10 years!

Last weekend, we celebrated our 10-year anniversary! We rented a private room and shared our special day with family and close friends (some were camera shy). I wanted to share what I wore that night as well as some of my personal thoughts. Going into my second marriage, I'd be lying if I said I wasn't scared. Going back 10 years ago, I still remember clear as day. We were at the airport waiting to board (we had a destination wedding). My husband told me "please promise me that no matter what happens, you'll always try". I promised to never give up on us. There were a lot of unknowns going into the second marriage. We came from different experiences and backgrounds, different cultures, different mindsets. However, our mutual attraction is undeniable and we share a deep connection since day one. Fast forward 10 years later, lots of things have changed but our strong bonds remain the same. It's been 10 years since we've chosen to walk this life together. Love isn't a fairy tale. Our journey hasn't been easy but the challenges we have overcome have made our bond stronger and our connection grow deeper. To my wonderful husband, thank you for being my rock. Thank you for being kind and patient. Thank you for accepting me for who I was. Most of all, thank you for loving me like no one else ever has or ever will. You know I don't share my personal life on social media but I do want to share a toast that my husband made that night. It warmed my heart. I feel incredibly lucky to have this man by my side for the rest of my life. Sorry for the video's quality. A friend recorded on his phone.

I spent weeks searching for an outfit to wear for the occasion. Didn't have much luck at first but thank goodness, I came across this beauty at the last minute. It was love at first sight. This dress is incredible. It's been awhile since I've been this excited about a dress. Ruching details create flattering curves (which I don't have), hide the tummy and creating an hourglass effect. If you're on the shorter side, the length can be easily adjusted. It's my absolute favorite dress at the moment. Everyone complimented me on how beautiful this dress was. I wish it came in more colors. I would totally buy them all =) So grateful to celebrate our special day with family and close friends. Their time and thoughtfulness were very much appreciated. Outfit details: Lipsy dress *size 2* | Jimmy Choo shoes | Forever 21 earrings | Rolex watch | Le Specs sunglasses
