Ten years ago today...

Ten years ago today, David and I went on our first date. He traveled all the way from New Hampshire to Montreal to take me out.

(David and me - Fall 2006 added to an art journal page in 2008)

Nine years ago today, we got married. I traveled from Montreal in a U-Haul truck with my car on a trailer in the back and my black cat Georges doped up in the cab, all the way to New Hampshire to marry him...

David and I, we have been going the distance since the very beginning of our relationship...

We have hit bumps in the road and seen them through together...

And we have provided a home for one each other's heart at the end of the day's journey...

After ten years together, we have learned that the road in front of us may not always be clear,

(Art journal page detail - February 2008)

But the One who we will be traveling that distance with always is...

I love you, My Sweet Man.

Happy Anniversary and here's to our safe and always love-filled travels...

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to you both!!! What a love story -- and having met you both it is evident how deep that love travels, not just in miles and distance, in breadth and depth.

And I'm smiling at the wedding photo -- I saw that when I was in your home and thought "how beautiful".

Love truly knows no barrier...it will take you wherever you need to go ♥

Happy Anniversary you two!!!

You are a sweet and lovely couple
through and through. A decade of
REAL life and REAL love. How wonderful.

Maybe it's a David thing, but we got
married on the same date as our first date too!

Enjoy this time in your warm home with your cuddly furry ones.

Hugs,

Happy Anniversary, Kim! What a beautiful tribute to your marriage. I especially loved what you wrote about providing "a home for each other's heart at the end of the day's journey". This is what marriage really is, isn't it? Thank you for the inspiration, and many congratulations! Love, O xo

Ten years makes a milestone in my book! Eleven, if you count the first "dating" year. It's a rare thing to find someone who you can stick it out with through thick and thin. Cherish him, I know you do already though. Happy Anniversary and New Year, Oh Queen of my Arts!
