Pondering... Reminiscing... Celebrating...

It's thursday night, almost the weekend guys! Thank you for those of you who have read my 1st blog anniversary post. Although not many of you chose to comment, no worries, I felt the love :) 

And therefore, I'm giving my first giveaway to another mom blogger who is inspiring, talented and super creative...

Loralai's Mommy from Baby Chronicles!!!

I want to thank her so much with all my heart for all her kind words and support with my blog. And her personal blog is so adorable and way cuter than mine! She has so many beautiful creations as well at Sweet L Designs. So be sure to check it out! (I'll message you on facebook Loralai's Mommy to get your info)

On a more personal note, I want to share a short little story with you...

About 4 years ago, these two kids, as young and career minded they were, almost eloped at one point. But thank God they didn't!

And on September 15, 2007 they tied the knot... properly... with all the glitz of a big wedding, in the presence of all their loved ones and in front of God.

Those two crazy kids was obviously my hubby and I.

Fast forward to yesterday when we celebrated our 3 year anniversary...

We thought it would be neat to go back to the old ceremony site. It was on a beautiful garden on a cliff over looking the lake.

It was great to revisit that special day, to stand there where we said our vows and kissed as husband and wife for the first time.

Then, we went to have our anniversary dinner at The Keg Steakhouse. Although I was more opting for sushi, it was hubby's turn to pick since we already went to a sushi restaurant the year before.

But I enjoyed it to bits. It felt to wonderful to sit down and have a meal like adults. I'm sure those of you with children know what I mean. The ambience was romantic, our server Patrick was simply wonderful and gracious, the food was divine and the conversation was a delight. I felt blessed.

Dinner was...

Drinks: Pineapple Juice for hubby; Margarita for me
Appetizer: Crab, Parmesan & Spinach Dip
Hubby's main course: Grilled Top Sirloin cascaded with creamy wild mushroom sauce with baked potato

My main course: Filet mignon wrapped in applewood bacon with twiced baked potato
Side: Trio Sampler of steamed asparagus, sautéed mushrooms and sweet potato fries.
Dessert was compliments of the house! Billy Miner Pie, a mocha ice cream on a chocolate crust with hot fudge, caramel and almonds.

And I could not ever, no matter how I tried, finish my dinner. So leftovers was kindly boxed for me and I had it for lunch today!

During our dinner, my hubby couldn't get over how so much has happened between the 3 years of our marriage. It actually feels like we have been married for way more than that. I guess that just shows how we have grown as a couple since that time. 

With so many things that life has thrown at us, I am definitely blessed to have my hubby not just as a support but as a partner in this life.

Those vows we originally promised to each other and to God has now a more deeper meaning to us. 

Looking back to who we were 3 years ago, we certainly did not have the faintest idea what being married really is. 

I thank God that although we were just a couple of kids 
"in-love", He has given us the will power to stay strong and to stick with each other: for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health.

And I do declare that these two lovey-dovey couple...

are newlyweds no more...
