Fifteen!


I had to flip through my box of wedding snapshots to find this one...maybe I should have them reprinted before film becomes completely obsolete! It might be nice to do a wedding album someday, too...ah well. Maybe for the twentieth!

And how young do
we look? Yikes! 22 (him) and 21 (me) in case anyone wonders.

In fifteen years' time, we have lived in four states, six apartments/rentals, and two houses. We've acquired four siblings-in-law, two nephews, and six nieces. We have traveled and we've sat on the couch and watched movies. We have gained weight and lost hair--and what's left is turning grey. We are different from the couple who walked down the aisle on that beautiful May morning. Thankfully, the basics have stayed the same: we still love to talk and laugh together; we still get excited when the other person comes home.

I was listening to my John Denver album last week (hey, I never said I was cool) and heard these lyrics: "The kisses that I live for, the love that lights my way, the happiness that living with you brings me...it's the sweetest thing I know of, just spending time with you." That sums up the past fifteen years better than anything I can think of...I love you, sweetie!

Wow. 15 years! I totally forgot about your anniversary, and didn't send you a card (isn't that Tracy's job, anyway?)

Congratulations, and good job picking out Todd. He's a pretty cool brother-in-law!

Wait...I guess this means I've been out of high school for 15 years now. Jeesh....

That's a great photo, and you've still got it, girlfriend!!! The only thing that's changed is the length of your hair.

Hope you had a great anniv.!
