This weekend I celebrated a special day with my hubby and best friend of 21 years. We been together for a long time knowing each other for 29 years.
Starting out long distance while I was in New York and he was in New Orleans. Being on the road working did not hurt us it actually made our relationship so much stronger.
Even now with my health he has been there never saying “I Didn’t Sign Up For This” cuz it’s one thing saying vows for sickness and in health but to actually really mean it is another. If you have never had to care for someone with 3 auto immune diseases, know it’s not easy. At one point he would have to feed me, bath me, dress me, and so much more. Even now we still have some bad days especially during the winter time. He’s been there through it all. So, I can really say, I’m a lucky girl.
It was nice that Michael took the weekend off, if you think I’m a workaholic he’s worst.
So three days of just us was so overdue. No work and no adult kids.
Our stay at The Marriott Stamford was close to home but it was a quick getaway from the house. Of course his staff called him 3-5 times a day but I couldn’t complain and wouldn’t complain.
For lunch we went to Northern Lights Bar and Lounge, a premier spot located in Downtown Stamford. It had a sexiness to it during the day so I’m sure at night it’s a nice spot.
On our wedding day we both wore BVLGARI fragrances so on our anniversary we shower in BVLGARI, we wear BVLGARI lotion and perfume. 21 years its time to replenish for the next decade because we have a few drops left.
For dinner we went to Saltaire Oyster Bar and Fish House in Port Chester, NY. I love seafood and I can never seem to find that perfect location yet. So we are trying this spot out for the first time.
The next day we had brunch at Sam’s American Bistro which had a very casual atmosphere and the food style was American. The rest of the day we just relaxed put the phones up, talked about our updated future goals and just watch the sun set while enjoing Rose’ and jumbo boiled shrimp.
I’m no expert here but I have learned a few things about marriage since becoming a wifey in 2012. Like many things, I probably wasn’t the best at it at first – I still have my shortcomings but let’s be honest I’m practically perfect at it now LOL. Learning from some great couples around us and really stepping back and looking at the whole picture has helped me gain a lot of perspective on what it takes to build a marriage. It’s definitely not easy – it’s constant work, work from both sides. And for us we’ve had time to just grow together because we haven’t expanded the family just yet (Oh that will be a learning curve! A welcomed learning curve ).
So with Valentine’s Day two weeks away, and our five year wedding anniversary coming up, I had the urge to chat marriage lessons and love. Nope I don’t hold all the secrets and every relationship is different but this is my experience. Read Full Article
Today’s wedding vow renewal in Litchfield, Connecticut was one that I was so elated about. My bride is a beautiful model from Trinidad and her husband is a firefighter/DJ. The wedding took place at their beautiful home outdoor surrounded by all of their family & friends from the Caribbean.
When Annya sent me the pics of her dress I knew exactly the makeup look I wanted to do on her in the ladies. So I brought so much makeup with me just so I could have everything at my disposable.
I chose to do all of the makeup outdoor because I wanted that natural light. Since Annya was going to be outside 99.9 % of the day I needed that light because this is how everyone will see her. I didn’t want that heavy face that looked only good in pics. I wanted it to be stunning yet effortless.
If you wanted to find all of the girls of course they were hanging with the beautiful bride.
The food was DELICIOUS…4 of these Shandy Carib lager beer had me feeling really good.
The family, only person missing is 4 month old baby London
Annya Best Friend for life… Yendi Phillipps is a Jamaican TV Host, model and beauty queen who the winner of the Miss Jamaica World 2007 beauty pageant, as well as the Miss Jamaica Universe 2010 pageant.
What a beauty…still can’t believe she had a baby 4 months ago.
