Happy Anniversary To Us!

The Night of the Proposal - 2/14/2006

He is SO HANDSOME... Thank You Lord.
Look Tony, it the "salt n pepper" shakers - (Fireproof)
Though, they are VERY different, you always see them Together ;)

THE NIGHT OF THE PROPOSAL - Valentine's Day 2006
Yes, we planned our entire wedding in only 6 months!!! We met each other in November of 2004, ironically at another restaurant too, (we really love to eat). Then, in August of 2006, we held our ceremony in our very first house together on Mill Road in East Norriton, Pa and it was the most stunning, simple, intimate setting with family and friends and kids at our favorite place, home, then a celebration at the Blue Bell Inn. It was so meaningful to the both of us, as our children were our wedding party too! This was during a time in our lives where Christ was truly entering our hearts, minds and lives and leading the way for us.

We were dressed to the nines as you can see, because I had a feeling something special was taking place... then, Tony took me out to Sullivan's Restaurant (my most favorite place) it's an "old school" fine dining, jazz club and restaurant located in King of Prussia, Pa! and then treated me with the world's best Surf n Turf meal ever!!! Of course, the surprise ending - he actually got down on his knee in front of me and before the whole restaurant, that night too... I was teary eyed and said YES, of course, then we closed the evening with the most excellent kiss and dessert!!!

Today is our "Third Year" Wedding Anniversary!
Yes, we're still technically "Newly Weds" some might say...

I chose to share our special memorable photos particularly of our engagement, as this truly marked the beginning of a new life for us both (a second chance if you will), not only as becoming husband and wife, but walking with Christ together as a new family in full commitment and devotion to each other! I also want to tell everyone how much I absolutely love God for bringing me to a place in my life where I truly began sharing in life's adventures, joys, and struggles with the most wonderful man named, Tony who has grown along with me in loving Christ and building a stronger, lasting relationship with Him and in that growth has shown me the most amazing kind of love that I couldn't possibly mention in words to this very day!

Looking forward to many more years together along with our adorable children...

Happy Anniversary, My Dearest Anthony!
I am his and he is mine, my beloved and my best friend.
