“When is the last time you traveled to a sunny vacation locale without your kiddos?” she wrote on Instagram. “We’ve never! Last time was almost 12 years ago when we got married in Fiji. This #mamabear was anxious leaving the kiddos but enjoying reconnecting with my love. So important!”
She posted a second photo of the two of them in paradise and captioned it, "12 years ago today... a girl and a boy came together all alone on a tropical island to proclaim their love for each other as they were pronounced husband and wife... I was finally the princess in my own fairytale. Fiji will always be a magical place for us. Today I celebrate the love and passion I share with @imdeanmcdermott and the 5 blessings that we’ve created together. Some people search their entire lives to find a soulmate. I’m one lucky woman because I have 6!"
Dean captioned the same photo on his Instagram: "12 years ago today I married this beautiful young lady. So blessed and grateful for her undying love. #imaluckyman #love #loveconquersall #forever."
