20 Years and counting....
I forgot to mention that Mike and I celebrated our 20th anniversary this last week. WOW! 20 years-it blows my mind. We decided our gift to each other this year would be a trip to China. Cool huh?
Mike and I married very young. I was 18 and he was 19. It was a pretty crazy time. I was finishing up my senior year in high school. He was going to trade school an hour away.
I remember it was a cold wintery day that we got married on. I remember being worried that the weather would get really bad and no one would be able to come. But they came. About 300 of them.
We honeymooned in Fort Wayne (couldn't afford a honeymoon so a few friends of my mom's went together and got us a hotel room for a couple nights). It was Super Bowl weekend. We got a pizza and sat on the bed with our pizza and watched the Super Bowl.
It hasn't always been easy, pretty tough at times actually, but in our case getting married young was a good thing. We finished growing up together. I can't imagine being married to anyone else. I can't imagine anyone else being the father to my children. Mike is my best friend and I thank God for him every day. Here is to 20 more babe!
