    Congratulations! We are celebrating our 11th wedding anniversary this week…. which now begs the question about why I am not off somewhere vacationing with my Renovator Ron!

    ahhh…. someday…. when we have this place all spiffed up!

    That’s pretty much perfection there, missy. Happy anniversary!

    One a completely different note, I just got back from New Orleans where I was salivating over the abundance of ELEGANCY…chandeliers that made my eyes swell with tears just from their dizzying crystalline beauty. Of course, my raccoon and I went rabid, thought of you and screamed, Victoria NEEDS ALL this!!!

    Well, even though I’ve never met you or Paul, I still feel pretty sure that I love you two. Any man that would/could dance that well with his wife on the back patio is sure to get my admiration. Happy anniversary.

    Um, is this the house you and Paul looked at and decided agains? The porch looks very similar

      It’s not, (although you’re right the porch looks nearly identical.) I sort of wish you hadn’t pointed me to this, because I am now deeply sad that is not my house… it’s amazing!!! (And was cheap, at least initially.)

    Your dance video is so dreamy, elegant, and princess-like. I was amazed when I recently looked at the wedding photos you posted. Spectacular! How fitting for the gal who owns the kingdom mirror! It is exciting to see how blessed you and Paul are. I can’t wait to see what else you do. Happy anniversary!

    Last night we celebrated my in-laws 65th anniversary! Wishing you and Paul that many years of love and laughter together. I think you have the laughter part down pretty well.

    Congrats, very nifty post, and excellent commemorative video! Thanks for the smiles and I must commend you on your excellent taste in men! (And he looks good in a Tux AND in Shorts!)
    I think Paul chose wisely too. 😉

    Congratulations on 9 years of wedded bliss(?)!! I know EXACTLY how you feel about your marriage – I’ve spent the last 30 years feeling like this!!! (And I think Paul got the best of this bargain!)

    Aww, you both are so happy! I love your wedding video and the recent dance in the backyard. What a great moment to have on film. Congratulations on surviving the first years and best wishes for many more to come. A sense of humor goes a long way to ensuring a happy marriage and you both seem to have that.

    The Astaire touch is definitely in the graceful arm at the very end of the back patio turn. Congratulations on your anniversary – may you have many, many more.

    I’m a bit late to the party, but I just had to comment on this post. Your wedding dance was absolutely breath taking, and yet what really made the entire post so beautiful was your joyful and beautiful wedding dance reprise. My daughter is engaged, and plans a small wedding, but I believe this will be very inspiring to her!

    Just so breathtakingly beautiful!

    Happy Anniversary! I wish there was a blog of your wedding planning. I can only imagine the level of obsession over every detail. Clearly it was worth it, you had a beautiful wedding. I have no doubt Paul adores you and all your quirks.
