13th Anniversary!

Today Matt and I celebrate 13 yrs of wedded bliss! Ok maybe wedded bliss isn't the correct term, it has been a roller coaster ride for most of the time but I wouldn't trade my passenger/sidekick/pilot for anything! Wedded bliss to me is something in a fairy tale not reality! We have experienced so many things in 13 yrs...the birth of 3 beautiful children, the deaths of Matt's grandmother and grandfather, the death of a close friend, 9 moves, graduating from college, numerous jobs, fun vacations. This morning when we woke up we both agreed we wouldn't trade any of our many experiences....they have made us the couple/people we are! I honestly can't remember what my life was like before Matt nor do I want to! I am thankful for a godly husband, who is a wonderful dad.

Sadly I can't show you how stunning we were on our wedding day as we got married before digital cameras and our scanner hasn't been hooked up since we moved 2 months ago...we will get to that eventually it just wasn't high on the to-do list!

Matt, I am so thankful that God placed you in my life. I am so thankful to have such a wonderful partner to spend my days with. I look forward to 67 more wonderful years seeing what God has in store for us! Thank you for making me your wife!

Taylor took this picture of us before we left for the movies

BTW, we saw "Salt" and it was awesome! So glad we picked it :)

Happy anniversary! Hope you had a good one, and that you have many more great years together. All the shared experiences, such as the ones you mentioned, are part of the fun of it. They may not be so fun at the time, but learning to grow together through them only makes your marriage stronger!

Happy Anniversary! I would say I remember it well but we all know I don't, HA! I recently got negative scanner so I might have to find some negatives from your wedding and upload one for you tomorrow!

Happy Anniversary, you guys! It's neat to look back at all that you've gone through so far together. Just curious...what made you pick 67 more years together?
