Adventures of Motherhood

I am a harried mother of three kids who move at light speed and a husband who lives in a world of words. If that isn't enough, I teach in an elementary school as I slowly watch my hair turn gray.

22 years!!

22 years ago Carmi and I started dating. We don't celebrate like we did before we go married but we always like to remember it. It's hard to believe that we've been together that long. It amazes me how much our lives have changed and grown. We've gone from being someone's child, a girlfriend/boyfriend, and students to being a husband/wife, parents, professionals. We've moved away from the only place we've ever known and have made a life for ourselves.

Over the last 22 years, some things have not changed. We are still best friends, we can still make each other laugh and still can drive each other crazy.

Some things have changed. We can now finish each other's sentences andif you know Carmi, than you know that can be scary :>, we've grown from a young couple, to a young family, to a family with children not so young ) : and most of all as each passing year goes by, we love each other even more than the year before.

Congrats to you and Carmi!! You two seem way to young to be married for that long! And it is truly wonderful to see a couple still uplifting and treasuring one another after that long!
