    I could SO write this post about my husband and I. Disappointed I didn’t get to meet you at Haven this year… I SO hope for next year…

    Best Wishes for many, MANY more happy (and hoarding) years!

      I am FOR SURE going next year… reading all the wrap-up posts killed me with envy. Like being forced to sit in the corner while everyone else went to the best party ever.

    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY – I quite thought for a moment you were talking about Hero Husband and me…. 🙂 Same story here – sometimes I wonder why I love him so incredibly much, as 99.99% seem to pass unheard and unnoticed – then I realise usually within 20″ that He is truly the Best Thing that happened to me in my Whole Life 🙂
    Shall now take a pause to watch your wedding video – my special treat! I am SO happy to have found you and can rely (relay? – sorry, don’t know enough English) to nearly 100% of what you tell us… Much love, Kiki

    Happy anniversary, you guys! We’re only a little ahead of you on the anniversaries timeline, and far less accomplished on the dance floor; may your year ahead be the best so far, but only half as good as those to come!

    Even those stairs look good when you dance in front of them and then dip! Maybe that’s the solution?

    This might be the most beautiful wedding venue and bride and groom I’ve ever seen. Exquisite! And your post is a spot-on summation of marriage, as I know it. Congratulations on nine years of what wedded bliss ACTUALLY is – love and getting the other’s *$#+ out of our proverbial garages!

    Oh my, what a wonderful post to wake up to Victoria!

    Congratulations.

    I sent Dan your post today and said “Watch the video too. This is how I want us to be”. There are so many similarities and yet the one thing I aspire to have as a couple that you do have is the comfort to say things like” 9 years of wondering if he listens to a word I say” & “Dear Hoarder Victoria, Get your shit out of my garage! Love, Paul”
    It is a great gift to be this trusting with each other and in the midst of a renovation (which we are doing too) even more important to find the levity in as much as possible.
    Thanks so much!
    I hope you celebrate in style.

    Happiest of Anniversaries filled with time….moments of cherished time to reignite the spark and refuel the fire that it may burn within you both and light your way to walk together for a lifetime. If that is too intense…then Ya’ll Have Fun!

    Wow beautiful photos and videos. I’m assuming a professional photographer/videographer? Just stunning. And pretty cute the updated video too.

    I hope you are having a glorious vacation with your charming and talented husband. What a great tribute to Paul. Wear sunscreen and have fun. I can’t wait to hear the account of you without a kitchen…doing dishes in the bathroom, microwave everything, you’ll tell it like no other.
    xo,
