19 Years.....

19 years ago, I was a young bride of just 21. Brian and I were high school sweethearts who fell head over heels for one another. We got married two weeks after I graduated from college. Many people placed bets that our marriage wouldn't last. We heard how young we were over and over. We were young. We had no idea the journey that lay ahead of us. But we persevered. We fought back. And through it all, we remembered to laugh amongst the tears we shed. We managed to keep a sense of humor even in the bleakest of moments.
I know it is cliche to say that he is my best friend, or my soul mate, but honestly, he is.  He is my amazing person. The one I truly couldn't live without. We are older now.....a bit wiser, but still very much in love...
Even after 19 years......

Inspiring testimony of your marriage, Michelle. Btw, you look pretty much the same from your wedding photo. What's your remedy? :0)

Happy wedding anniversary. I too know what it is to have the love of a good man. Seems to be a rarity these days. We're married 30 years next year. Hope you had a lovely celebration and GOD BLESS you both.

Congratulations on your wedding anniversary. Thank you for sharing your photos. Hubby and I were high school sweet hearts too and it has been a wonderful 42 years for us. I know I love him more today than the day we married and I am sure you do too.
