Eight Years Ago....


Eight years ago today Hubby and I were married in a beautiful little town in southeast Ohio. OK, it's my hometown, so I'm a little biased, but it is a pretty little place. Eight years ago we had zero responsibilities, other than the three cats we owned. Here we are eight years later, exhausted but happy.
Our wedding was the definition of us: no frills but lots of fun (although if you ask my parents, who footed the bill, they would probably question my "no frills" description). Rather than a big fanfare, we simply had fun with family and friends who we rarely can see all at once.
Little did we know, as we took our vows for better or worse, that we would put those vows to the test as we struggled to start a family. When we promised to stand by one another in sickness and in health Hubby had no idea that meant he would have to nurse me through 23 weeks of bed rest. The rich or poor part? It all depends on how you look at it... financially, well, with four children all the same age, you do the math... but we're certainly rich with love, hokey as it sounds.
If you had told us eight years ago what life would be like, I don't think we could have even imagined it... but here we are, and life is good. Happy anniversary!!! (The picture was the best I could do. I couldn't find any digital images from our wedding so I had to settle for a picture of a picture)
