11 years ago...

My last name changed.  I heard the words "for time and all eternity."  I left my home of 21 years, and made a new one.  My life changed forever.

Wedding picture

Eleven years ago, I don't remember thinking to myself,where will I be in eleven years?  What will my life be like?

All I remember is the excitement to be a new bride, a wife, and start our journey together.  Oh what a journey it has been.

If I would have taken the time to ask myself what my life would be like, I don't think I could have seen all of this.

I have been blessed beyond measure.

Family photo

I never could have fully comprehended how my love for Jonathan could be any more then what it was eleven years ago. But it is.

I now understand what it means to share my life with someone.  I don't think I understood that when I took those vows on May 20, 1999.

It has been a tremendous life.  I wouldn't trade any of it.

Together

Thank you for sharing it with me.

Kryta did a fantabulous job on your photos. Can I copy you on the one with all your legs with your baby at the bottom? I want to do that with my family. Too precious!

Your family photos are inspiring! They make me want a ton more kids (I only have 1. Sad.)

And your clothing choices are perfect! That's the hardest part of a good family photo.
