{twenty}



Twenty years ago I married my best friend and soul mate...we lived in the SF bay area at the time and were married in a small ceremony by a justice of the peace. We each had prior marriages (him for 2 years and me for 5 years). I had my son Nick with my ex. Dan happily took on an 'instant family' and life went on. 20 years later I can say that what we have experienced has been awesome. We have moved quite a few times, traveled, raised children (and still are), laughed, loved and cried. It has been 20 years full of fun and life. I can't remember being bored or regretting anything along the way. There have been challenges- it is life after all- but nothing that ever made me want to share this road with anyone else. We have another 30 -40 years left and I'm looking forward to it. So tonight we'll raise a glass of wine or champagne to celebrate 20 years together and wish for continued happiness for the rest of our journey. Thank you Dan for taking a leap of faith with me and Nick and... Happy Anniversary! xo
