Today Dan and I celebrated 8 years of marriage.

It's been a roller coaster ride.  Always exciting and sometimes scary, but I wouldn't want to do this with anyone else!

We share a lot of great memories even in the midst of a whole lot of hard times.  We've struggled through.  We've lost a child, had a miscarriage, a few job losses, financial hardships, blah blah blah.  But what we have that I love - strength to endure. Faith in God that pulls us through and guides us.  4 amazing children.  Laughter.  Sarcasm.  

We have learned that love is NOT a feeling!  It is a choice!  Some days that choice is harder than others, but it is ALWAYS worth it!


I love you!
