Today is our 2nd Wedding Anniversary!

Two years ago today, on June 26, 2009 we took our legal marriage vows in Bridgeport, Connecticut! 
Tom & Rob, Wedding Cake House, Maine
We drove up with our friend and best man, Jeff. We were joined by our friends Mike and Amy, who just married this past December. Mike married us. Rob's brothers came, and sister-in-law Dawn, and our friends Jacquie, Kerrie and son Brady, Colleen, Gail.
  It's amazing to think of how long ago that was and how much has happened. 
FAMILY: We've fostered several dogs for the Dachshund rescue and took a special one in.(more later), Tom changed employers, Rob now managing breaking news, hurricanes and wildfires and more at work. Dolly and Franklin still feisty as ever at 6 and 7. 
AT HOME: Since then, we've done a lot of work on the house, having an upstairs dormer built, putting windows on the Sunporch we built (with our friend Jack's help), laying a tile floor, getting the garage made into a room (still in progress), getting plantation shutters for the living room, having the house electrical redone, enhancing the house's cooling system with a thermostat controlled duct system (so the upstairs is cool!). We've been to Puerto Rico this year, and a Caribbean cruise and NC/TN last year. We've been to many dog related fundraising events, several ghost hunts with professional ghost hunters, and Rob published his first book.

FRIENDS:  Several changed jobs, several have moved to different states (incl. Gail who was at the wedding-moved from MA to VT), our dear friend Sarah who made gourmet cupcakes for our wedding reception (in Sept. following) passed away, a couple who were together 10 years split, another who have been dating 7 years are taking the plunge and another couple celebrated 50 years together! Of course some friends have drifted, while other new friends entered our lives. A number of friends have lost their parents recently, Chris in Orlando lost his mom, Maureen in Mass. lost her dad. Colleen & Todd Heather & Jeremy & Suzanne and Kevin welcomed new babies, and some friends adopted new dogs to their families. These are the events that make life an adventure and we're glad to be able share in all of them (happy and sad) with each of you. Thanks for being part of our lives!

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
