Happy Anniversary

by Chris on October 14, 2011

We made it. One more year. 16 to be exact.

While most of our pictures consist of kids and school functions and…that dog, I was able to find a few of just us.

Through good times and bad (and mud-covered), we’ve stayed together. Marriage sure isn’t easy, but it’s just a little easier when you’re married to this guy.

Have a great weekend!

I was 12, Gayle. It was really awkward for us at first, but it became “normal” after awhile. :) You’re too nice. Thanks, lady!

Ahh, for some reason your blog fell off my radar when I was on maternity leave. I love your blog….I just can’t believe I forgot about it! I suppose I was a little pre-occupied with a newborn…ha! Anyway, I can’t wait to catch up. Now if I could find some spare time to do some of the fun projects I see….ahh, spare time! :)

Happy Anniversary! :)
