Photo Poem: The First Thing I Notice


♥ Remembering my first thoughts when I received this photo on 9 June, 1999 ♥
♥ Dedicated to my wonderful, loving husband Mohamed ♥
♥ On our ♥
♥ 29 July, 2014 ♥

Fifteen years is not a really long time,
Though sometimes it feels like forever –
Sometimes it feels like we have lived
Three lifetimes together
But I’ll gladly take 15 more –
I’m not ready to retire
Just because I’m breathing heavy
Doesn’t mean I’m tired!


This is one of my favorite photos! It was taken by my awesome brother Jim’s awesome wife Corrine!

  3. What a beautiful poem (both the anniversary one and the photo one)! I love your word choice and the picture you paint of your husband; from the poem alone, I feel so much love directed towards your husband, even though it’s never explicitly stated. The subtleness makes it more powerful.
    The photo of you and your husband is adorable. Congratulations on your 15th Anniversary! I wish you many more happy ones. ❤
