Happy Anniversary and Father's Day

11 years ago this very weekend we celebrated the start of our marriage along with Father's Day. My amazing dad walked me down the aisle on Saturday June 20th, 1998 - it seems like yesterday, yet it doesn't.

This year Joe took me out for our anniversary to one of our favorite local restaurants - a little calmer than last year. Last year he pulled off an amazing 10 year anniversary surprise party - he had me totally fooled. Friends and family were there with us and it was so wonderful to look around the room on that night and remember most of those same faces being at our wedding 10 years earlier!

We casually celebrated Father's Day today with bigger plans for next weekend since my dad was home for less than 24 hours in between week long business trips.

It has been a great weekend to reflect - Joe is an amazing husband, father, and friend. I thank God for joining us together and I thank my Dad for being the perfect example of what a husband and father should be. I love you both so much - thank you for both being so wonderful, compassionate, loving, protective, and amazing men.

You look exactly like you did 10 years ago! We should all be so lucky. :) So happy for you and your lovely family.

Chicago looks like loads of fun too. Did you say no humidity - wow! Can't say the same for Kentucky, but it's still gorgeous. Glad your summer is going so well!
