Celebrating Us

Twelve years ago I stood in a little chapel in Malibu, recited vows we wrote ourselves, and said "I do" to a wonderful man.



Tonight I'm on the other side of that Pacific Ocean, enjoying dinner at Cafe Sydney, and thanking God for this man and the beautiful life we have made together.



In the dozen years between then and now we bought a house, got a dog, got a promotion, had a baby, quit a job, had another baby, sold the house, bought another, remodeled it, . . . . and moved to the other side of the world.

I couldn't have predicted our life together would have taken this turn, but I'm glad it did. I've learned to take a risk, try something new, explore the unknown. It's that curve in the road that makes life interesting. Here's to many more adventures together.
Happy Anniversary. I love you.

Wish I had something witty to say, but all I can think of is awwwww. But seriously, you looked beautiful on your wedding day, (Have I never seen that picture in your house before???) and look just as pretty today. Tom's a lucky guy.

Hi Jenny. I recently started reading your blog as my husband and I, along with our two children, are planning a vacation in Sydney for a month at Christmas time. Did you happen to go to Pepperdine? I went there and it looks like perhaps you got married at the Pepp chapel? I am really enjoying your blog and am looking at it in part to get ideas for what we should do when there (our kids are 5 and 3). I'm also researching a home or apartment to rent. If you have any ideas, could you please email me? Thanks so much. And thanks for all the fun content on your blog!

Teresa, I sent you an email. You will love Sydney!
