Happy Love Day, Honey!

Today is our 18th wedding anniversary. I have now known my husband longer than I did not know him. We actually went to youth group together when I was in the 9th grade but didn't start dating until my senior year. We dated for four years before getting married in 1990.
We went to my senior prom together. The theme was from the movie "Stand by Me". We worked in youth ministry together the entire time we dated.
We have been through a lot in these 18 years. Many ups and many downs. Thank you God for blessing us with each other and our family. Here is to another 18 years babe!

Happy Anniversary! Congratulations on 18 years. It is amazing to think that you have now been together longer than you weren't. God is good and he honors those who honor Him and you and Curtis have done a great job of that! I wish you many more years together. We love you guys!

It's been a privilege to watch your marriage grow over the years.
