11 Years ago...

Eleven years ago today...my wonderful hubby and I became husband and wife! We had a beautiful "private island" wedding. No...we didn't go to Hawaii. We went to Minnesota! We met at a beautiful summer camp where we both served as counselors. This camp is on a small island in the middle of one of Minnesota's beautiful lakes. We were able to hold our wedding on the island. We decided not to hold our wedding in the chapel, we walked out of the chapel, and down the hill onto the beautiful lawn. The weather was BEAUTIFUL...just a tad windy. During the wedding, we could look through the trees to see the water. There was a fisherman in his boat just off shore. My mom said she prayed the whole service that he wouldn't "gun" his engine and make a lot of noise...he stayed put until the service was over (how nice of him!!).

Warren, thank you for loving me. Thank you for being patient with me these past 11 years. Thank you for thinking I'm beautiful. Thank you for the fun, laughter, and good times. Thank you for being there in the tough times, for holding me and letting me cry on your shoulder. Thank you for being such a great dad to our little blessings. Thank you for being a man of God that I can look up to, respect, and be proud of. I love you! I thank God for you, every single day. You are the most wonderful blessing that God has given me, and I cherish you.
