The 7 Year Itch?

...well not exactly, but today John and I are celebrating our seven year anniversary! Yahoo! Let me clarify that in NO way do I have the "seven year itch". We are so much in love and it grows more and more each year. I especially love seeing him with our children. He is just head over heels about HIS girls! He is an amazing Daddy.

So, to commemerate our anniversary I thought I would share our engagement/wedding story...

I met John in 1996 through a mutual friend on my women's soccer team in Dallas, TX. After going through a dangerous breakup with my boyfriend at the time - John was there for the rescue!! How could I not fall in love in with my Knight in Shining Armor? I'll spare you all the horrid details about the break up, but what John says now, "I was just waiting for the right time to make my move". We still joke about it today!

After dating for just over a year John proposed to me on Valentine's Day in 1998 in New York, New York on a carriage ride through Central Park.

On May 15, 1999 just over a year later we got married in Las Vegas at the New York, New York Hotel and Casino. Do you see the coincidence here? (And no, Elvis was not at the wedding!) He ended the day with a surprise Valentine dinner at Palio's on 51st in downtown NY. Below is a picture of the scrapbook page I made when we got back. I have been a scrapper since high school and I made this scrapbook during the first year we were dating. You can tell by the photo that this was before Creative Memories and all the fun stuff became popular.

If you can see the picture on the left-hand side of the page - this is the picture right after he proposed...I was in tears! It's been wonderful ever since. I love you John, you are the love of my life! Happy Anniversary!

Aaah. I've always thought a carriage ride in CP would be my favorite way to do a proposal!
