What Does it Look Like? 15 Years of Big and Small Stuff

  • July 25th is our anniversary. Our 15th anniversary.  Let me just say, that I’m most certainly too young to have been married for 15 years.

    I mean, there’s no way we’ve had a combined total of 15 jobs.

    6 vehicles

    3 church homes

    2 job layoffs

    the birth of 5 sons

    11 cell phones

    5 addresses

    one town

    3 desktop computers, 2 laptops

    Countless memories

    “We pray for the big things and forget to give thanks for the ordinary, small (and yet really not small) gifts.”
    ―Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    Here’s to the next 15 years.
    (hopefully we’ll be less hard on electronics)

    I loved this!! Congratulations on 15 years!! In this society, it is so exciting for me to see marriages that are still valued and worked hard for! It was so fun to see the pictures from way back too. 🙂 Your family is so lucky to have you! xoxo

  11. happy anniversary and congratulations on FIFTEEN.
    (you are making it obvious that you were married when still a minor.)
    (and had babies before a diploma.)

    as I read this I got something in my eye…
    I think it was the hospital picture. all those precious boys.
    or maybe the “500 miles” I was listening to at the same time.
    or maybe it was remembering how innocent I was on my own wedding day…

    love to you all!

    • There’s something about looking at wedding photos that makes you think of all the things that lied ahead of those people in the pictures and what would they think about what they were doing if they knew what was to come.
