24

It seems surreal that today is my husband and my 24th wedding anniversary.  It was a cold December night 24 years ago (so cold it actually caused one of the glass hurricane lanterns my Bridesmaids were carrying to shatter from temperature change when she entered the warm church...yep, it was cold!) When I walked down that gorgeous church aisle to meet the young man of my dreams we were just babies. I know that I didn't realize how much he truly was the man of my dreams then (I had some growing up to do before I fully understood that!)

We have traveled a pretty winding road these last 24 years.  We have lived in 4 different states, owned 7 different houses and have been blessed with 3 amazing children.  Somehow over the last 24 years we created a family and joined two separate families together forever.  That is truly a God thing.

Unfortunately, he is out of town today so we won't be spending this day together but he showered me with love...and 24 roses (and some pretties from Lilly Pulitzer..see he is a keeper!)...this past weekend. So, even though I am missing him today,  I pray for at least another 100 years together and I thank God for the man He created for me!   

And above all these put on love,
which binds everything together in perfect harmony.
Colossians 3:14 (ESV)
