I cannot believe that Pete and I have been married 11 years today. How lucky am I to be married to such a stand-up guy. He is my best friend and husband. That makes me one lucky girl. He always gets me these nice cards and writes these beautiful messages. I decided to actually make him a little mini album/card so I came up with this Anniversary Mini Album (click to see each page). I could pick out about 10 things wrong with it (not my favorite work) however it came from the heart. There is so much I could put in an album that I am thankful for. This by no means includes it all but I wanted make something quick for him. I am so used to making things for other people but have never really done anything for Pete. Also, I am so used to capturing the kids with my camera that I found it hard to find photos of him. I am going to make sure I get him in front of my camera more often whether he likes it or not.
Today I took the kiddies to the park and I am waiting for Pete to come home for the the anniversary celebrations to begin….I was thinking: dinner by candlelight, soft music in the background, love-making by the woodburning stove. It will be so romantic. Ok, so maybe it will be a fluorescent-lit family restaurant with three kids and 400 early-bird special eating seniors, the sound of Sponge-Bob in the background, and a kiss by a Glade plug-in. Now that is my idea of romance. I am just happy to be celebrating that 11 years!
