Several years ago I stumbled on a TV sitcom in which a woman, upon getting her new driver's license in the mail and comparing it to the now-expired one, exclaimed, "What happened? I used to be so shiny!" I think of that scene almost every time I look at our wedding pictures.
At any rate, Monday was our third anniversary. I wanted to do something extra special for Fabio, to show him how much I've appreciated his support through everything we've gone through this year. No one could have been more thoughtful while I was pregnant, more generous as we moved, more tender during my labor, more sweet as a father, or more strong through my illness. He really is a prince.
So, I surprised him with a getaway to the Marina Bay Sands here in Singapore.
The view from our room
The swimming pool! We live here.
It's still so surreal, especially at times like these.
Between the view from our room, the pool on the roof (57th floor), and pizza from the "famous" Mario Batali, it was quite the romantic day if I do say so myself.
Of course, how could it not be with
this fellow by your side?
Ah, the joy of marrying my best friend: we have a great time whether we're on a romantic night out, or eating potato chips while we laugh at our baby's spit bubbles.
Life is good with you, my dear. Thanks for marrying me, Fabio!

Look how shiny we used to be!
