We exchanged “I do’s.” It’s been one roller coaster ride, but here we are – still going strong … in sickness and in health, in joy and as well as in sorrow, in good times and in bad.
I thank God every single day for giving me a husband who loves me unconditionally, God-fearing, good-hearted, generous and who I can count on no matter what. I feel so lucky and blessed that there are times when I ask God what I have done right to deserve him.
Today, I shall not ask for any material things. My heart is overwhelmingly thankful and beaming with joy as we celebrate this milestone. I have been so blessed in more ways than one, I can never ask for more than what HE blessed me with.
Allow me to reminisce and please don’t mind the photo overload.

I got teary eyed when I uploaded this photo. I miss a few of those who were in this photograph.

this was fun. my wedding planner suggested that we incorporate a kissing game in the program at the reception. there were seven couples who gamely joined. the couple who kissed with passion the most, wins. the winner got a cash prize of $100 ( which was awarded right after the game) plus a trip for two to Boracay when we reach our 25th wedding anniversary (this prize will be fulfilled on the day of the anniversary – 12 years from today).
