7 Wonderful Years

Today is my 7 year wedding anniversary to Simon. We celebrated on Saturday, to take advantage of a free day and babysitters! I didn't know what we were doing for the day, so it was all a complete surprise to me. Simon started by driving me to this random place in Devon and we started walking through the countryside. I was waiting to see a castle or something of the sort and when we came to a marshy estuary he asked me if I had any ideas and I told him that it sort of looked like something out of the movie Sense and Sensibility. I was right, and for anyone who knows me you know how excited I would be because it is my ultimate, all time favourite movie and the scenery in the movie is so beautiful. It was so cool!

We then went to an island off the Devon coast called Burgh Island and had dinner at a 14th Century Inn. It was like something straight out of Pirates of the Caribbean. The food was amazing, though. It actually came from some posh hotel on the island.




All in all, I had a fantastic time and the past 7 years with Simon have been the happiest years of my life! Oh l'amour!

Jaime, congratulations on 7 wonderful years. You're as photogenic as ever! I can't believe you actually went to the film location for S&S. I'm so glad it's still your favorite movie. I made Derrick watch it with me and he just didn't appreciate it as much as he should have. Shame on him! I'm so glad I can keep up with your beautiful family this way.

Happy Anniversary! Your pictures made me tell Rob that we really need to get back to England as soon as possible. That was the best trip ever(all but the Sept. 11 episode). My first and so far only time out of America. A lot of first time experiences on that trip it was great. Anyways it looks like you guys had a great time.

Ah, Simon is such a romantic! That is a really a cute way to spend your anniversary!Congrats on reaching the 7 year mark! We also had our 7 year one this year, but we went out to dinner and then walked around K-mart for a while. NOT romantic at all!!! Ah well...at least we didn't have the kiddies along so it was good after all! Anyway, glad you had a nice time!
