    Anniversary

    It's funny how fast time flies. Today marks our 18th wedding anniversary. You can read about our wedding day here and read about how we met here.

    I scanned a few pictures from our honeymoon in Aruba. Despite the fact that I had cracked ribs sustained from wearing a medieval torture device (i.e. long line bra) and Mr. Sign's case of food poisoning, we managed to have a beautiful trip.

    Here we have me in front a poinsettia tree.
    There aren't many pine trees in the tropics.
    (Have you ever seen someone wear their pants higher than that? I probably didn't need a bra since my shorts covered my girls.)



    I have no idea what was going on with that one sided braid.
    Keep in mind it was the late 80's. Maybe I was starting a fashion trend?



    The only thing nice I can say about this picture is that I'm super tan.



    This is our cake. It was my favorite part of the wedding. It cost twice as much as my dress and tasted like sawdust, but it was gorgeous.



    We paid a lot of money to have this picture taken so I have to put it in every anniversary post for the rest of my life.


    We've weathered many crazy days with grace.
    I can't imagine a day without seeing your face.

    You've protected me like no one else would.
    You helped me to see what no other could.

    Thank you for these last many years
    and for kissing away my glistening tears.

    Without you, I don't know where I'd be.
    I hope that you will forever stay with me.

    Happy anniversary sexy. All my best to you and hubby.

    I love the wedding pics, but think they are the biggest waste of money, next to flowers on the pews. They charge you an arm and a legs for an album that sits unread on a shelf somewhere for the rest of your life. Then when you die, your offspring throw it out. I'd rather use that money for a bi-sexual hooker on the honeymoon for the only threesome one will ever have.

    happy anniversary you two. may you have many more happy years together. (#19 happens for us in a couple weeks)

    You both look grand, Jenn. I had to look more closely at you in front of the pointsettias - behind you was a sign that I could have sworn said "sex shop zapaar". "Paar" means both "couple" and "pair" in Dutch, so you can imagine my confusion!

    Holy smokes, that's probably the biggest stained glass JC I've ever seen and he looks like he's more on guard for you than the most patriotic Canadian hockey player.

    Many happy returns of the day!
