Ani L'Dodi V'Dodi Li ... I Am My Beloved's, And My Beloved Is Mine

Ten years ago today we said those words to each other.

In front of 200 people dressed in their best formal wear.


Ten years ago today he promised me an exciting life together.

He pledged an adventure.

He told me he'd take me to far away places.

He swore we'd never be bored.


A decade later and I'd say he's pretty much been true to his word.


I am a very lucky lady to have traveled all over the world, lived overseas in interesting places, been blessed with three beautiful children, established deep rooted friendships, and given the opportunity to live a life I never thought imaginable.


To my parents, I love you and am so thankful to have such a close relationship with you.

To my in-laws, I love you and am so thankful to have such a close relationship with you.

And to my darling husband, I love you and am so amazingly blessed to have you in my life.

Ani L'Dodi V'Dodi Li. Here's to the next decade together.



Here are a few video clips from our wedding. The first one is of the processional... a favorite of the girls. They love seeing their grandparents, great grandparents, uncles, cousins, and friends... Of course, they really get mesmerized seeing mommy in her "princess" gown and daddy with the "hat thingy" on his head. Yeah, yeah... we need to get them in Sunday School.

The second clip is a montage of photos of us growing up... and then video footage of our photo shoot before the wedding.

HAPPY ANIVERSARY!! I cried during the videos, it was so beautiful and touching. One question, what was the laughter about when you circled Matt seven times? I am speculating that maybe someone lost count : )Thanks for sharing it with us. I was married on February 19th, 2000. I can't believe it has been ten years, truly a blessing : )
Congratulations and I hope you have a special night just the two of you~

Happy Anniversary!

(In India, if you were an Indian couple, we would say "Sympathies to Matt!" It's just an old Indian joke!)
