16 Years Ago Today...

  • I worked full time (selling cheerleading uniforms!) and was finishing my degree.

  • I couldn't imagine living anywhere but Southern California.

  • I drove a brand-new Saturn (I loved that car!).

  • I couldn't believe they still used "obey" in marriage cerimonies. Not me!

  • I thought keeping house meant throwing everything in a closet 10 minutes before guests arrived.

  • I wasn't really clear on where God fit in my life.

  • I thought I'd have a couple children, sometime in the future.

But the best thing that happened 16 years ago today:

  • I was blessed by God to marry the most wonderful man!


  1. Some thing have changed for sure, but one thing has not...you are still married to a great guy! Likewise, he has a pretty awesome gal as well. Congrats on 16 years guys! What a joy!

  3. Let's try it again! Happy anniversary! We just celebrated 14 years this last Wednesday (the 9th), and I too like you had no idea 14 years ago what now would look like! It's better than I ever expected it to be - I pray that you have many more blessed years together!

  4. What a testimony of God's grace! It is amazing how far you have come! I'd love to hear more about your Journey!!!
