Today, we are celebrating our fifth wedding anniversary. It feels good to reminisce the day we got married ... it was also a Sunday, Dec. 14, 2003. The weather was quite the same as today, I remember waking up to the cold breeze on my room that day at Evercrest Hotel. I tried eating my breakfast with my brother but I couldn't chew and swallow my food. I don't know what was I feeling then.
The day passed so quickly, I remember walking the down the aisle ... crying as I see my dad wiped his tears. I think I cried a bucket that day. Now I laugh at myself, remembering how my guests wiped their tears too while I cried hehehe.
Jeff and I haven't been back to Caleruega since we got married there. It's my wish to go back anytime soon, atleast before Christmas. I want to bring Ethan with us so he could see where it all started ...
I don't think there's something extraordinary today, only, we're 5 years stronger together. Last year, we spent our anniversary working - him the photographer while I was busy manning the chocolate fountain. Today, he went to cover another party. Later this afternoon, we're off to Anika's bday party where he will be the photographer again together with his partner, Meng. Sigh! I'll bring Ethan along as we're both invited too. That's the least we could do, be together in one place for this day.
Last night, he was out for another coverage while Ethan and I stayed at home. At midnight, I received a text message from him, greeting me, "happy anniversary". I wanted him to come home sooner but he was still working. I fell asleep waiting. By past 3 in the morning, I heard Jeff's voice calling me. He was finally home and with him is a bouquet of flowers! : )
The day isn't over yet. I don't know if Jeff has plans for tonight. Alhough I'm sure he's exhausted already. He hardly slept last night. Poor guy! He's really hardworking ... always. Jeff works even on holidays and Sundays, but he doesn't complain, only he whines. Joke! ; )
I feel so blessed I married him, my one true love ... Happy Anniversary, Jeff! I love you!
