16...

We were married 16 years ago today at 11 am. Well probably at about 11:41 he kissed the bride - it was a long ceremony compared to some nowadays. I was 12 minutes late for a wedding once (it was a friend of a friend of mine, I was her "date" - she was late) and we walked in to, "you may kiss the bride".

This 16th year has been one of our most challenging yet. We've spent a lot of boring time, frustrated time, worried time, and questioning time together this year. But never once have we questioned that we love each other and we'll get through it. That we will still be together, that God has brought us together. So here's to 16 years of hanging out with my buddy, my best friend! The one who listens to all my complaining and dumb comments, who still thinks I'm fantastic on a bad day, who encourages and in his calm, never endingly secure and even keeled manner keeps me centered. His creative, but brilliantly mathematical mind never ceases to amaze me, I know where our daughter gets it from. Even in the midst of doubt, there are things that will always be. God loves us and we'll always have each other.

I was thinking of you on your special day ... should have hopped online to send you a wish. Happy anniversary. I'm so proud when I see friends that have worked to keep their marriage alive after so many years.
