18 Years

Today, Gregg & I celebrate 18 years of marriage.


I'm so thankful to be his wife.

He's my best friend,
my confidant,
my love,
my buddy,
the person whose company I enjoy above all others.

He has been with me through the best times and the worst times of my life.

He is the man who made me a mother, and he is a wonderful father.

He's the man whose family I am privileged to have joined.
He is beloved by my family.


He is my beloved.

I'm thankful to God for bringing us together.

Thank you, Gregg, for 18 wonderful years (and for your faithfulness and love through the ten worst months of our lives).

I love you!

Happy Anniversary!

I know, it's hard to believe what the "worse" in "for better or worse" turns out to be sometimes. It looks and sounds like the two of you each found a wonderful companion to share that burden as well as the joys.

You guys have such a cool marriage -- how fun to see all the cute pictures!

Also fun to see another -- ahem -- "older" bride; I, too, was 31.

Happy anniversary!

Karen Happy Anniversary to you and your husband.

I can't believe how much your daughter Katie looks like you both. Almost a 50/50 split.

I think your son looks just like you.

The pictures are wonderful.
