time flies when your having fun -in love-

tomorrow is my 18th wedding anniversary.
the day i married my very best friend.
wow.
that's all i can say.




what in the world did i ever do
to deserve this man?
blessed would be an understatement.

not a day goes by that i am not amazed at the man he is. 
his generosity and thoughtfulness is immeasurable.
i can remember the day we met. at a gas station. i was 15. 


many years later, 2 beautiful children & many many many wonderful memories later,
here we are.
he treats me like a princess.
always has.
 i am beyond blessed.
i thank God for him always.
i look forward to many many many years ahead.
i've never seen a husband who would rather hang out with his wife & kids vs. "they guys".

we are always his first choice & first priority.

we will be away most of the weekend......we are going to the symphony, dinner {duh},
 a boat show and who knows what/where else.
i am off and will be back monday!
catch you all then-

week at a glance...

wednesday: {semi} wordless wednesday
friday: recipe swap!

  11. Happy Anniversary, Daph! How wonderful you have such a beautiful marriage...they are rare these days as you very well know! As I read through this post I was thinking I feel the same way about my hubby! We will celebrate 36 years of wedded bliss this September. We met and married when I was 15, he was 21....and we are more in love today than ever before. He leaves me little love notes almost everyday and he, too, would rather be with me than with "the guys". We have 3 amazing grown children...I call him my Prince Charming and I live a fairytale life with him!
    Here's to many many more years of wedded bliss for you and yours!
    Have a Fabulous Friday!
    ;-D Kathleen
