Now you are 2 bodies, but there is only 1 life before you

I'm putting this up a bit early so she'll have a chance to see it... This Sunday not only does Michele prove what it means to be fabulous at 40, she also ties the knot with her true love in life! I wish you both all the best on this day. Make sure to drink every single second in -- it flies by so quickly! I'll leave you with many happy birthday wishes, even more wedding congrats, and this poem that was read at our own wedding. I still get goosebumps when I read the third and fourth paragraphs. *kiss, kiss* - Love, Robyn (and Todd)

Marriage is a commitment to life,
the best that two people can find
and bring out in each other.
It offers opportunities for sharing and growth
that no other relationship can equal.
It is a physical and an emotional joining
that is promised for a lifetime.

Within the circle of its love,
marriage encompasses all of lifeís
most important relationships.
A wife and a husband are each otherís
best friend, confidant, lover, teacher, listener, and critic.
And there may come times when one partner
is heartbroken or ailing, and the love of the other
may resemble the tender caring of a parent for a child.

Marriage deepens and enriches every facet of life.
Happiness is fuller,
memories are fresher,
commitment is stronger,
even anger is felt more strongly,
and passes away more quickly.

Marriage understands and forgives the mistakes
life is unable to avoid.
It encourages and nurtures new life, new experiences,
and new ways of expressing a love that is deeper than life.

When two people pledge their love and care for
each other in marriage, they create a spirit
unique unto themselves which binds them closer
than any spoken or written words.

Marriage is a promise, a potential
made in the hearts of two people who love each other
and takes a lifetime to fulfill.

-- Edmund O'Neil

Hey boy take a look at me...let me dirty up your mind...

I married Mike at age 40...two years ago! In many ways, life DOES begin at 40. Congratulations, Michele...I wish you the best!

What a wonderful way to start my morning. Thank you, Robyn and Todd, for being an incredible role model for marriage. You are two of the most giving, caring people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing.

I think I'm going to cry now.
