Black and White Wednesday ~ 15 Years

Fifteen years ago today Matt and I said "I do." I remember the day like it was yesterday. We were married in the courthouse by a judge because on March 7 Matt was leaving for basic training and we wanted to get married before he left. I was terrified, but knew we were doing the right thing.

These past years have been filled with laughter, tears, hope, fear, peace, frustration, excitement, disappointment, relief, sadness, anger, relief, forgiveness, anticipation, surprises, optimism, remorse, love, satisfaction, stress, panic, pride, fun, hurt, care, confusion, passion, security, and so much more.

We are by no means a perfect couple (sorry to disappoint). We fight, we make up. We make mistakes, we apologize. We laugh with each other (and sometimes at each other), we cry with each other. We may not always agree with each other, but we always support each other. We are there to listen to each others hopes, fears, and dreams. We are there for the good times, and the bad. We know that no matter what we can count on each other even when we can count on no one else.

Matt is my rock, he is my everything. I cannot imagine my life without him. He has allowed me to grow into the person I am today. He has helped me obtain my dreams. He encourages me like no one else can. He is a wonderful father and works very hard to provide for his family. But above all that, he loves me like no one else does.

In 15 years we have been through a lot. We have lived apart, we have in different states and even a different country. We are soon going to be the parents of 5 kids. Never in a million years did I think I would have 5 kids (who knows, maybe we will add one more). I look forward to the next 15+ years to see what they bring for us. I know that as long as Matt is there beside me to hold my hand and kiss me good night, it can only bring good things.

Happy Anniversary, Matt, I love you more and more each day.

Just to let everyone know, there has been another donation made to the fundraising site so hop on over and check it out.

What a great picture of you and your "rock." Sweet sweet words too ;)

TanyaLea said... cute! Happy 15 years! We celebrated the same back in December. And like you, I cannot imagine anyone else who I'd rather have beside me in the next 15! We are both so very blessed!!

To answer your question, I'm thinking you meant TA and not LOA, as we had that back in January. But our agency suspects we should have our TA in a few weeks, traveling in April. Originally they thought end of March, but our NVC letter took quite awhile to get here, so that set us back a bit. All of our papers are in GZ right now and hopefully our Article 5 will be done and sent up to CC*A soon. I'll keep ya posted! How about you?...where are things? Any word on your TA yet? Is your Article 5 done? Who knows...maybe we'll be in China at the same time!! :)

surprised. Since then, I have made a promise that everyone I know will
