Celebrating 10-Year Anniversary – February 11 Reflections


Hubby Dave and I celebrated 10 years of marriage yesterday, on February 11th. We have been together for 13 years after meeting through online dating, but we spent 3 years together to make sure this was the “real thing” before getting married on February 11, 2006.

We had a small, cozy family and friends ceremony at Dave’s dad’s and step-mom’s house in Lewiston (next town over from ours).

I’m thankful God has brought us through good times and bad, over and around the ups and downs, and never left us nor forsaken us.

I am thankful for a husband who loves me and accepts me, flaws and all, who stays committed to me and who is willing to even move to New Hampshire (back to NH for me) so I can be near my adult kids who still live there – and to my grandchildren who have come along in the past few years!

Dave also had flowers delivered to me.

We went out to dinner at our favorite restaurant last night. On the way there, Dave told me he had a confession. He said he was a flower delivery “virgin,” because he had never arranged to deliver flowers to a woman in his past. So it made this flower arrangement even more special for our 10th anniversary! (He HAS brought flowers home many times over these 13 years, but never had them delivered before!)


Do you have any special events this month, other than Valentine’s Day?

What are your favorite things to do when celebrating special events?

    Happy Anniversary to you and Dave! I love the quote. It’s so true that it doesn’t matter how strong you started. What’s important is your ability to hold on and your mental and emotional conditioning to finish the race.
