On this day

 To quote The Princess Bride

Ma-wige is what bwings us togever today.
Ma-wige, dat bwessed awangement.
Dat dweem wiffin a dweem.
(check it out here)

8 years ago today it was stinkin' HOT.
and humid.
and it poured buckets for about 15 minutes which happened to be when I was walking down the isle.

8 years ago today, the Captain and I were wed.

and it was awesome!

we were young
and skinny
and blissfully naive about hardship and suffering
and madly in love.

And we still are...
madly in love.

I am a better woman because of the blessings God has poured out on me through the Captain. I am richer then I deserve. Our 8 years together has brought such joy and laughter to my life.  1 dog, 1 house, 3 kids and a couple crisis later, I can honestly say...
I am one very blessed lady.
To celebrate our anniversary, the Captain and I spent Saturday all to ourselves in an elaborate and romantic date-like setting... painting our dinning room... because WE thought it was in desperate need of new paint.
It looks fabulous, BTW.
