Congratulations on your Wedding Anniversary. I would love to see your wedding photo. I'll bet you were the most beautiful Bride and Groom and if you picked the flowers, I'm sure they were gorgeous. Also, if Dolores was in charge of the cake, it must have been delicious. What a glorious day for the two of you and I wish you both good health, love, and great memories.
