21 years and still counting!

It's my anniversary today. I've been married for 21 years! How time flies...
I was 21 years old but somehow I thought I was a lot older. Looking back, I see
I really wasn't that old - notice the pictures! If you want to take a look
back to the 80's, check these out!


Here's Dave and me. We look
like such young ones!















Walking in with my Dad.


































Here we are with
my Mom and Dad.

















Here's the wedding party. Can you find Mari and Cheri? Cheri is right next to me and Mari if at the end. My brother is also there. He is at the end of the line and he still looks the same today! My niece, Laura is the flower girl. (Notice how tan Cheri is? We had just gone on a cruise 1 month earlier and she kept her tan!)


We "celebrated" our anniversary last night. We went out for supper together. Tonight we get to enjoy our day by going to a tee-ball game! We won't even be sitting by each other because Dave is the coach. Is that sad or what but hey, there are things you have to do when you are parents and we're okay with it. Hope you enjoyed the look back.

Happy Anniversary! LOVE the flashback to the 80s - you were rockin! that cheri is sooo tan and HOW CUTE is Laura? I could pick them out easily but hey I am the missing sister!

That was great! I love all the pictures. I was wondering how Cheri was so tan until I read on. I was also trying to guess who the flower girl and ring bearer were. Then I realized that Andy probably wasn't born yet at this picture.
Happy Anniversary!
Smiles!

It is nice to hear that people actually make it a long time. For the 80's that dress sure was beautiful. Mari looks so young too. Glad you had a nice night out with eachother and then back to reality.

Wow, what a wedding! Those pictures speak volumes. Can you believe those dresses and back then we thought they were so great. Style changes...

Contratulations of your 21 years! You can be proud of your years together and I pray God continues to bless you and make your love for one another grow!

Happy Anniversary!

We celebrate our 20th in November. Our bridesmaids dresses are almost the same color! Mine were magenta. Must have been the shade of the 80's. I haven't seen magenta dresses since.
