Happy Anniversary!

Today our humans celebrate their third year of marriage, which is like a hundred years in cat years! Many years ago, our humans met and started a transatlantic love affair, that would end with the three of us moving to Italy for good.

The day was purfect for a wedding; clear skies filled with sunshine. They were married in one of the oldest churches in the area, complete with 13Th century frescoes adorning the alter.

(The founding of this church was around 1140 AD)

The ceremony was performed half in English and half in Italians; with booklets printed in each language so that all the guests could follow along.

(Our male Italian said his vows in English
while our female said hers in Italian)

Wedding traditions from both cultures were both used as a way to combine Italian culture with American culture; just like our family is!

(Many of the guests, including the priest,
had not ever seen a unity candle used in a wedding before)

After the ceremony, we piled into our human's car and headed off for a long night of eating, drinking, and dancing!

None of us could have imagine that we would end up in Italy all those years ago when our humans first met, but now we can't imagine living anywhere else!

Love brought us Italy and love has kept us here!

Happy Anniversary to your humans. What a lovely picture of you with your Mom in her wedding dress. Mommy's eyes got leaky when she saw it.

We will keep an eye out for your van when we take Charlotte and MoMo sightseeing today in Ocean Springs. Who knows we just might see it.
