Remember when we hadn't even been married a year and we looked at the couples around us and thought 4 years was a long time?  Happy anniversary, Honey!  There is no one else I'd rather take this journey with.

Love this post. :) And....wow! 5 jobs, 14 cars, 7 houses?!

We've been married 17 years and I've had ONE job, we've lived in 3 houses (well, one was an apartment), and between the two of us we've had 7 vehicles. :)

Happy anniversary!
