Happy 12 Years

I'll write more later, because 12 years deserves a longer post, but I wanted to post some of my favorite photos of me and the hubby.  I can honestly say that we GET each other.  And we now have a new tradition that I love -- we write each other new vows/a love letter for our anniversary present.  It was all I wanted, and it fit perfectly.

Congrats to the two of you! Very nice pic's. I love your bead soup idea. It's amazing and fun! I have just been getting beads together in a soup and making something out of them. It's so fun! I want to join in the group.
I hope you have a lovely anniversary.
