18 years!


Can you beleive it?  Carl and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary yesterday.  Well, we didn’t really "celebrate".  We had a busy weekend with football games, school shopping and errand running, and Carl had to work on Saturday so we spent yesterday just relaxing at home.  It was nice.  Carl gave me a very cool silver bracelet that has the following words etched on it:  courage, truth, balance, grace and wisdom.  So, so cool.  He got it at Chico’s.  I tried to find a picture of it to post, but they don’t have the bracelet on their website.  Bummer.  Trust me, it is very cool!

So, eighteen years…. very weird.  So long and yet it doens’t really seem like it.  We have had our ups and downs and our good times and bad, but through it all we are still together.  Working together to raise our children, balance it all and remain the best of friends.  We don’t find a lot of "couple" time these days, but we are feeling the kids start to slip away from us and we are trying to enjoy our time with them and our time as a family.  Good times. 

Carl, thanks for the last 18 years…. and here’s to many, many more years together!  I love you!

    How cool to be celebrating 18 years. It’s quite an accomplishment too. Congratulations!! I can’t wait to see your bracelet, but I don’t want to see it in a scan, I want to see it in person. HINT, HINT. LOL
