19 Years and Still Going Strong Babe – We Rock

At the risk of sounding pretentious, I married my soul-mate 19 years ago today.

19 years

228 Months

988 Weeks

6935 days

166,440 Hours

3,994,560 Minutes

239,673,600 Seconds

Anyway you look at it, it's been a long time. But it's gone by fast.

We’ve done a lot:

11 kids

1 Donk

1 hospital birth, 2 birthing center births and 8 home births

50,000+ Diapers

99 months of pregnancy (you did)

120 months of breast feeding (once again you)

50 years of homeschooling (you again)

1 kid in college

1 heading to seminary in the fall

10’s of thousands of dollars spent on food

3 houses lived in

12 cars/vans

3 major career changes

1 Beautiful Wife

Priceless!



I can honestly say that I love you way more today than I did on our wedding day.
Year by year it just keeps getting better and better with you.

Thanks for marrying me. You complete me and make me a better person. Plus I’d probably be dead if I hadn’t met you.

I figure we got another 50 years in us.

Love,

Your true BFF

Ps – this post is taking the place of an anniversary card – do you know how much Hallmark wants for cards these days?

The world is a glorious place when you are lucky enough to find your other spirit. What a gift. May the next 50 be even more grand. All the best to you both on this happy occasion and always. Love, Auntie Ags and her precious other spirit, Uncle Mike

I really think, and tell you once again that Sam is without a doubt your Muse. Read that post! Brilliant!
Soul-mate, that's the keyword, I like this word!
I wish you another 50 years you asked for , to improve this deep love if it is possible.
No joke on that subject. Admiration.
