I can't believe that 16 years have gone by already. It really doesn't feel like it. I mean, when I was a kid it seemed like it took forever to turn 16. Then it took forever to turn 20. But these 16 years were fast. It is amazing to me that Tim and I were married 8 years before we had our girls and now we've been married 8 years with our girls. The first 8 years are a blur and it's difficult to remember how we spent our time. Sure we finished college, worked constantly, moved around a lot, and worked some more, but time seemed to fly. However, those first 8 years were life-changing. Three of those years we spent far away from all friends and family. God placed us in an amazing church with an amazing pastor. We were blessed to be surrounded by some great people that helped shape us as individuals, as a married couple, and as the parents we are now. I wouldn't change a thing. Not one thing. What a wonderful blessing it is to have a husband who is loyal, loving, God-fearing, honoring, funny, understanding, encouraging, supportive, a wonderful provider, an extraordinary father, the leader of our home, and it doesn't hurt that he's downright handsome. Happy Anniversary!
