lucky number 13

Sometimes I think about how young Mike and I were when we got married, or how we lived in different states for most of our courtship, or how, really, we hardly knew each other. And then I wonder why no one tried to persuade us from getting married. But it felt right then, and it still feels right today. Marrying Mike was the best decision I've ever made.

Happy 13th to us (yesterday)!


  1. Congratulations on your wedding anniversary!! ♥
    My husband and I will celebrate 13 years next year, so only 12 years for us this year and we are 57 and 49 years old, so we got a much later start ;)

  2. Congratulations!
    You are so inspiring to me. Everyday, when I am overwhelmed by raising the three boys I had in three years, when the volume gets so loud and the to-do list is calling, I think of your blog, how you embrace every part of motherhood, and I channel your peace. I know it sounds crazy, but I think of you everyday and imagine how you would handle whatever I'm facing. I am so grateful I found your blog!

    1. oh man, shelly, you are so nice! thank you!

    Love you both.
