12 Years of Marriage

On a beautiful, crisp, fall day twelve years ago I married my husband. It was a fanstastic day, filled with many laughs and lots of family and friends. In some ways it feels like it was just yesterday that I was running around making sure all the wedding day plans were finalized but in other ways it feels like a lifetime ago. I guess 2 kids, 2 houses, 2 dogs, 2 cats and 2 full time jobs will do that to you!

Seems like two is our number, huh?

It's not all unicorns and rainbows, of course. Marriage is hard. We've had a few rough patches over the years but we've remain committed to each other and our family.  In this day and age of quickie divorces, I think that says a lot about both of us.

1995 ~ we started dating

1999 ~ got engaged

2000 ~ bought our 1st house and got married

2002 - our 1st son was born

2004 ~ our 2nd son was born

2008 ~ sold our 1st house and moved into a new one (where I will die and be carried out in a body bag because moving is not fun!)

2010 ~ marks 10 years of marriage (we like to joke that we got married in the year 2000 so it would easy for him to remember how many years we've been married)
