15 Years ago today

at the tender young age of 22, I married my first love.

Back then I thought I knew it all, and had life figured out, like most other people. We had a beautiful Wedding day, the weather was perfect, a huge Italian/Greek Wedding. We were married in an Orthodox Church and the Reception was at my parents Reception Centre at the time Angelucci's Receptions. I have wonderful memories of that day. Before we were married my sister in law showed me a verse, which I can say that 15 years down the track has been tested time and time again to the very core. To be honest 15 years down and 3 kids and I am still mastering most of these attributes. A work in progess. LOL

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.

Sharing your life with someone can have highs and lows, remembering what brought you together in the first place and trying not to let everyday stresses and pressures get the best of you. Being open and honest, loving and considerate, "unconditional love" the kind our kids and pets give us, they love us no matter what they don't waste energy holding grudges.

Making quality time for each other is so important I think it is the backbone of a good relationship, especially when its all to easy to concentrate on the kids all the time.

When I think back that it was 15 yrs ago, wow where did the time go? And why don't I look young, skinny and carefree like that anymore????

I had to take photos of my photos as there was no digital back then. Even just getting the albums out floods back so many memories of what was going through my head at each moment of that day. Its like the saying goes "we don't remember days we remember moments!"

Well I have had my little trip down memory lane and if you have read to this point without getting bored well done. It's time to get back into the present and make more beautiful memories and moments to continue to cherish and look back on years to come.
