10.11.1997

Thirteen years ago today....

My darling Hubbs and I tied the knot..... In our friends' living room. It was FAB.U.LOUS.


Our friend is a pastor.... his darling wife...my sweet friend, played the piano and their daughter sang.


There were eight people there, including the pastor and his family and my Hubbs and me.


After we said our vows everyone encircled us and prayed for us.


How special is that?
Thirteen years later...........we are still happily married.


And.... I'm his #3 and he's my #3.


Sooooooooooo.......even if you've had a rocky path and think that your soulmate is nowhere to be found....take heart............


(Remember...in March one of my sweet and dear friends, Susan, married my Hubb's lifelong best friend. They were each other's #3 too.)


God led us to each other.


He'll lead you too.




Soooooo............Happy Anniversary to my dear Muffin.


I love you!..........MORE.


Your Honey Girl

  43. Your post blessed me. Was just having a conversation this morning about imperfection, yet life goes on, people go on, and we continue to love one another despite. It's what separates us from the robots. :) You are so sweet, and I am so glad we found each other. Spencer ~ super fantastic name for a girl. I love it. Congratulations on your anniversary.
