The Power of Two

"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."
-Emily Bronte

Today Antonello and I celebrated our two year wedding anniversary. Yes, May 8th was the date we had our first wedding--the small civil ceremony here in Macerata. It's the date we celebrate, of all three weddings, because, frankly, it's the only one we've had a chance to celebrate: the other two happened less than a year ago. Still, I think we'll keep celebrating it just the same. It's the day we were legally married, and the day we started our life together, as marito e moglie.

Last night we celebrated by going out to dinner at our favorite little restaurant: Il Pozzo. We feasted on crescia with vegetables and pizza, and we met a couple friends out afterwards to get gelato. Today, we exchanged gifts (I got a cordless phone! He got a porcupine whistle and a Bruce Springsteen CD!) and ate enchiladas. These past few months have been crazy and tough, and even today we didn't really get much time together, but we'll find more time to celebrate--maybe take an anniversary weekend away--later.

I'm just amazed that it's been two years already. Two years of marriage! We are lucky--the two of us--to have each other, to have had two years of happy marriage, and to know that more years of happiness are on their way. Here are some photos from May 8th two years ago, our wedding day.

Happy Anniversary, Antonello. Thank you for making these last two years so special! Ti amo!

I LOVE the look on your face with the orange tie! Say, where DID that tie go? Gee, if you don't find it we might just have to buy you guys a new one!

Tanti tanti auguri Yeki e Antonello! Wishing you many more years of happiness!
Love,
Danilo and Cyn

thanks for all of the 'auguri's everyone! I'm glad you like the pictures--Antonello and I looked through them last night to decide which ones to put online, and we both love the one of him in the tie :). There are actually quite a few like that: me looking completely desperate, and him smiling really big in that goofy orange tie. aack!
