Today Is Our 30th Anniversary!

Today Troy and I celebrate 30 years of marriage!  You would think a post like this would be easy to write but it’s not.  It’s not easy because it’s hard to put into words how blessed and thankful I am to be loved by a person so completely, so unconditionally, so consistently and just… so much.

Instead of using a lot of words in this post, I think I’ll share some our favorite photos of doing life together.  I’m away from home today so I can’t include very many photos from years ago.

We have been blessed to be able to travel a bit and have some wonderful experiences together.  But our best experience has been raising our family.

It’s a wonderful life!

Scuba Diving in Cozumel, Mexico. I LOVED this!

God truly blessed me when He gave me Troy.

He’s loves God.

He’s a real Christian.

He’s been supportive of my hopes and dreams and has done whatever it took to see them come true.

He’s the most patient man I know and he’s practiced them a lot on me.

He never asks for anything.

He rarely complains about anything.

And he eats leftovers.

What’s not to love about a man like that?

I’m blessed.  Thank you, Troy, my Prince Charming, for 30 wonderful years of marriage!

I love you!
