Fourteen years ago...


On this day, fourteen years ago, I married my sweet husband, Brian (aka Firehubby)

We’ve walked an incredible journey together from that day and we continue looking forward:

For better
(Times are wonderful, established job, kids who sleep well, dates with my hubby)

For worse
(Can you say PMS…nuff said)

For richer
(Thankful we have “recession proof” jobs, being a firefighter and a nurse)

For poorer
(When Brian transitioned from being a writer to a firefighter things got a bit scary)

In sickness
(Praying for Brian’s ear injury)

Or in health
(Thank you Mayo for giving me my future back)

To love
(and oh how I do love him)

And to cherish
(We grow closer all the time)

…'till death do us part.

I love you Brian.

Congratulations to two of my favorite bloggers.. and if I knew you IRL..I feel sure that you would be two of my favorite PEOPLE. (starting a slow clap.. the crowd picks up the beat) Wishing you many, many more beautiful years together to continue to live out your vows. (and the crowd lifts Julie and Brian on their shoulders and carries them triumphantly out of the stadium, all the while singing "We Are the Champions"...)

Congratulations you two! This was wonderfully written, especially the "for worse" part! Loved it!

I'm not sure why you weren't able to view my blog, but I'm glad you finally got back on! Thanks for the note! I've missed not having the time to visit everyone. Real life has been getting in the way of my online time =).
Great to hear from you!

Happy (belated) anniversary Julie! Love what you said about PMS! I bet we could swap stories. I'm convinced I'm married to the most patient man on the planet but I'm sure you could say that too!
I'm just now catching up with you! It's been busy around here and commenting has taken a backseat:) I'm slowing working my way through my google reader but it's taking me days!
