Happy 7th Anniversary to Us!

7 years ago today, my husband and I became my husband and I!

And anyone who knows me in real life has seen these next pictures — I love them, to say the least.  My husband and I went to Italy on our honeymoon and couldn’t have asked for a better almost-2-weeks.  We started in Rome and received a Papal blessing — truly a blessing for us and for our marriage.

In the taxi-cab in Rome.

Funny story:  We arrived at our small quaint hotel in Rome on Sunday.  The papal blessing wasn’t until Wednesday morning.  To say the front desk was in SHOCK when we came down Wednesday morning in our full wedding attire would be a complete understatement!  We scored a free bottle of wine when we returned!

Awww, isn’t he handsome?

This picture was taken by another Texas couple who happened to walk in at the exact same time as us.  The couple behind us were Italian.

After this day of traipsing about the Vatican in our wedding attire, we  packaged the wedding gown back up and sent it on its way back home.  I was sad to see it go — I could just imagine pictures all over Italy in my wedding gown.   Wouldn’t that be awesome?!?  but dang, it was big, and there was no way we could carry it everywhere, especially since we already overpacked!

One of my husband’s comments afterward? “He smelled like soap!”  It was true.  He did smell like soap!

And the highlight of the trip – the Papal Blessing from Pope John Paul II.  I don’t think we really believed it would happen until, well, it did.  Beautiful day and so special for these two Catholics.
