wonderful and sad, funny and bizarre, we've experienced it all and created some great memories, and will continue to create many more.

We've made a family and a home. We are happy and we are healthy. We are so fortunate and for that I am grateful.

Here's to many more years of us!
