17 years

January 19th 1991 ...

WOW! I can hardly believe we have been married for nearly 17 years. This Saturday we will celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary. When Riz and I started dating in the summer of 1988 we never dreamed we would be here 17 years later. If anyone would have asked us then, I am sure that we would have both given a description of a different life. I know that I speak for Riz when I say we are right where we want to be, right where we are supposed to be...I love Riz more the anything else in this world. Almost anything, I know that he understands that I love Sophia even more then I love him and I know he feels the same way. I know we both would not have it any other way. We leave tomorrow for a weekend at Disney World with our best friends Matt and Lisa (also celebrating 17 years of marriage this year April 19th). We will be relaxing at the Bonnet Creek Resort for 2 nights. Saturday we will see Cirque DE Soleil La Nuba (if you have not seen this go see it as soon as you can it is great)...The music you are listening to is the song we had our first dance to at our wedding. It is Love Lift Us Up Where We Belong By Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warrens. It was the theme song to the Movie An Officer and a Gentleman (one of my favorites). This song always make me smile and brings back all those wonderful memories from our wedding and the reception 17 years ago....

Now ordinarily I would put a lovely little picture of Riz and I on our wedding day here, but because we where married so long ago we have no pictures from our wedding in digital form. So instead I will post this picture of New Orleans that is where we went on our Honeymoon...
