Twenty Years Ago Today...

... Daniel and I said "I do" in a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony in sunny California. How young we were!
Definitely older now, but oh so happy together!

Because we also got married in Germany one month later, the only one present at our wedding in California from my family was my sweet sister, Caroline. And so, from my side of the family, she's the only one who really knows what this day was like for us!

She was even there for my bridal shower.
I think that shower was a first for both of us, Caro, wasn't it? Daniel's wonderful sisters planned it all! So much fun!

I will see you all again tomorrow! Today, I will be celebrating with my honey!

  11. Happy Anniversary Silke - you too looked happy then and you certainly look happy now. You are one of the few couples I "know" (virtually) that seem to truly enjoy one another.

    (You look so angelic with your long hair opening your gift.)

    Alles Gute,
    Doris :-)
