15 years later

Well as of May 31st, I have been married to the man of my dreams, my hero, my marine for 15 years!  Hard to believe that it has been that long we have been together for over 20 years now. We started dating my senior year in high school- yes that means I graduated 20 years ago. Wow!  I am totally dating myself huh?
When My sweet husband woke up that morning, he came and gave me a kiss and wished me a happy anniversary.  That is all I was expecting.  He is not a big gift, or even card giver!  He called me at lunch time and said he’d be home “early” from work.  When he got home, he handed me the sweetest card.

I felt bad, because normally I am the gift giver, but this year I did nothing! Ziltch! Nada! Oh well he was ok with that.
So we enjoyed a fun evening at home celebrating with our girls.  We had a great dinner. With lots of laughs and teasing. The kind of night I wish we always had.
We looked through our wedding album. Here are just some of the pictures. Sad to say we did not spend the money of a good photographer. My hubby had his best man’s stepdad (who was more interested in drinking & smoking out in the parking lot) take the pictures.  We only ended up with 1 picture of us together, in front of our cake. Oh well, you live and learn.  I can say for a fact we will spend them money for our girls weddings.
