Happy Anniversary to Us!!

Today is my anniversary - and it's Ed's too!! Ten years ago today we met for the first time at a Starbucks in Milpitas after meeting on Match.com. I did a 3-part blog about this meeting two years ago.

On October 5th 2001 he proposed to me at a restaurant in Sausalito. Just as I said yes and we both wiped our tears, Barry Bonds hit a home run and the Giants stadium lit up with fireworks. Right outside the window of the restaurant. Pretty cool.

Then on October 5th 2002 we got married. Surrounded by our children and parents. Have you noticed a pattern? We decided at our age it was much easier to just remember one "Ed and Sandi" date so October 5th it is. Which means today is actually our 10/8/7 anniversary.

Since we've been together three of our combined 5 children have gotten married, and our number of grandchildren has grown from 2 to 13! Life is good.

So Happy Anniversary, Ed! It's been a great 10 years and I look forward to many more. As I told Ed once - we've been together for 10 years and I still like him! Sure couldn't say that with the first two husbands.
