Nineteen Years Today

November 1st.

19 years ago on Grand Cayman Island, Jerry and I got married in a church that my great-great grandfather help found.

We spent a wonderful week there doing, well, just what newlyweds do. And we also enjoyed the Caribbean more than I could ever express here. When I close my eyes, I can imagine hearing the constancy of the surf. It was so relaxing and peaceful.

We snorkled and swam and did a lot of lounging.

Today, we had a really nice lunch together and wondered where 19 years went. It doesn't seem that long ago that we were standing in that VERY hot church waiting for the minister to be ready. Later that night, we went to an extremely nice restaurant built over the sea and once the dock light came on, tarpon would swim up to be fed.

Afterwards, we went back to the hotel, changed into our casual clothes and went to Pirate's Week festivities at West Bay, which is where my grandfather was born and grew up. We ran into a lot of cousins and had big fun.

We're happy to say we love each other more now than then.

Here's hoping a lasting love for all who read this post.
