Happy 16th Wedding Anniversary

Hello lovely friends in blogland,

Today my hubby and I, are celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary. We met during our senior year in High School. We didn't attend school together, he went to an all boys catholic high school (Cardinal Hayes), and I went to an all girls catholic high school (Mother Cabrini). But as fate would have it, we met because of a ball going over a parking lot fence!. My brother and Vincent used to play with other kids from the neighborhood on this parking lot in front of our building in NYC. One day, I was coming home from a part time job, and the boys were playing baseball. Just as I was passing by, somebody hit the ball out of the lot and I went and got it. Being the tomboy I was, I threw the ball back with all I had. Needless to say, Vince noticed me. I happened to stop to say hello to my brother who was by the fence. After I proceeded on my way home, Vince asked my brother if he knew that girl. My brother said " sure I know her, she's my sister!". Lo and behold, after that Mr. Vincent would try to find any excuse to visit my brother at our apartment. Little by little, we started talking and YADA, YADA,YADA, here we are 26 years later: 16 years married and three cutie pies!


This photo was taken the day of my graduation, we went to dinner with my family to celebrate.

We've had happy times, sad times. We've had laughter, and tears. We had a miscarriage ( a little angel in heaven), but through it all, we've been together. May we continue this way for the rest of our lives.
I LOVE YOU, VINCENT, WITH ALL MY HEART!
Happy Anniversary to us!!

Thank you for sharing this special occasion!
Take care and enjoy your loved ones.
Hugs,
Rosa
