The joy in my life

This year has been beautiful as best friends, and now, as husband and wife. I feel so much love within for all that you are. Next year will be even more beautiful, because as it has been through the years, we will still be best friends, but will share our first 'entire' year as one.

My sweetness, you are love.

And with each moment we two share whether it be out shooting photographs, shopping, watching movies, cooking, laughing, tender moments and more, my heart glistens inside. I adore when you sing to me, or when you reach over just to touch my hand. I adore all that you are, my love, and would marry you a million times over without regret.

You are beautiful, sweet, sensual, brave, romantic, loving, intelligent, cultured, warm. funny, and you touch me in ways that no other has or ever could. ... you are a true man in each and every way. And I love how you sing to me, or sit me on your lap... how you always reach for my arm with your own when walking together and keep my hand warm within yours.

I love that cute little curl that sticks up in the mornings or the way the right corner of your mouth reveals a slight dimple when you smile. I adore your stories and laughter, the way you cook, and I adore the way we two make love... how you tell me how much you love me as you look into my eyes. I melt completely.

If I did anything right this year, I fell in love and married my very best friend. And to fall in real love is something we all dream of... I am one of the fortunate ones and am so grateful.

I had to experience falsehood, lies and sorrow to get to where I am with you. You were the one true thing in my life, because you always remained the same--standing beside me through all that, holding my hand, drying my tears and most importantly, never ceasing to love me with all your heart. Thank you for how you are, baby. Thank you for believing in me.

Ti amo!

Your wife, Cher

From my sweet husband before we married :) :

"Oh My Sweet, my Sweet,

I listened to sleep for awhile, oh you are my Heaven, my Hopes and My Dreams. Oh my Sweet, how I love so. I went to your Mojo and listened to your music. I see how we love the same variety of music, I see you in everything. I am sooooooo in love with you.

I smiled from inside to every pore of my flesh when I listened to your sleeping breathe and Secret Garden. We are so similar, and I know beyond a shadow of doubt we are twin souls, twin souls seeking all we are together. My Baby, I love you more than I love my breath.

Secret Garden is one of my all time faves, it reaches deep within me and pulls hard at my heart strings, oh Honey, thank you for letting me into your Secret Garden. I am feeling you so much right now. I imagine you sleeping and I looking down upon you as a wraith, watching over you, loving you with all I am, protecting your heart, living for the moment you awaken knowing I am with you there in heart. I feel your smile upon my soul, I feel your love across the abyss of time and oceans of space.

I only wish I could tell you in words not yet written how much I love you. You are permeating my space, my mind, my existence, I am surrounded by your heart and feel safe... I am loved by the most incredible woman breathing... how awesome is that?

I promise to love you as much as I do this moment, always. I want to build our lives together and to give my all to you. I promise to love you until my breath fades into the unknown. I must touch you... I so desire it, I so want you.

Cher, my Sweet Cher, my Love, my Breath, my Reason for tomorrow... I love you, Baby, Baby, Baby, oh my God, Baby... I am so in love, I am smitten, I am crazy for you, I want to wrap your presence around me and walk in the Light of Joy, the Joy I feel right now, every day, every moment....Every everything. Oh Baby...



:))))))))) He is all that I am and more.

Happy New Year!


May your new year be filled with joy and warmth.

Have such a wonderful holiday!

Stefan & Cher :)

I talked to the assistant executive producer of ABC the day before yesterday. He said, "Is Stefan there?" I said, "Sure, one moment, please." ;)

What? You thought it was something more exciting? My thought was, "Do you know who I am? Have you seen my work?" (... just kidding,... I would never say that to him!)

He did seem very sweet. Sadly, my husband gets all the good calls! ;)

Hugs! :)

He's bringin' sexy back

I am so bad right now, but I don't care. Why do I post these? Because I can? ;) Soooo, being the brat that I am, I made a song that makes me think of Stefan as my first song here on my play list. ... it is SO about him. ;)

Well, I just love my husband and no matter what he does or says, he will always be beautiful in my eyes.

Something he wrote to me:

My Sweetness,

In the cool of winter, brisk breeze upon my flesh, warmth floods from within.
Across the fields of white and frozen waters, standing focused through a lens,
a smile across a wintered face, contentment and joy withstanding.

I watch from across the lake of ice, watching, happy and loved. It is in these moments winter's chill fails it's mission, warmth from hearts full of love reigns supreme.

All that I am lies within your embrace, nurtured by gentle caresses from soul to soul, eternal and true.

Baby, spending time together capturing nature in its winter clothes yesterday meant more to me than one thousand thousand "I Love Yous"

Solid and unconditionally,


Tonight has been a great night together and it can only get better. I wish you all such a warm weekend!

-Cher :)

If Tomorrow Never Comes

... at least we had today.







... and what a beautiful day it was together. Nothing can compare to the way he makes me feel. I am grateful to have a husband as sweet and as wonderful, as Stefan is.

Good night :)

You're in my heart

Today was a very long day, but time spent with you has and always will, make each moment worthwhile. I will never stop falling in love with you.

My dearest love,

I need you. It is the sort of need that does not come from a certain "wanting", but a deeper meaning inside. I suppose it is a need that runs through one's veins and into the soul. ... I will always need you. I need you near when times seem a bit too much. I need your kiss each night before sleep. I need your smile to brighten my day.

Most of all, I need you for life; you are not only my husband, but you are my best friend, and that is something I will cherish forevermore.

Your best friend and wife,

Together, we are beautiful


Here is the 1st photograph from our tree. :)

Luci e colori del Natale...

Stefan and I went out and bought some beautiful decorations and lights. We went to A.C. Moore and bought some Christmas ribbon, as well. I could not believe what beautiful glass ornaments we saw--some Waterford ones were absolutely precious.

Afterward, we came home and began stringing the lights... holiday music filling the air, kissing our cheeks with the joy of having each other. We sang, danced arm in arm and kissed. It took me back to something he said the other night, " Isn't is nice to spend the holidays with someone?" Yes, my love, it really is. I am not sure how I answered, but I recall feeling loved beyond measure.

(I think it was about 2 am when we finished all we needed to do.) :)

Stefan was so sweet as his eyes sparkled within our first Christmas together. They made my heart smile more than it ever has. His love for me is more than I could have ever dreamed,... it completes me.

After all was done, I fell asleep in his arms--the tree, lighting up the room softly.

Just the Two of Us


An image I shot while in Carmel, California. I must say, it is an absolutely amazing place to be, and with the couple beneath the sunset, it was very romantic, as well. (If I am not mistaken, this image had won a cash prize contest after it was taken.)

I hope you are all enjoying your week.
-Cher :)

O Christmas Tree


We went out tonight, picked out a beautiful Christmas tree and set it up in its stand with water and such. Tomorrow we will decorate it! As soon as it is all done, I will post an image of it here to share.

Last night, Stefan and I went for a 2 hr walk around the neighborhood. We saw homes decorated so peacefully for the season, heard some that played music, and stopped to admire an entire home and alley strung with lights, music, antique snowmen, real animals and all other sorts of things. It was so sweet and inviting.

We kissed for a moment. I wanted to give him a very romantic one, but there were people coming and I had gotten a bit shy. After we left, I told him of what I had wanted to do,... he stated, "I wanted to dance with you." I smiled inside, held his arm tighter, and we walked on.


I remember thinking as we were almost home how I never wanted this night to end. I turned my eyes toward him without his knowledge and felt so much love inside, said nothing and turned toward our driveway.

I am utterly in love with my husband.

-Goodnight to you all. Sleep peacefully.

A prayer for the desperate hearts tonight


... as Aerosmith says, "You have to learn to crawl before you learn to walk..."

Never let anyone hurt you, ever. May you find the love Stefan and I have found. May your heart feel true happiness,... everyone deserves that. True love is always worth frighting for. True love is worth every up and down,... every second you endure. I say this because there is nothing else like it--a true love is all and everything it supposed to be, and it is incredibly beautiful.

Believe it. :)



...were made for peace, security and to share with someone you care for. May you all have a most beautiful weekend full of perfect days and the blessing of just being here.


Here, in my heart


... it fills with a tremendous love, whenever I see him smile--it is one of the most beautiful things my eyes have ever had the pleasure to endure. I need him more than he will ever know.
