9 Years and holding


Jeremy & Heather
May 19, 2000

We've been up, we've been down, and all things in between... but it's been fun and for the most part entertaining, like the time you skipped church, got a ticket, and stuck it in the hymnal for me to find? Awesome.

Our life is far from picture perfect. We've taken some unconventional routes, and we may be far from what some people deem as successful but we've found plenty of joy in the journey. We have a long way to go, but look at how far we have already come. I can't think of anyone I'd rather be cleaning up pukey kids, sheets, and beds with at 2:24 am the morning of our anniversary.
Here's to us....
and the life we've created thus far.

{our perfectly imperfect family, this sums it all up}


I Love You, Jer!

Happy Anniversary! I think your life is about as successful as they come....:)

You guys are a great pair and it's good that you can both laugh about things together and not take life too seriously. Hope you have a fantastic (and no more puke to clean up) Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! Sounds like you had some bonding time last night. I think there's a rule somewhere out there that you can't get the pukey's in May. What's up with the flu going around????

Congratulations on 9 years! Your 2:24 AM date sounds so romantic. . .

Stephanette said...

Yay! Happy anniversary. I hope the puke ended as quickly as it began. Success is highly subjective - I think you've made it

Happy Anniversary you guys! We are huge fans of your family--you guys are awesome. That picture cracks me up because we have many a picture like that. Nothing says I love you like 2:20 in the morning cleaning up pukey kids.

Kris said...

What a cute family you have! I love the picture. Happy 9 years of wedded bliss. Hope the kids start to feel better soon!

Happy anniversary! So did you get some pottery as a gift? (That's supposed to be the 9 year gift. Yeah, who wants pottery?)

Holly said...

Congrats!! I wish I knew you two better. I think we'd have fun. (we celebrated your anniversary the same way...)

Congrats a few days late! I think it's a special blessing to be able to look back and know things didn't happen as planned, but you are happy for the progress you are making! Keep it up!

You guys are awesome!

For how unromantic it was to be cleaning up pukey kids, sheets and beds at 2:24am, it sure brought tears to my eyes to think of the love and consideration you have for each other. Hope you had a great anniversary.
