Today marks a momentous occasion in our home, our 14th Wedding anniversary!
We were, as they call it, High School Sweethearts and never had a previous relationship with anyone else. Many said it would never last.
We actually enjoy telling the story....January 27, 1997, After crushing miserably after him for a year and a half he suddenly came up to me one day while walking down the hallway at school, put his arm around me, and asked if I'd go out with him. Of course it presented a problem right away....I was only 15 years old and the family rule was no dating until 16. So what does a girl do? I said "I have to ask my mom!" (um...crawling under a rock right about now!) LOL But girls, it is reassurance that all is not lost when you make a fool of yourself! After getting permission we went to a school dance together and the rest is history.
He is my very Best Friend! We were married in a church right here in our home town 3.5 years later. :) Every member of our immediate family (and our Best Buds) are in this photo with the exception of our mothers.

Thank you for allowing me to share this little peek into our family life, if you hang with me in the future you'll see similar posts often...I truly love my family!
Marriage is HARD work but it is the most rewarding "work" I've ever experienced. We see so many broken homes now days, I believe a strong marriage is the VERY BEST gift we will ever be able to give our son!
