Happy Anniversary!


Happy Anniversary! 16 years ago today we we got married. I don't know if you can tell by the picture or not, but my husband was incredibly nervous. I thought he might pass out there for a while. Wow, it doesn't really seem that long ago. Time does really fly. We were so young then.



This was our buffet style table. Most of the food was made by family. But in the background, you will see my most treasured wedding gift. The pink and white quilt was handmade by the ladies in the church. Most of whom were family. The quilt has all the names of our friends and family on it as well as our wedding date. I love this quilt.



That's my mom (who passed away 8 years ago) and my cousin, who has been like a father to me since my dad passed away.



The past 16 years haven't always been good. We've had our share of ups and downs. But, we keep on trying. That's what my cousin who's been married for 50 years told me, just to keep on going, no matter what. We still love each other and love our beautiful little boys more than anything.

Happy Anniversary! You sure were a pretty bride, but I can see that your fiance was nervous. But I can also see you both came through with flying colors--16 years, awesome!

Happy Anniversary! My husband nearly fainted at our rehearsal. He turned a deathly gray and had to sit down and put his head between his legs! LOL Oh well, 26 years later and we are still together too!

Awww - you do look like such youngsters. I can see why the quilt is so treasured - it's such a beautiful and sentimental keepsake. From a fellow October bride - next Saturday will be our 19th.
