Family, Sheba

Sheba Saturdays

Just a glimpse into the life of our kitty.

There's been a murder.
This is the prime suspect.
The murderer always returns to the scene of the crime...

Happy Saturday! What have your pets done lately to make you laugh?


Two Years Ago Today…

May 23, 2009 was not an ordinary day. And that was fine by me!

I woke up early and went for a run. Then I hung out with five of my good friends at home and got my hair and makeup done by another friend. It was a fun and relaxing morning.

Then, I put on a pretty dress…

and at 4:30 p.m., walked down the aisle to marry this handsome fellow.

May 23, 2009 is a day I will never forget.

Our wedding was full of family, friends, laughter, and good food

We served breakfast for dinner. For serious. Homemade by our fabulous chef who was a cook at the first IHOP when it opened in 1958 near L.A. For the cake, we served three types of cupcakes: confetti, lemon raspberry, and marble.

It was truly a wonderful day.

As special as our wedding day was… the two years that have passed since then have been even better, thanks to the love, support, and grace given to me daily by Ben.

I love being your wife, Benny. Happy Two Years! I can’t wait for many more. I love you.
