Ten Years Married


Ten years ago Danny and I tied the knot in an apple orchard with about 120 friends and family looking on. We were young, just 23, full of hopes and plans for the future.

The years since have blessed us with far more that we could have ever dreamed -three healthy children, a little urban farm, careers that we enjoy, and most of all, a love for each other that grows stronger by the day.


On Saturday (our actual anniversary) we returned to the very same orchard with our three little ones in tow. We picnicked on the grass, played tag among the trees, and reminisced over our wedding day.

Later that evening, Danny and I slipped away without the kids for a dinner on the town where we sipped champagne, slurped a dozen oysters, and speculated on what the next ten years might possibly hold. Good things, we are sure of that.

Here are a few iPhone photos from the day.











Clara gave us the very best anniversary present ever - she slept through the whole night in her own bed. This was the morning after, when she was all smiles.
We all were.

PSST! In honour of my 10th wedding anniversary, I'm giving away a KitchenAid 7 Qt Bowl Lift Commercial Stand Mixer valued at $900. Head on over to Simple Bites to enter and good luck!

(Giveaway is sponsored by KitchenAid USA and only open to US residents.)

Congratulations on 10 yrs!! Looks like a wonderful way to celebrate! Love your picnic choices....the word picnic is on my mind these days. I hope it's a summer full of picnics!

Aw, happy anniversary! May long weekend was ours too - not our wedding, but getting together for our first date back in -gasp- 1988. Wow. May the next 10 be just as spectacular for you!

What a lovely way to celebrate 10 wonderful years of marriage! And so sweet of Clara to give you both the gift of a full night's sleep as well! Congratulations, Aimee and Danny, and cheers!

Check the dimensions and know exactly how much space it will take up. This is very important if you live in a smaller home or an apartment.
