My husband and I are about to celebrate ten years of marriage. Our wedding followed 9/11 by 11 days. A lot of our memories of our wedding are heavily influenced by the shock of 9/11 and the state of the country at the time. We are so lucky to have not lost someone we directly knew in the attacks as my brother-in-law was in the first building when it got hit but survived the ordeal. As it did to the whole country, our family was shaken to the core. 9/11 changed the trajectory of their lives towards our own as because of the attack, my brother-in-law and his wife moved to be away from NY and to be close to us in Chicago. At the time, we felt like our planned honeymoon needed to be put on hold and our cruise to Alaska was postponed. Long story short is we eventually headed on our Alaskan cruise 6 months later.
10 years ago, I was not scrapbooking. I had the want to do it but I did not know how to accomplish it. Luckily for me, I had all of the pictures and memorabilia together in one place and a few months after our trip, I had started throwing some things together and this blog hop forced me to revisit it ten years later with hopes to finish it!
Armed with some stickers, decorative scissors and some tape, this is the front page of the album I started 10 years ago.
Colors: SU Night of Navy, SU Pear Pizzazz, SU Pacific Point
Stamps: SU Travel Log, SU Delicate Doilies
Here is what I have left to scrapbook. I was hoping to get it done for this blog hop but I guess it can take me another ten years to accomplish :) Anyway, I am looking forward to celebrating ten years with my loving husband. I marvel at where our lives are today compared to ten years ago. The business we started is flourishing, we made TWO amazing and beautiful people and I we still deeply love and respect each other. I hope the next ten years are even more amazing!
