25 yrs and counting.....

Hello faithful followers!  Today I am going to get a bit personal and share some joyous news with you!  Today, my husband and I celebrate our 25th anniversary! 

First,I want to share with you a layout I did of the 2 of us on our wedding day.  I think I had been scrapping less than 6 months when I did this. You can see I liked using pink right from the get go!  This was a lift of one of Gabi Pollacco's lovely layouts.

Now for the story behind these 2 small bottles of sparkling wine.......

On our wedding night, these 2 bottles of wine were waiting for us in our Honeymoon suite.  We decided right then and there that we would save them, and open them on our 25th Anniversary.  At the time, it seemed like 25 yrs was a lifetime away.  We had no clue how fast time would fly!  We both took our vows very seriously, and divorce was something that we both never considered as an option.  We have stuck together through thick and thin, good times and bad, sickness and in health. We have faced many challenges and we know that if it weren't for the fact that we both have a relationship with God, and that He is apart of our marriage, we would of become a statistic like many others.  
God has blessed us with 2 amazing children, Jerica is almost 22, and Jordan is 19.  Both kids love the Lord and we couldn't be more proud of them.  In 3 months, we will be adding another member to our family as Jerica marries her High School sweetheart, Jaret!  Exciting times to come!

So, tonight..... we will open our 2 bottles of wine[which are probably vinegar by now] and thank God for giving us 25 yrs!
