My Two Year Wedding Anniversary

It was on November 5th, 2005 on Anna Maria Island in Florida that I married my best friend. We had a very small destination wedding surrounded by a small group of close family and friends.

The Promise

"Across the years I will walk with you
In deep green forests, on shores of sand,
And when our time on earth is through,
In heaven too, you shall have my hand."
