Today I say "I do" and so our life begins....

Here's a little schmaltzy sentiment for you. Seven years ago today I said "I do". Did I have any idea of what was in store for me? Or what my life would become? Or that we would someday be rearing twins? Clinging to what was once sanity? Guzzling fine wine(since the chillins) as if it were an IV?!. Living in D.C.? Did you sweetheart? Did you? I often ask myself if you had it to do over again, would you? Easy, tigger we're connected at the hip now or as you said (remember our vows) until death do us part!(you're not dead...) You know (or at least I hope you do) I wouldn't even have to think twice--no one holds a candle to you! I love you oodles and oodles and don't know what I'd do without you. I'm glad there's you to smile at me, and to share my thoughts and dreams. I'm glad you love me too. You still take my breath away baby. Yeah, honey I would marry you all over again! I wouldn't change a thing. Well, maybe a little more sleep and a lot more sex, (did I say that out loud?) but my life is so much more than I ever imagined.

I find myself bragging(shocking) that I have such an amazingly patient(need to be with the crazy one) loving husband and two fantastically scrumptious little girls and Mai! Makes me tingle all over with pride or else I pee'd myself. Yeah, so I'm a bit of a cheeky crazy momma who loves her family. I can't help myself.

I want to share the anniversary card(exactly as she wrote it) Mai made for Jeff and I. It made my heart swell that she even knew it was our anniversary! I don't remember talking about it. Note to self; Must remember what I talk about...not that I forgot honey. I'm not a weepy person but I found myself chocked(touched my heart) up and slobbering like a St. Bernard! I was speechless. Not only did she make the incredibly sweet card but she also included amazing gifts she had brought from her home country--Thailand.

Dear Rony & Jeff, (host mom & dad)

Happy Wedding Anniversary!

I wish Rony and Jeff are lovers (so do I) who are the most happiness in the world. I'm so glad

that your are my host parents. (o.k. now I'm sobbing ).

Thank you so much.

Love Mai..

Sweet Mai... we love you too. You are like a daughter to Jeff and I and we feel more than lucky to have you in our life. Thank you, thank you for being a part of our big crazy universe and sharing your world with us! Big hugs and Le-smooches to you my dear sweet gorgeous child. May your year with us be filled with loads of love, laughter and fond memories.

Happy Anniversary my dear sweet husband, I love you more than the Universe. (top that!)

Rony xxooxx

Happy anniversary my dear friend.
Remember to turn in 'early' tonight.
Your life is finally complete and I hope that on today of all days you celebrate life to the fullest. I'm sure some caviar and champagne will make an appearance?
I'll toast you tonight (any excuse).

Oh and happy to see Madeleine McCann's info on your site. I too posted it on my blog with the hopes that this sweet little girl will be found SOON!

Happy 7th anniversary!

There are a lot of May anniversarys going on on these adoption blogs -- very interesting!

Your exchange student is such a sweetie.

Many of your pix didn't show up on the blog when I looked at it, but those that did are lovely.


Beverly said...

Okay that was sappy and sweet. Congrats on the anniversary. Great photos too. Cute girly girls all 4 of you.

I'm here at work kinda grumpy and trying to steal time away to catch-up on blogs. Your blog was the first (as it always is, Rony) and of course the best, too.

Happy Anniversery! We were 7 years may 13th.

LOVED the post about playgroup. Go to my blog and see post on playgroup. scroll down to see pic of playgroup host child in room due to meltdown. most playgroups end this way with mommies slugging "mommy juice" (aka wine) back.
