19 Years Ago Today...

...I married my best friend!!!  I've been married to my hubs for as many years as I lived before knowing him (and we've been together longer than we've been apart in our lives)!

We got married outside in Tahoe, CA above Emerald Bay - really pretty but it was getting chilly and that night a snowstorm hit!  Thank you Lord for delaying the snow as we didn't really think that through.  :)

I've had people ask if that's a fake backdrop, but it's the real scenery behind us - lovely!

When I look at that pic, I see a happy couple, but I also see two naive "kids" (we were 22 & 23) who weren't really walking with the Lord at that time.  We are so blessed that God worked in our hearts, drew us to Him and continues to grow and stretch us.

19 years have flown by and yet I've forgotten so many details of the early years.  Some of it is a blur, but it's a mostly happy blur!  Happy anniversary honey!  Thank you for putting up with all my piles (clean laundry, paperwork, dishes) and all my complaints about how things are "hard" (homeschooling, cooking, cleaning).  You are truly a blessing to me and I love you!

Have a lovely day friends!

  3. What a sweet post, and a sweet blessing to have grown in the Lord with your man! :) You are just as beautiful now as you were that day, as Jesus shines through you!

    P.S. Love the outdoor setting, it sure doesn't look like it's about to snowstorm. :)

    Blessings,
