today is an anniversary

I've been married to my best friend for 6 years today! It feels much longer than just 6 years, but in a good way. I'd like to think it's because we've fit so much into the past 6 years. :)

and you want to know a secret???

When Peter and I got married, we decided in 10 years we'd renew our vows and have a big wedding/reception closer to home. Last year we chose the perfect place in Sedona, right along a winding creek under a canopy of old oak trees.

So, I've been carefully planning my dream wedding and have been saving ideas for the past years, getting ready for the big event. In light of recent events, I started wondering why should we wait? Why not start planning a big celebration whenever we feel like it? Of course, it would still take me at least a year of planning and organizing but I love the idea of marrying my best friend all over again!

I also decided to finally start that mini I had been wanting to do for so long! Alaina has been asking all sorts of questions lately; how did you and daddy meet?, did you meet in Hawaii?, where did you get married? It seems this is the perfect time to be writing down all of those stories!

I'm going with a 6x6 size. Just something small and cute. I'll fill it with envelopes of all the little notes and cards Peter and have sent each other. Along with the photos and a few scrapbook pages. This should keep be busy for the next few weeks!

I'll be back tomorrow to post the Saturday Color Combo! Happy Friday!

Happy anniversary Tara to you and your hubby. My anniversay was the 8th. 13 years with my best friend! We eloped to Vegas! Got married in the Chapel of Love. It was cheap looking! There with plastic flowers, stain glass windows, the cost was $60.00 and it couldn't have been more perfect! I remember it like it was yesterday. It will be so nice for your kids to see their parents renew their vows. What a wonderful idea.
FYI...love the mini book so far!!!

Happy anniversary to you both. My husband and I renewed our vows on our 25th (2 years ago), and it was lovely. I'm so glad I did, as all my 5 kiddos celebrated with us. Don't wait as long as I did, do it soon. Have a happy and blessed day.

Happy Anniversary - I think it is a fantastic idea. I love the idea of renewing vows and sharing another day like that again.
