Happy Anniversary to Us!


Today, 16 years ago I married my prince, after kissing a couple of frogs, I was swept off my feet, really! We were set up by our best friends who were married to each other, who thought we'd be perfect for each other, they were right. Marriage is hard at times, and we started ours with 5 kids between us. We had practice, but practice doesn't always make for perfect, alot of hard work, patience, understanding and faith had a part of it all. Today, we are enjoying our empty nest life, well earned. Don't get me wrong, we LOVE our kids and family comes first, but having our time is special and needed. Life is unpredictable, so savor the sweetness and the pain and learn as you go. We are blessed beyond our means and love does make it all worth the ride! Happy Anniversary to us, and to all who celebrate their love!
P.S. This photo was taken a couple of years ago at a son's wedding.
