The Honeymoon's Not Over

Greetings Happy People,

I'm Baaaaack!!!

As I write this message to you, lots of good things happened to me.

First, I got a promotion at my job.

Then I stepped into the role of District Governor for my Toastmasters community in southern Nevada and central California

Speaking of which, my face was on the front page of the website. CLICK HERE to check it out.

And there was one more thing - I JUST GOT MARRIED!!! YAY!!!

That's right, Happy People!! Mr. I-I-I is now a married man!! On July 1st, I celebrated my union with my beloved wife Dana and some amazing folks. Before we tied the knot, Dana and I have been going out for four years. Call me crazy, but I think this marriage will be awesome.

After the wedding celebration, we went to our "mini-moon" at the Luxor and had a great time. It is amazing what free upgrades you can get when one wears a tuxedo and the other wears a bridal gown. I was wearing the tuxedo.

Our big honeymoon will take place next month in beautiful Orlando, Florida!! We are so looking forward to that :o)

Twenty-one days have passed and as I think about this in depth, I am glad that I made the right choice that Christmas night in 2009 when I proposed to her. It was a wise decision, indeed.

As we acquaint ourselves as man and wife, I also wonder what other couples go through in their marriages. Today, there are couples out there that fight over things like money, jobs, or sex. Some of these arguments can get nasty and bitter. Strong couples can weather through these minor storms for better sails. Others would let the ship sink and are either left drowning or holding on to someone's dinghy.

Either way, it is better for someone to take the time to know a person before going into a serious commitment like marriage.The great philosopher Elvis Presley said "Wise men say only fools rush in." I am thankful that I did not rush into this relationship and had the time to get to know Dana. It certainly paid off now, and will pay off in the long run.

As I write this message to you, I can tell you that this is only the beginning. While it is true that Dana and I have been going out for a while, this is something new for the both of us. Will there be challenges along the way? Yes, but there will be more good fortunes too!! Once we can take the time to be grateful and appreciate the good things in our lives, the honeymoon will never be over!!

That is all I have for now. Take care and thank you for your time and attention.

Santino and I just celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary, however we have been together for 14 years. He is not only my husband but my very best friend! I think if you do take the time to get to know one another there is nothing that can come in between you. No relationship is perfect but when you take your time and truly know one another you can get through anything!!!!

Congrats to you both and we would really like to take you guys to dinner soon!!!!!! Let us know when would be good for you both so we can set some thing up
