Friday Photo Flashback-Happy Anniversary!

I started "Friday Photo Flashback" because I have so many pictures from my PRE-digital camera days. I thought it would be fun to scan them and share them here with you. I'm having so much fun doing this, that I would love for you to join me, too! So dig out the photo albums and put your scanner to good use! Don't forget to link up so we can all visit and comment on each others blogs!

This is a SPECIAL Friday Photo Flashback because it's my 16th wedding anniversary!! Whoa!! That's like amazing in this day and age, right?!!

All I know is that we owe it all to the Lord because that is the only way we've survived through all the ups and downs. We all know that marriage isn't perfect, and it takes work. Alot of work. It's about dying to yourself daily and not demanding your own way. It's very humbling, and it's also a huge blessing. Another important factor in a marriage (besides all the obvious things), is LAUGHTER! My husband and I can make each other crack up, and sometimes, we don't even have to say specifically at what. We can see something, and it will automatically make us think of the same exact thing. So many times our kids are like, "What??? What???"

The Lord has truly blessed us with five wonderful kids, and just a wonderful family life. Yes, we have our drama here and there, but who doesn't? I'm just thankful that it's nothing that we can't handle with the Lord!! I don't ever want to take them for granted. Life is too short, and tomorrow is not promised to us.

Me and hubby on our wedding day! I was already prego with our first child.
