You Belong To Me

July 15, 2000 Andy and I were married.

He is my best friend, my lover, the best father I could ask for my children, my reward, and the answer to my prayers.

Then we went to Italy:

This is really what Venice looks like from the air, when you're arriving at Marco Polo Airport. I thought I understood a city on canals. I didn't until I saw this.

We walked everywhere in Venice, mostly following our Fodors Guide and getting hopelessly lost.

This is the Grand Canal and it really looks like this.

Everywhere you look is a postcard waiting to be shot.

When my sister, Danni and I were tweens, we stayed up late one night when my parents were out watching a movie called A Little Romance about an American girl and French boy who run away to Venice. They were told by an old man (Sir Laurence Oliver) that if you kissed under the Bridge of Sighs that your love would last forever.

Andy and I kissed under the Bridge during a gondola ride.

Happy Anniversary, Babe. I wouldn't change a minute.
**Except maybe for that labor and delivery part.

Happy Anniversary!

I saw A Little Romance in the theater in Westwood the first weekend it opened. I may be a little older than you.

2000?!? It's been 8 years? Wow. I still remember that night - your wedding ROCKED.

And I still laugh when I think about the spaghetti in Italy story.

That is wonderful! Happy Anniversary! Don't you just love Italy?????

Venice is at the top of my list to visit. And the Bridge of Sighs...sigh. I've heard that, and have always wanted to do the same.

Happy anniversary!
