Eleven years ago today at 5pm in a 100+ year old historic little church just outside our Nation's Capital I wed my sweetheart. It was a beautiful, crisp, December day (thankfully without all of this crazy snow we have today!!).

Each year for our annversary I get an engraved pewter or silver-plated ornament with the date and what anniversary we are celebrating. It is a neat tradition and so special to hang them all on the tree each year and then add the new one.

Eleventh anniversary ornament

First anniversary ornament

The girlies have a sleepover at a friend's house tonight so Paul and I can go out (and come home!) alone :)

Happy eleventh anniversary, babe!!
