15 Years!

Fall 1994 - hanging out with a dinosaur

Today is the day we got married 15 years ago, and we're celebrating! And we have a whole day with kids in school to do whatever we want. Our first date was October 18th of 1993. Within about 2 weeks we were discussing getting married because it just felt right from the start. My Dad died Nov. 23rd and that threw us into a whole new realm of relationship. There is no pretense or pretending or figuring out who each other are (is? oh my grammar) when that kind of thing happens. Kevin was my rock and I knew I wanted him forever. We were engaged March 5th, and married exactly 8 months after our first date. It was an emotional time trying to figure out the grief feelings and the falling madly in love feelings at the same time. The up and the down, but he hung around and saw me through.

Kevin is a wonderful , loving and considerate husband, a great Dad, a loyal son, and a committed, rational thinking, question asking believer in Jesus. But most of all my best friend, my buddy. I can't wait for many more years together!

Goodness, there weren't digital photos back then, so we don't have nearly as many. Here we are on our 15th anniversary trip back in January. Our romantico ocean cruise... Good thing we went and spent the cash before the job thing ended and we might have had to change our minds.

Happy Anniversary - that's a milestone anniversary. Kevin, I love the Teva/socks look.

Happy anniversary. I'm also loving the socks and Teva's ... it's so Canadian. I'm so glad you two found each other.
