14 Years!

Filed under: Personal,Photography,Portraits — chantal @ 10:14 am

Today is my 14th Wedding anniversary! 14 years ago I married the man of my dreams, my Prince Charming. I can’t believe how quickly the time has passed! I guess it’s true that time flies when you’re having fun. I can’t imagine what my life would have been without Shamon in it. He has made all of my dreams come true, and as quick as I can dream up new ones, he’s right there to make them happen!

I’m happy today, knowing that the man I have spent my entire adult life with is also be the man who will be pushing me in a wheel chair when I’m an old lady (or vice versa if he keeps playing basketball on that bad knee!!). But I’m sad that I can’t be with him today. At least I have a lifetime of memories to fill my heart, and three beautiful children who represent the best of him and I together.

Happy Anniversary Shamon, I LOVE YOU!! xoxoxooxoxoxoox

Below is a photo of Shamon playing his saxophone. He began playing saxophone when he was just a kid, and played all through high school. Once he graduated, he put his sax down, but his love and passion for music only grew stronger. I always knew he was meant to be a musician, and I was so happy that he decided to pick up his old sax again and relearn his first love. But he didn’t play like someone who hadn’t touched the instrument in nearly 17 years…he’s SO GOOD! The melodies that came from that horn after only hours of playing for the first time in nearly two decades were astonishing. And after a year of practicing while in Iraq, I expect a full serenade when he comes home again, days before our 15th anniversary 🙂



  1. A hearty congratulations on 14 years. He is a very handsome man.

    I’m guessing he’s in Iraq now? I will pray for him and his safety.

    My son is about to come home from Iraq any day now after nearly 15 months.
