Perfect Moment Monday: Fit

July 11, 2010

in Love, Perfect Moment

Perfect Moment Monday is about noticing a perfect moment rather than creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between.

Once a week we engage in mindfulness about something that is right with our world. Everyone is welcome to join. Details on how to participate are at the bottom of this post, complete with bloggy bling.

Please visit the links of the participants at the bottom.

Here’s a perfect moment from my week. I hope you’ll share yours, too.


Roger and I celebrated our wedding anniversary this week.

We’ve covered a lot of ground in the 15 years since this photo was taken. On that pristine day, when our history together was clear as my dress, who could have known the the joys and heartaches, the moves and the stability, the births and deaths, the trials and triumphs — all the richness that awaited us as our story unfolds?

As if that isn’t perfect enough…


(Well, it buttons, anyway.)


To participate in Perfect Moment Monday:

  1. Between Sunday night and Tuesday night, write up your own Perfect Moment in a blog post, on Twitter, on Facebook, or simply leave a comment below.
  2. Grab the URL of your Perfect Moment.
  3. Use LinkyTools below to enter your blog’s name and the URL of your Perfect Moment
  4. Visit the Perfect Moments of others (from the links below), and let the writers know you were there.

Yeah, and you didn’t swaggah then, did you?!

It’s been amazing to watch you and your family grow together. You’ve been my role model since I was born. I’m so lucky to have you. Both of you!

Happy 15 years.

Thanks, Tami! How is it that you’re my role model, too?


Kristin July 11, 2010 at 8:33 pm

You know, I was thinking how sweet and wonderful and then I read that last line……I CAN STILL FIT INTO MY WEDDING DRESS!. It’s a good thing I like you so much ’cause that is enough to make me turn green with envy.

Happy Anniversary and what a truly perfect moment.


Lavender Luz July 12, 2010 at 9:08 am

Not saying I’d go OUT in it…

What a handsome couple, then and now.

Happiest Anniversary! Here is to 15 years of wedded bliss and to 15 more! (And to 15 more after that, and then another 15 for good measure!)

And WOOHOO on still fitting in that dress! That is as impressive as making it to the 15 year mark!

You are insane to try that thing on, cuz what if it hadn’t been a perfect moment? Amazing after 15 years it was a perfect moment, and woohoo for you cuz holy!!!!!, but still, you are insane my friend. In the good ways:-)

I’d say fitting into that wedding dress is the most perfect moment of all.

Happy anniversary!

Perfect! Here is to many, many more years together filled with love and experiences (of primarily the good kind).

Wow! I think Tami’s comment is a perfect moment too. How wonderful is that?

Happy Anniversary and keep enjoying the journey

Awesome and Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary!!


Sheri July 12, 2010 at 6:04 pm

Maybe there is a term called, “Circular Role Modeling,” to define you and Tami both looking up to each other. It’s like an Escher painting. You don’t know if the staircase goes up or down. :)

Great photo…and I’m NOT surprised that you can still fit into your wedding dress. :)

Happy Anniversary to you and Roger. Perfect!!!


luna July 12, 2010 at 10:06 pm
