Happy Anniversary To Us!

This Sunday, October 12th, will mark our 11th anniversary. If you had told me that I would be where I am today about 15 years ago, I would have looked at you like you were crazy. Without going into a lot of detail, I had a very messy, ugly divorce in 1996. I worked for a very successful divorce attorney and while my divorce turned out financially to my benefit, emotionally I was a total wreck. But that was then, and this is now!

If you would like to read my "love story" and how we met and came to be, you can read about it  here.   Our marriage has sometimes been a wild ride but I know my husband was a God send and I thank God for him every single day of my life. We had beach pictures made just prior to our wedding in Fairhope, Alabama. My two children and their spouses were included as it was a very intimate affair.

Here is one of my favorite photos from that day:

“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away."
1 Corinthians 13:4-8
Oh, and did I mention I am 12 years older than he is?!   That really bothered me at first, but no one thinks there is that much of an age difference between us....I tell him I married him so he can take care of me in my old age!

We have a big weekend planned (not really)!  Lots of football watching and maybe we'll sneak off for a special dinner.    We plan on taking a little get away in the near future as we always do around this time of year.

Hope you all have a fabulous weekend....and War Eagle!

A happy belated anniversary to you! I LOVED the story of how you two met. He definitely sounds like a keeper, and I cannot believe he is 12 years younger than you. OMG.
