Anita My Sweet-a

I don’t talk about my wife Anita all that much here in this little patch of sunshine, but make no mistake, she is my world.

She’s my best friend, my trusty companion, my funny valentine.

She is the light of my day and the love of my life.

We’ve made memories and mistakes, we’ve made a family and a future.

We’ve made beautiful babies that turned into bright young girls that turned into strong and funny and freakishly creative young women.

We’ve had ups, downs and all-arounds, but we’re still here… still side-by-side, still laughing and living and loving together.

And today marks our 25th wedding anniversary.

In a couple of months, I’ll be taking her to Italy to celebrate in style, but for now… today… I’ll just say “I love you, and thanks for putting up with all my Sh*t.”

  18. Happy Anniversary! I have to tell you, my two weeks in Italy was the only vacation I've ever taken where I ate everything in sight and drank as much as I wanted to and still came home with a 6# loss. Of course, we walked everywhere, but I'm pretty certain I never missed a gelato shop :)

  22. Happy anniversary! What part of Italy are you going to? I studied for a month near Venice and loved it! I went to Venice, Milan, Paris, Munch, Nice, and Monte Carlo while I was over there; was just thinking how I need to go back - it's already been 7 yrs since I was last there!
