My 25th Anniversary!


Tomorrow is my Silver Wedding Anniversary. You heard right! It's my 25th anniversary! Impressive, I know. And I am really feeling older now. More mature, right? *snort*

I met my husband, John, when I was 17. I had graduated high school, and moved to Houston, Texas to attend a Bible school that was affiliated with his chuch. (His dad was the preacher.) I moved there two weeks before I turned 18.

On my 18th birthday, John presented me with a dozen roses. Well, that was that, and we began dating. We dated for a year and he proposed on my 19th birthday, down on the beach at Galveston. Very romantic. We were married 4 months later, which I know is way too fast!

We have four wonderful children, one beautiful daughter-in-law, and one fat cat.(not so pleased about the cat) We've lived in 2 states, 4 cities, and have been at 6 churches.

Life has been full of blessings and I am forever grateful that God led me to a wonderful man whose laughter lifts my heart, whose faith keeps me grounded, and whose love holds me close.

I will be unplugged this week since my husband is taking me to Eureka Springs, Arkansas to stay in a treehouse! I told him I would leave the laptop at home, but would take a book or two...or three. Here is a link to see the treehouse we will be staying in! The Lofty Lookout Treehouse.

So have fun this week without me. I know I may have withdrawals being away from my laptop that long, but I am looking forward to the rest, relaxation, and being with my best friend in the world.

  3. Happy Anniversary!

    I've been to Eureka Springs. Granted it was ten years ago -- I went to school in Springfield, Missouri and we took a little overnight girl's trip.

    What a lovely little town. Have fun.

  31. Congratulations. My wife and I recently celebrated our 18th anniversary. For the record, we didn't date any longer than you two did either (though we were a couple years older when we met). I really like where you are going though; it looks absolutely beautiful.

  33. Happy Anniversary! Congratulations on your 25 years together.

    Have fun celebrating. The Tree House looks like a super place to do so. What a novel idea. (Pun intended. Smile.) Love the heart-shaped jacuzzi.

    I hope you don't go into withdrawal without your laptop.

  36. Happy Anniversary. I must say, yours is really a testament to commitment. I would have thought that 19 is too young an age to understand love fully, but you have proven me wrong. I guess what they say is true.. Love knows no age. I wish you another 25.. nah, make that a 100. Congrats!

  37. How sweet! Congratulations! I hope you have lots more good times still to come.
