16 years and going strong… June 11, 2008

Filed under: Family,Ramblings — Flour Girls & City Chicks @ 1:54 pm

Can you believe it? Yesterday Todd and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary! I know when we were married that many had their doubts that it would ever last. They said we were too young; but what did they know. I am not saying it has been the easiest thing either of us have ever done in our lives but I think that we both agree that we wouldn’t change a thing.

How have we managed to do it? We learned that we had to put each other first and foremost very early on. Only our two children have slots that walk side by side with us. One day new slots will open for the families they build. Until that day arrives we will continue to remain loyal only to each other and our family above all others. We have also learned to pick & chose our battles wisely. We basically decided that really there is nothing worth battling over. We just sometimes have to agree to disagree.

I was lucky to have found my soul mate so soon in life. Many people spend a lifetime searching for mister right. I hope when we reach the 50 year mark we can still say that we are madly in love with one another. I know I will keep working everyday to make sure it happens.

Hugs~ Christina

    Awesome post! I think there are blessings in getting married early in life…you build your life together instead of trying to ‘merge’ two separate lives. I think a life built together can be stronger if you are both committed to it. You are the loveliest family, I’m glad things are still going strong. Happy Anniversary!
