Fifteen Wonderful Years

Fifteen long, wonderful years. We have had our share of amazing memories! Six children, many ups and downs, but so many wonderful years!


Fifteen years ago today, Todd and I got married. We were high school sweethearts. I knew when I met Todd that we would be together forever. Here is a snapshot from the reception at the hotel. We had a wonderful reception at The Desmond in Albany.
The day we got married, we were in the midst of a heat wave. It was 98* the day we got married. Super hot for Upstate NY. The day was a whirlwind of everything a girl could dream of. I still have the man of my dreams, but he has grown up (a little) to the man whom I adore!
Note the poofy sleeves that coordinate with my early 90s (reminents of big 80s) hair.


I made a little frame for him for his desk at work. I thought it would be nice - I love this set from Papertrey ink. It is such a perfect sentiment - Life is not measured by how many breaths you take, but by the moments that take our breath away. I did some more Zindorf brayering on this (same supplies as yesterday). I was drawn to this by my friend Michelle (MY) who showed me a few of her brayered creations. She warned me that once I start Zindorf brayering, I might not be able to stop! It is fun!

flowers arrived late this afternoon
He is such a romantic! There were 15 red roses.
I didn't expect anything. I better go take some more cold medicine, I am sure that there will be some snuggling tonight and I don't want to be all stuffy!

Awww... this is so sweet! Happy Belated anniversary, Beth! You look like such a pup in that wedding pic (of course, you're even more gorgeous now, but I love to see pictures of pals from their wedding days who have been married a while). My DH and I are celebrating our 15th next month. '93 was a pretty good year, huh?!
