Celebrating 10 years!

Justin and I the summer of 1994:
Who knew.... that 15 years after this picture was taken.... that we would be celebrating our 10 year wedding anniversary! I will tell you who knew..... and that was God. He knew from the moment I was born... that there had to be someone special made and chosen, just for me. God knew that this man had to have the patience of Job, and a heart of gold. That special someone came into my life in 1992. At that time.... we were friends and nothing more. We travelled the stock show circuit, showing sheep... him placing his sheep and mine hitting the truck, EVERY time. It wasn't until May of 1994 that we decided to become more than friends. It was a decision that would change my entire life for the better. It would make me into the person I am today. Because of the example both sets of parents set for us..... we celebrate 10 years of marriage.

My mom, to this day, tells the story of our first date.... we were headed out the door and she said..... good luck Justin, she is a handful, but it she is worth it. Like me, she knows that God only created one person that could handle me..... and Justin is this person.

I can't imagine it any other way.....

He we are at his Senior Prom...
I found this today..... from our first anniversary as a dating couple.
And here is the one from our 10 year wedding anniversary.
Here is my favorite picture.... it is our first as husband and wife. September 4, 1999.
