8th Anniversary

(Edited to fix video -- I reloaded it into my YouTube account instead, so it should work now Thanks Jill for the heads up!)


Eight years ago yesterday, I married my best friend. Today, I love him more than ever. Thank you, Greg, for always keeping up the chase, continuing to "date" me, and loving me through and with everything in our lives together.

The day he left from R&R to go back to Iraq, he sent me a text message, directing me to this video: This Is The First Day Of My Life. This song and video became a precious emotional link across the miles, and I've recorded my own cover version (please excuse the clunky piano) to back this slideshow of the last 8 years.

Beautiful, Faith! I'm so glad you have each other. God made a perfect match.

PS I watched on Flickr twice and the video kicks out part way through.

Gorgeous...thank you for sharing it...your voice expressed every bit of your emotion in singing it. (By the way...you should record it! What an incredible voice!)

Where does time go? I remember your wedding weekend vividly and fondly. I'm always in awe of how you guys handle all the time apart; you're both made of much tougher stuff than I. I commend and congratulate you on your anniversary and know there will be many others.
