Today is our 11th wedding anniversary. This is a picture of our entire wedding party.
This is my favorite picture of Tony from our reception, just the way the lights are makes it lovely. He looks so damn young in this picture.
This my favorite picture of us together from that day. Just a simple one in front of our unity candle.
Our first dance as husband and wife. And, you can see my wedding set on my hand.
11 years ago, I stood before God, our family and friends and vowed to love you through good and through bad, through sickness and health, through richer for poor. And, while we have had more poor than rich, much sickness, and a lot of bad happen, we have also had many good things happen, and times of good health.
Right now we are going through one of the hardest parts of our marriage as I have been in and out of the hospital the past 2 months, dealing with kidney cancer for the past year, and other things that have just been rough. Yet, I know that you love me even more than you did 11 years ago, as I love you even more than I did 11 years ago.
I can see the love in your eyes even when I have annoyed you or even when you are worried about me, in fact especially when you are worried about my health. Last night when you left the hospital I know you had the weight of the world on your shoulders yet right at midnight you remember to message me to wish me a happy anniversary.
I love you baby. I look forward to many more years with you. Hopefully some healthy ones to come as we figure out what is actually going on with me health wise.
Happy Anniversary Baby, you are the reason I wake up every day. You are the reason I dream sweet dreams at night. Thank you for 11 years, I can’t wait to see what the next 11 bring us.
