Happy Day

Notice the big knife...hehe...I was just jokin' around before cutting my birthday cake. :)

It's our wedding anniversary today. Wedded bliss! It's amazing to think how much has changed in 14 years. Wow! Although some things have changed the love has remained. The dedication to our family is foremost. We are flawed and we don't always get it right but we do keep working to make our marriage better.

We are now a family of 7.

We went from 700 sq. ft. house to 2000 sq. ft.

We became Orthodox.

Cam was working in a saw mill and we were both students.

We have since earned 2 BA (one each) degrees and one MS (Cam).

We each traveled to Africa.

We have mellowed.

We have grown in our love.

Cam convinced me to drink red wine and I convinced him to eat shrimp.

We have worked side by side on many home projects...and have learned it's better to work on our own. :)

We have seen each other through many hard times dealing with Tuba's seizures.

We have laughed through the years.

We have seen the good, the bad and the ugly in each other.

We have been on many fabulous vacations...All over Washington, B.C. Canada, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Maui HI, California, Arizona, and our favorite summer ritual to Oregon coast.

We are very different people and yet the same people we were 14 years ago. We have made each other stronger. Cam makes me want to be a better person. He inspires me and and has taught me so much.

I look forward to many, many more years together.


  1. Just stopping by for a visit :) Your family is so beautiful. I am very happy for you and your husband...keep the faith, and keep raising your children for the Lord!

  2. I loved this!
    Also - where you wrote that you have mellowed, I thought it said that you have meowed. I had to read it 3 times. haha!
    Happy anniversary!

  3. Happy Anniversary! Y'all are too cute for words!

  4. Yes, congratulations you two (or you seven to be really truthful) and the whole family applauds your perseverence, your dedication, your humor and your generosity. We (your extended family) are fortunate to have you together, making the world a better place.
