14 Years Ago

Fourteen years ago, I  married that man to the left.  The day we married, we had no idea what the future held -- we only knew that we wanted to find out together.

Sitting here today, I realize that I still have no idea what the future holds, but I still want to find out with Bo at my side.

We have sold businesses, made a cross-country move, had three children, suffered a miscarriage, built a house, traveled, changed jobs countless times, grieved the loss of family members, had ups and downs financially, dealt with illnesses, and lived life.

Through it all, we have been at each other's side. I know that I can count on him no matter how wonderful or awful things might be. Together we are stronger than apart, and I couldn't have chosen a better partner for my life.

I could have chosen a few different pictures, but I like this one.  On top of being a super-terrific husband, he is an absolutely fantastic father. He may have thought he only wanted one child when we got married, but I know that today he couldn't dream of a life without all our children.  He is devoted to them, and is the type of father who does everything with them and for them.

Today, I wish him a Very Happy Anniversary!  I'm looking forward to the next 14 years . . . and then the next 14 . . . and the next 14 . . . and so on.


  1. Beautiful post Melanie. I am so happy for both of you! [and I LOVE that photo too - it wouldn't be nearly so effective if it were a slick professional pic!].
