Happy Anniversary!

14 years today!

Dan I love you more with each passing year! Truly...we were chosen for each other.

(photo by E11- how do you like my mom to fourth tee?)

Who knew stamped metal could be so romantic?

He also managed to be sure all the kids were represented. Many letters for many initials.

Here it is! I'm sporting the Dan side today. If you like my new necklace it's a Lisa Leonard Design custom necklace. So fun!
For my part, I replaced Dan's Timex Expedition watch which I washed twice in two weeks and for the record, it's still ticking but it's missing a knob and I can't get the backing back on. I felt slightly responsible, though after 14 years and washing watches multiple times you'd think he'd stop putting them in his pocket. I seriously considered a cheaper water proof version, but you know...there's only so many times a wife can wash one, two, well ahem...three watches in a man's life time. Here's to hoping the next 14 are more kind to Dan's timepieces!

Today we'll have yummy jambalaya- a favorite of Dan's and we'll shop for a new minivan...What?! More on that one later...

Dan, I love you!

And I have that necklace! Only mine doesn't say "All my love forever, Dan" LOL

Sheri said...

Oooh I can't resist: Timex, it keeps a lickin' and keeps on tickin'!

And what a day to get married. Right before Christmas! (You got married exactly one month after me...well one month and four years)

Congratulations! We'll celebrate 11 years in June, and I'm HOPING for a Lisa Leonard necklace. Just have to have this third baby before then so we'll have the right name/initials! ;-)

14 years...is it possible? How I remember that snowy/icy Sat...a beautiful wedding with the Christmas decorated church and a beautiful bride. I thank the Lord for a dear daughter-in-love who loves our son so much and is such a wonderful mother to four beautiful grandchildren. Of course, I'm not partial or anything! smile
love, Grandma

I am lusting for your necklace, well, mine would say from Paul etc. You get my drift.

I don't wash watches so much as chapstick!

I like your mom to the fourth tee... where did you pick that up?
Congrats on the anniversary!

Heather said...

Thanks ladies!

The Mom 4 tee came from the MOPS International Convention in the fall.

Let me see if I can find out the name of the vendor.
