Yesterday, May 16th, was our 13 year anniversary.  I can’t believe it!!  Some days it seems like only yesterday we got married and then other days it seems a lot longer. Winking smile

We started dating around 1996 and then in 1998 we got married.  Everyone says we look like such babies, and I guess we were.  We were 22 years old when we got married.  If you think about it, in the old days we would have been considered old at that age.

We have been through a lot and most of it has been good.  If you know that your marriage is worth it, then you have to stand and fight for it.  You have to work at making it something special, to make sure you appreciate each other and let the other one know that you do.  (as my hubby says, “I’m not a mind reader”)

Sometimes things can get a little old, like you’re roommates, so you need to work on focusing on each other again, not the daily stuff, although that is important, but so is your spouse.  Your children are also important but they also need to learn that as parents, we need to spend time with each other without the children.  When they get older they will remember that and hopefully apply that to their relationships as well.  Children are very important but when you focus on them and hardly ever on your spouse then that is not a good thing either.

Anyways… this post didn’t go as planned… lol 
Just wanted to say that we were married 13 years ago and that I am so happy I married my best friend!  It is so nice to find that perfect someone to annoy for the rest of your life!!  Winking smile

Love ya Shane and I am so proud to call you my husband!!!

Congrats! You could link this to Memory Lane Friday on Friday if you wanted!
I actually had a craft up yesterday I could link with Crafty Tuesday - but I didn't see it? My google reader has been screwed up since the big meltdown on Friday though, so I'll go look for it now in case I missed it.
