Thirty-two Years and Counting

Today Steve and I celebrate thirty-two years of marriage.  We started dating as our high school graduation approached and married one week after graduating from college.

This is what we looked like in our dating days (circa 1980).

Our family grew in 1985 with the birth of our son Chris and expanded again in 1987 when our twins, Jon and Matt, were born.

We took our first cruise in 2006 to celebrate our twenty-fifth anniversary.  With us in the picture is our amazing server Virginia.

In recent years our family has grown rapidly as both twins married and became parents.

God has truly blessed us and our family.  We are grateful that God is the head of our household and that we can look back together on thirty-two incredible years as a family. We can’t wait to see what the coming years hold.  Through the good and bad, we will face all of life’s challenges together with God’s help.

Happy Anniversary, Steve.  I love you with all my heart!
