Yesterday (Friday February 13th) was our 16th Wedding Anniversary. It seems like time has jumped ahead so very quickly, that I honestly do not know where the years have gone.
It was a brutal winter back in 1993...we had been hit with some wicked snow storms and we were worried that our guests might not come if the weather was poor. We lucked out that weekend...it was cold but we didn't get more accumulation.
With our family and friends as witness we were married in the church two blocks from my home and then off to the old Warplane Heritage Museum for our photos. It was sooooo cold in the hanger that my poor feet were frozen (I had the cutest little shoes but needed boots). My poor wedding party were half froze as well. We had some great photos with the vintage aircraft as the backdrop.
Then it was time to party. We were whisked off in our limo to the hall for a lovely dinner, heartfelt wishes and a fantastic party. The night went so quickly and I was overwhelmed by all these people who where there for us...it made my heart swell. I'd been told everyone enjoyed the meal and had a great time -- and that made me very happy. For our wedding favours and in keeping with Valentine's we gave little cherubs as a keepsake.
We took off to Toronto right after the reception for our flight to Montego Bay the next day. We had to be up in the middle of the night to be at the airport for 3 hours prior for International departures for our early morning departure. When we arrived...poor Michael was a little bit wound up...we went to meet with our transfer bus and the guy took our bags and put them on..when Michael got on and took them off...the guy reminded him...RELAX MAN, YOU'RE IN JAMAICA NOW. Poor Michael. He didn't unwind till we got to the resort and he finally chilled out with a nice welome rum punch. After we'd been there a few days...he was right in tune with the Island and it's mantra. We had a great time...we toured some old plantation homes...we did Dunns River Falls and even had a honeymooners Lagoon Cruise at night.
Back to reality...a new job...a new apartment...a whole new beginning...a new adventure.
