10 YEARS!!!!!!

My sweet Benny and I are celebrating 10 years of marital bliss today!

We have lived more in 10 years than some people get in an entire lifetime. We came into this marriage wounded from our pasts. Now we're healed. We have 2 more kids, giving us a total of 6. And we've moved 1000 miles forward, both in house and in our hearts.

We have always gotten something to share for an anniversary gift to each other. This year we broke from that tradition. Last night, he gave me a 5 diamond anniversary band.

My camera doesn't show it, but the diamonds total a carat and are exquisite.

I got him a 1932 Philco Cathedral Radio, for his collection. It arrived today. He will love it!

Gotta go. We're off for a night of fine dining and celebrating each other.

Congratulations Mom & Dad. It's been a great 10 years.

...my God, it's been 10 years.

When do I get out of here? :D

Just kidding. I love you.

Congrats! That is one HONKIN' ring! And, on that date, ahem, don't do anything I wouldn't do. . .

I'm a little late - but Happy Anniversary! The ring is gorgeous. I have a friend at school that collects old radios - he'll be impressed.
