Happy Anneversary!!!

To ME!!! Today is my anneversary!! Larry and I have been married for 13 years today!! And oddly enough the day was very similar to today weather wise here in PA! Overcast and threatening rain!!! It actually did rain in the afternoon!!! I am still in love more than ever than the day I got married. And I would do it all again in a minute. In fact in April when we were in Mexico we renewed our vowes with our team right on the street. That was cool. SO I actually do have 2 wedding rings!!!
