First Wedding Anniversary

Our wedding anniversary will be Monday, November 13th.

I cannot believe it has already been a year. But with all that has happened in the last year, it is also hard to believe it has only been a year!

A year ago we were packing for a wedding cruise. Thirteen of our family and friends joined us for a week-long cruise through the Eastern Caribbean. Two additional friends joined us for the wedding ceremony on St. Thomas Island. It was a perfect wedding day with beautiful vistas, an island breeze and the most important ingredient -- our family and friends beside us.

GLH and I are leaving in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow for an anniversary trip to the Caribbean. We will spend a few days in San Juan, Puerto Rico. A beautiful island with amazing history, we knew last year that we wanted to spend more than a day exploring this gem. On Monday (Nov 13) we fly to St. Thomas. We were so busy getting married there that we saw nothing of the island! We will stay at a resort on St. John's, a 30-minute ferry from St. Thomas.

On this trip we will do the historical sites for me and the snorkeling for GLH. The romantic dinners and walks on the beach are for both! After all, marriage is all about compromise.

We will return Nov 16 with stories and photos.


GLH, I love you! Happy Anniversary!

Happy belated anniversary...

Sounds like an awesome treat!

Although P and I haven't really been on ONE vacation since our wedding, I'd like you to know that we are having our 1 year on Dec. 10th!

I'll be posting my favorite pic on that date because I rarely post pics of P and I on our site...
