This life of ours has been quite an adventure. And this list really doesn't do it justice:) I am so glad I get to do it all with you by my side Joseph! I love you...more today than I did on our wedding day (which I didn't think was possible then). God knew what he was doing when he put us together. 

Look at us. We were just a couple of kids! Sorry for the low quality picture. This was a pre-digital photo.  Funny thing.  Our photographer offered to take digital pictures.  And we declined.  Digital whats that?!  Even funnier.  Our friend made us a video slide show for our reception.  She offered to have it burned on a DVD.  We declined.  Yep it is on VHS:)  Come to think of it so is our video of our wedding ceremony! Might be time to dust those off for a viewing...

*Charlotte just looked at this picture of me and asked, "Is that you mommy? Because it looks like me. A princess."


  1. Congratulations on a very productive 10 years. I love Charlottes comment about the picture of you. My kids also think girls in dresses are Charlotte!

    1. Thank you. And she sure does like her dresses:)
