11 Years of Blessed Love

Thank you, Universe, for these 11 years of love, dedication, and friendship!
The photograph above is from the first summer of love that Ramon and I shared.
We could have only guessed and hoped back then that we would be together for a long, long time.
I lived in America, he lived in Austria.
We were oceans apart.
But here we are, eleven years later, living in our home of comfort and laughter, with our playful cavalier Kiki, and parents to our dear angel baby Blueberry in heaven.
So many things have happened, we've learned and changed and grown.
I love who I am in the eyes of my husband.
And of course, I love him!
Happy 11th Anniversary, Sweet Husband!

Brittan Butterfly, you are the lucky winner of the four leaf clover!

  1. happy 11 years Dawn and Ramon. I am kind of curious to know, is Austria Ramon's home country? How did you guys meet? Maybe these are questions that you'll answer in another post.
    Thinking of you on this special day.
    That photo of your two is just so sweet.

  2. Congregations darling Dawn and Ramon, may you be blessed for many years to come. I love the old photograph, you both look as beautiful and in love as you do now.
    I hope you have fun celebrating these 11 glorious years
    Lots of love

  3. wow- 11 years! congratulations!!! that's so wonderful. happy anniversary Dawn & Ramon!!

    :) Cheers to the two of you on this special day!!!!

  4. Ramon was born and raised in the small Austrian town where we live now. My parents come from Austria and were best friends with his fact, our fathers were in a band together for many years. When my parents got pregnant, they decided to move to America. But we visited Ramon's family once in a while, so I've known Ramon all my life. When I was 18, 11 years ago, we came to visit, and that's when sparks flew! First we had a long distance relationship, but eventually he was able to convince me to join him in Austria.
    The story is of course much more complicated than that, but that's the short version! LOL

  5. Beautiful, beautiful! So many congratulations to you both! I LOVE love! It truly makes the world go round, and everything so much easier! Thanks too for your sweet comment on my latest post - I didn't know how honest to be, but I think (like you I suspect) that there's no point in it unless you reveal at least something of your true self. And if you let people in, they seldom let you down I find. Enjoy your special, special day. With much love, Rachel xoxo
