Who Would Have Imagined


The cruise - our trip of a lifetime - is a celebration of our 25th anniversary! Twenty-five years....really, it is hard for me to believe!

For obvious reasons, I will not be posting next week..as the 14th rolls around, so I thought I would share some photos of a very young (and much thinner) me:) along with the two greatest men in my life - my dad and my sweetie!

We were married outside in a garden on the estate of a historical plantation not far from my parent's home. The day was gorgeous.

As I walked on my proud daddy's arm down that garden path created by crushed shells...there is simply no way I could have imagined twenty five years - 25 years of life with the man I affectionately call, Hubbie.

I could not have imagined.....


*together we could create three of the cutest little bundle of joys ever!
*the joy that comes from raising those three miracles and building a home together
*that one of our three would leave for Heaven before us
*the laughter, the tears, the heartaches and the joys!!

Nor could I have imagined - us, in Paris! to celebrate these past twenty-five years together! Sweet Hubbie, I can't wait to get there, to share this trip with you and to steal a kiss on the Eiffel Tower!!:)

When I think of all that has happened to my hubbie and me in 35 years it is actually somewhat overwhelming. A lifetime of memories really. We were just kids and now....well, we're getting up there, haha...I am soo excited for you. Paris is one place I would honestly love to go. (Hawaii is another) ENJOY every moment of it and make more memories that you will carry in your heart forever. Love you, Deb

    14 days without you is long = ( but I forgive you, haha, you've had lots of reminders to take pics, so I won't say it again, haha, but I will pray for a safe and a wonderously memorable trip!
