Tomorrow Christian and I celebrate our 8th wedding anniversary. As has been the case for most of our anniversaries, we are celebrating it apart. Christian has a knack for being out of town each year on August 7th. I cannot say that I particularly care. I am not one for big celebrations. I certainly don't want to spend any money on gifts, and really don't need anything anyway. I also don't need any special reminders that I am lucky and blessed and wouldn't change a thing about my life if given the opportunity, particularly the part about spending it with Christian. Here we are back on our wedding day in 1999:
There's no question that I had inkling that something big was in the works the day that we met, finally and formally. I just never imagined it would be this good and that ten years later we would be able to see the best of both of us (and maybe the explanation for why we found each other) in La Luz:
Happy Anniversary Christian; come home soon.
