18 years ago today........

on a snowy December night, I walked down the aisle with this fella! I cannot believe it has been 18 years that we have been married and 21 years altogether! Since we just had Christmas, I wasn't even thinking of getting a gift for Jim, but I read somewhere on a blog (oh I wish I could give credit to which one) that penguins mate for life. I thought how perfect a symbolism for us! I mean Jim is dressed like a penguin here don't you think? And so far we have been mating for 18 years, so why not keep this mating thing going! It now makes perfect sense why we got married in the cold snowy month of December, lol. I think I am going to run out and see if I can find a penguin ornament (you know, ornaments are cheaper now) or something with a penguin on it. Like it or not sweetie we're stuck together! Actually we joke that no one out there would want to put up with either one of us so staying together it is, lol! I'm teasing of course, I can't think of anyone else I'd like to go through this world with! Here's to many more anniversaries! I Love you!


My face says, "Oh my gosh, we really got married!" I was 21, can you tell?


What's up with my helmet head I'm sporting? But hey, Jim's glasses were huge! They didn't seem that big back then!




I was talking through my teeth saying "Don't you dare try and smash that into my face!'


He always has girls around him, trying to make me jealous!



But this one has stolen his heart and I'm ok with that!


And this little guy is Jim's buddy! They do everything together. I can't believe he will be 11 on the 31st! Where does the time go!

BTW does anyone want to come over and watch the kiddos for us, remember my sitter issues and the other one is out of town until after the New Year! Just kidding, Jim is on call of course. So I am off to enjoy my anniversary with the kiddos but first some dishes need to be done and just for some shits and giggles I think I'll throw in a load of laundry. That's how I like to celebrate!

Awwh, loved the blog. 18 years, thats amazing. In a world where divorce happens more than not, it's nice to hear about a marriage gone right :) Congrats, happy anniversary!

Congrats! Isn't it amazing how time flies when you get the right guy! I always tell my husband he's stuck with me for life too & that the only way he can get out is if he turns to liking men & then he still has to be my best friend. I am sure he finds me amusing :) Celebrate big - go ahead and do 2 loads of laundry - why not!!

Yea!!! Happy Anniversary. It is so wonderful to see people loving each other. My husband and I have been together for 22 years and we are still growing in our marriage and as individuals. Our kids are getting older and now, we are rediscovering a new "us."Be blessed!
