HAPPY ANNIVERSARY TO MY HONEY:)

OK, I did get permission from my husband to share some "vintage" photos from the past. He said no problem... although by the end I think he may be sorry that he gave me that permission. The kids and I have had some good laughs as we pulled some of these out:)


The one above was taken before his football banquet my Jr. year in College.
Can you say Mullet... or more like
Can you say... business in the front, party in the back...
Gotta love that skinny tie:) and crazy patterned dress...


This was taken at a fall dance at school... after his cancer.... just a couple of weeks after we got engaged:)
Now prepare your self for a freak show...
We still laugh hysterically when we see this photo...
This was our engagement photo...
This was the photo we put in the newspaper... are... you ... kidding... me???


I have the total 80's bangs and spiral perm going...
and let's just say Greg always says he just should have shaved his head when he had the cancer... It never grew back quite right:)
Really I can't believe I shared that... I wanted to give you all a good laugh I guess:)
Well, I woke up to the BEST anniversary present ever today!
And pretty much the rest of the day was spent trying to pack and get ready for our trip out of town...
Greg and I will hopefully get to celebrate the anniversary sometime while we are on vacation.
I am so incredibly blessed by my husband... God did make him for me. He is more patient than anyone I know. He has walked this journey of grief better than I ever could have imagined... Truly, I know many men would have had enough a looonnnnggg time ago... but not Greg, he is in it for the long haul... for better or worse. And let me tell you he handles the worse parts with great grace:) We have had our share of both... Praise God He has walked it all right along side of Greg and I.
I am so thankful that God saw fit to join us together 17 years ago today!
I am HUGELY blessed because of it!

Many blessings on your anniversary! These pictures are really cute - how young you both looked (and were). How wonderful that you are still so much in love!

Sara,
I love the walk down memory lane and the pictures are priceless. They serve as reminders of where God has brought you and can bring the laughs as to how we are glad some styles have been left in the past!! :) May God bless you with many more wonderful years together as He took two and joined you as one!

Love in Christ,
Stacy

Too cute! You must scan photos to have them digitally. Very smart.
