10 Years Ago Today ...

I went from being engaged...

and from being Stephanie Harris
under the care of my mother ...
and father...
to being married to Jonathan Waite. 
I became Stephanie Waite.
How grateful I am for the love and care this wonderful man has given to me over the last 10 years. Over the years my love for him has grown and deepened. The last year has taken this growth and deepening to an entirely new dimension. I don't know how I could have or still would make it through this without his love and understanding.
And for all the sorrow we have seen together, 
I am so glad that, even 10 years later, 
he still makes me feel like this ...
Happy 10 year Anniversary Love!

10ème Anniversaire heureux, mes chers amis!

Life is so much richer when you have an ever deepening love for each other. I can so identify with how loves takes deeper roots over time. Having Ray by my side with his unfailing love, committment and support is truly my Godsend. Someday, I would love to share "our story" with you and I have no doubt you'll agree.

All of these pictures are truly awesome Stephanie but you are absolutely stunning in the one with your mother.

I remember back to a post where years ago you opined jokingly that you & Jon would have funny looking kids.

I have 2 points to make on that:

1.) Why in the world would you ever think that - you are a beautiful/handsome couple. Who knew that Jon has such nice "full" blonde hair? [snicker]

2.) The proof is in the pudding. The Waite family makes bee-oot-tee-ful babies!

Have a great day!

love 'n hugs,
kathryn_m

I had a dream about you last night. I was your house cleaner and was cleaning your house and you were putting up square pieces of purple carpet all over the nursery walls...strange.

Happy anniversary!

This is off topic, but the Church's "Mormon Messages" site on YouTube is trying to spread their "Why Mormons Build Temples" clip. I know your blog draws mormons and non-mormons as readers and thought you might be interested in posting a link.
