18 Years

18 years ago, today, Tony and I married in the Silver Bells wedding chapel in Reno, NV. Kind of cheesy, I know. But, already having a child (Michael was 11 months old) made the whole "large wedding, white dress," thing seem unnecessary. But why Reno? Why Silver Bells? In 1970 while in college, my parents eloped to Reno and married in the Silver Bells wedding chapel. They married there, because my mom's brother eloped and married there. And a few years later, my mother's younger brother married in Reno as well. It was kind of a family tradition, I guess we are not all the big wedding type!
I got 2 anniversary celebrations this year. Saturday night Tony and I went to dinner and a movie:

Then Sunday night we went to the Brazilian BBQ with Michael and Mercy, and then Michael treated us all to a movie (what a guy!).

So, happy anniversary to my husband, my friend, and father of my beautiful children. You always make me smile, we laugh everyday day, and I can not imagine a life without you. Here's to the next 18 years!

Some of the best weddings I've been to were small and some even involved eloping. Makes me feel special when someone elopes and I am invited...how does that even work? :)

Happy anniversary!
