Happy Anniversary

Today is our seventh wedding anniversary. Jerry and I met 14.5 years ago, when we both worked for the same city. I can't believe it's been that long, as time seems to have flown by. I was looking back at our wedding pictures and it brought back such great memories. My mom who is no longer alive, looked so very happy in all of the pictures. I have a funny story to tell to. I remember when we went to light the unity candle, and somebody (Frank or David) forgot to pull the wick up so it was super small and the candle would not light. It was this huge moment and the whole church was quiet and we kept trying to light it. Jerry being the resourceful one, finally took our whole candle that was lit and just stuck it right on top of the unity one. It was hilarious and everyone cheered and yelled!

Jerry had to work today but he did come home a little early and Gracie, Jerry, and I went out for a nice italian dinner. My brother surprised us and called the restaurant without our knowing and they brought out ice cream with a candle in it and sang a song to us. We thought each other had told the restaurant and then figured out who it was.

I love you Jerry and thank you for being the great husband that you are!!! Happy Anniversary!!!

Tanya, I didn't realize it was your anniversary when we talked today. Happy were a beautiful bride. You must have met Jerry right around the time Bob and I got married as we have been married 14.5 years. Here is to many many more years!

Happy Anniversary! You look so cute together. The candle thing is so Jerry.
(Our wedding colors were purple and teal, so almost the same, no wonder we're friends!)
