Our Eleventh Anniversary

Thursday, November 1st, 2018


On October 19th we remembered 11 years of marriage. I did not however remember to post a thing about it. We were out camping with the babies on that day. They entertained us with “spooky stories” as we all sat around a fire in the dark. And that was just fine with us.

God has been good to us in these 11 years. We have so much to thank Him for.


The Date Nights

There are so many reasons to be thankful that Phil and I got out of debt very early in our marriage. One reason that reaps rewards most often is our ability to go out together, bash around town enjoying good food, entertainment of course each other. I’m so grateful for a husband who makes this happen and also of course for the kind people who are able and willing to watch our babies for us while we do these funsie things together.

“Dates” do not need to be out on the town or even that fancy to be enjoyable. We also have many “dates” right in our own kitchen, grilling steaks and opening wine after the babies are down. The important thing to us is being able to spend some time together just the two of us.

Celebrating TEN Years

Tuesday, October 31st, 2017


“If ever two were one, then surely we. If ever man were loved by wife, then thee. If ever wife was happy in a man, Compare with me, ye women, if you can. Thy love is such I can no way repay; The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray. Then while we live, in love let’s so persevere, That when we live no more, we may live ever.” Anne Bradstreet

 We rejoice and thank God for the 10 years of marriage He has given us. To celebrate we took several days over a couple weeks to enjoy some outings together. I’d been pretty sick but God was good to allow me to feel so much better on each of the days we were out.
