Our first official family photo.
A year sure goes by fast. For our first anniversary, Kathy and I went to Monterey. Kathy had never been to the aquarium there, and I barely remembered my trip as a child many years ago. Our timing was perfect — Cannery row was relatively uncrowded and we got upgraded to an awesome hotel suite with an ocean view.
The aquarium was even bigger than I remembered it, and they had some really creative exhibits. Some of the tanks were several floors tall!
Overall, it was a very romantic and relaxing weekend. Happy anniversary, Kathy!
Valentine’s Day is twice as special for us because it is also the anniversary of when we started dating.
Ten years ago in 2001, Jon’s dad picked us up after school and dropped us off in old town Monrovia to watch Save The Last Dance. (Neither of us had our drivers’ license yet.) This year is even more special because it marks our 10th anniversary!
We try our best to celebrate the occasion each year. One year Kathy taped paper hearts all over Jon’s car. Another year Jon cooked a fantastic meal for Kathy. (Jon doesn’t cook, so it was a big deal.)
By far, the best year was 2007 when Jon proposed!
This year we spent the day in downtown LA picking our wedding rings!
“Well I was crazy about you then
And now the craziest thing of all
Over 10 years have gone by
And you’re still mine
We’re locked in time”
