15 years married to my best friend

Today is our 15th wedding anniversary! How crazy is that!? It's hard to believe that we have been together for so long. I look at this photo and can't believe how young we were when we got married (and how skinny we were!), but I wouldn't change anything.

Last night we were talking with Jalen about being married for 15 years and I jokingly said '15 looooong years Jay' and then to get a laugh he says 'why don't you love Dad as much as he loves you Mum!?'.

He then came over and looked at the wedding photo as I was scanning it (as we WERE married in the dark ages, before digital cameras were around! ;) and said 'you looked so happy Mum, why aren't you anymore!?'. What a silly boy.

Jay loves stirring us, trying to get a laugh. Yesterday we got him to take these photos of us and he was cracking us up as he would say 'put your arm around her Dad', 'okay..now kiss, oh hang on...wait till I come around the back so I can get the sun shining through'.

Life is never perfect but as my Pop used to say 'you either keep holding hands or you will kill each other!' (Pop always had great words of wisdom:).

15 years ago I never could imagine our life now...I especially didn't imagine that we would have four boys. Over 16 years ago Aaron's sense of humor is what I liked about him and made me fall for the guy who my Dad said was 'just a boy', and today it's still one of the things that I love about him the most. Yesterday while we were taking these photos I said 'okay I'll jump on your back' and Aaron starts groaning and I was like 'what!?' and he then says 'well you aren't as light as you used to be!' (knowing he would get a laugh and a hit!).

I'm looking forward to the next 15+ years with my best friend.
