Six Years

Today is our sixth wedding anniversary. John surprised me and and took us to a bed and breakfast in Georgetown. It was romantic and we had a great time roaming around the Inn built in 1863 and around the cute little town.
This is John and I dancing our first dance, as you can see we were so happy, I think we laughed through the whole thing.
This was shortly after our wedding on a trip we took to the Philippines. We are underneath a waterfall in this photo.
This is us on our honeymoon in Maui. We spent 2 whole weeks there. We did everything we could there and had a blast, we still talk about it all the time.

Facts about John and I.
- He proposed to me in French, on a canoe in the middle of Donner lake.
- Neither of us speak French, but he knew I loved the sound of the language, so he walked around for a week listening to a recording of a proposal a friend of ours made into a tape recorder for him so he could propose to me in French.
- He was visibly shaking when he proposed to me, and I thought that was the sweetest thing.
- That night he left me a dozen red roses with a note attached that said "Heather, sleep well my love. I look forward to spending the rest of my life with you."
- John and I met, dated, and were engaged all within a year and a half.
- I believe that he and I are soul mates. There is no one else out there that would be more perfect for me than John.

Can't believe I've spent 40 years in No. Calif. and never heard of Georgetown. :) John's proposal in quickly-learned French?...one of the sweetest things I've ever heard. Here's to many, many more years together. Happy Anniversary!
