anniversary

8yearsb

"I hear the sound of those big jet engines - Shut down and fade away - The time it takes to open that door is just insane - There's someone on board I'm waiting for - It's so much more to me - Than just another plane..."

Ryan and I dealt with 1 1/2 years of distance, lots and lots of immigrations red tape (including a claim that our 20+ page file had been lost), and when he finally received his fiancee visa and landed in the USA... A Good Feeling. (Can I just say, worlds better from when I had to leave him in South Africa and endure the long and very lonely plane trip home?) We married June 20, 2000. Our 8 year anniversary is today! It's been a fantastic stretch of love, friendship, growth, children, silliness, new directions, harmony.

Congratulations. That's very sweet and a nice piece of computer imagery, too. I didn't know that your husband is from another country. Where is his home?

Strange - Ryan's from Pretoria, South Africa. :) Everyone asks him what brought him to the USA. Ahem, me! ;)
