It Happened 14 Years Ago


Happy Anniversary

to us

Fourteen years ago today, this trapping-hunting crazy man caught his prey.  He threw me over his shoulder and yelped, “Yee-Haw!  I got me a woman.”

Today I woke up to sunflowers on my kitchen island and this message on my facebook wall.

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BABY – 14 years already! I truly love YOU more than life itself. Looking forward to many more years together!

I hear the collective “Awwwww”.

Tonight we get to go out by ourselves.  Friends are watching our kids.  (Thank YOU friends!)  I’m not even sure where we are going yet, but I promise you I’ll enjoy it.

If you’ve never read our love story, I wrote it here.

I pray I get to enjoy many more anniversaries with FringeMan.

P.S.  My daughter just looked at the picture and said, “Aww, somebody just got married.”

Um, ya, that’s me and your father.



  1. Happy Anniversary! May you have many more!

  2. Happy Anniversary! Wishing you many, many more. :)

  3. This post is pure sweetness. Happy Anniversary to the FringeMan & Wife :)

  4. Happy Anniversary! I love your daughter’s comment. A friend of mine hung her wedding photo in the hallway of her house and when her daughter walked by she asked, “Who’s that lady in the picture with Daddy?” We still crack up about that one!

    Enjoy many more!

  5. Love that picture!! Too cute!

    Happy Anniversary!!

  6. CONGRATULATIONS! 14 years is an accomplishment! I think you’ll have to be my go-to for marriage advice!
    ps, Hubby and I have a pick like that, with him carrying me. Then at one point I totally slumped over and played dead and the photographer caught it. It looks like I’m being kidnapped.

  7. Happy Anniversary! Kids never realize their parents were young until they are old, too. By then they have their own kids who don’t realize their parents were young at one time.

    Did that make sense?


  9. Happy Anniversary! Have a great date. :) :)

  10. I love that picture and I love what FringeMan said. Here’s to many many more. Happy Anniversary.

  11. Happy Anniversary! Hope ya’ll really enjoy your night out! : )

  12. Happy Anniversary!!

  13. Happy Anniversary! And your daughter: Crack. Me. Up. Sounds like my kids. Enjoy your time ALONE! WHEEEE!

  14. Happy Anniversary! I hope the day is full of fun surprises that remind you why you fell in love in the first place! :-)
