Anniversary Song.

First Meeting...

Best Man & Maid of Honor. October, 1994. Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Five Years Later...

Bride & Groom. September 18th, 1999. Santa Fe, New Mexico.

In the interim...

Living in Sin on Agua Fria Street. Santa Fe, New Mexico.

To Steven,
Today and always, I am grateful for the gift that you are, and the life that we share. Happy Anniversary.

To my Cyberspace pals,

Grab your honey, press play, sing along LOUDLY.


Have you ever seen a sight as beautiful
As that of the rain-soaked purple
Of the white birch in spring?

Have you ever felt more fresh or wonderful
Than on a warm fall night
Under a mackerel sky,
The smell of grapes on the wind?

Well I have known all these things
And the joys that they can bring
And I'll share them all for a cup of coffee
And to wear your ring

Have you ever had the pleasure of watching
A quiet winters snow slowly gathering
Like simple moments adding up?

Have you ever satisfied a gut feeling
To follow a dry dirt road that's beckoning you
To the heart of a shimmering summers day?

Well I have known all these things
And the joys that they can bring
And Ill share them all for a cup of coffee
And to wear your ring

And I don't know how I survived those days
Before I held your hand
Well I never thought that I would be the one
To admit that the moon and the sun
Shine so much more brighter when
Seen through two pairs of eyes than
When seen through just one

Have you ever seen a sight as beautiful
As a face in a crowd of people
That lights up just for you?

Have you ever felt more fresh or wonderful
As when you wake
By the side of that boy or girl
Who has pledged their love to you?

Well I have known all these things
And the joys that they can bring
And now every morning there's a cup of coffee
And I wear your ring


  1. Happy Anniversary!!!

    Is your wedding photo on top of the La Fonda? We go to Santa Fe quite a bit. It was fun to see you two in "familiar" places.

    I like the new blog pictures!

  2. Happy Anniversary :) What cute pics and fun song! The post almost sounds like a movie preview.

  3. I love you guys.That song was played at your wedding I think i had to slip the CD with a twenty to the D.J. because he was under strict orders from dad to stick to the play list. Happy Aniversary

  4. Happy Happy Happy Anniversary. You two are an inspiration.

    Beautiful song - I think I'll send it to my man, who I hardly ever see now that we have the two rugrats.

  5. Happy Anniversary!

    How fantastic to have met as maid of honor & best man. That is the stuff movies are made from. Your wedding photo is beautiful.

    Are you guys busy Sunday?? We were thinking of having a little BBQ here at our place. We can toast to marriage... (12 years of bliss for us as of 9-14).

  6. Would you EVEN believe me if I told you that last night I had a CRAZY dream that I was getting married and you and Steven were there? I don't remember it all, but it was really weird.
    I love that picture of you two on the truck. And I love knowing there are couples like you...Truly inspirational!

  7. Feliz Aniversario! Love the pics of you and Steven. Hope you have a beautiful anniversary and can find strength to celebrate the joy. Glad you share yourselves with us through your blog, I love to read it.
