Celebrating 17 Years

On Saturday Bill and I celebrated our 17th wedding anniversary. 
We both got up early---Bill, because his internal clock is just set that way---and me, because I was taking Mary to her track meet with the Junior Olympics.  We had a long, busy day ahead of us.

Mary--track meet
Ann--first day of instructional field hockey
Billy--make-up baseball game
Tommy--birthday party
Big Bill--return suit pants/cut the grass.
Kathleen--shop for Father's Day gift
(Matt....along for the ride)
Family--graduation party.

We handled the day like champs....divide and conquer. It went smoothly and we met up for the last hour of the graduation party.

It was definitely not a typical anniversary with dinner and a side of romance.  But I couldn't help but be thankful for being where we are.... for this life we've created together. (with help from above, of course).  When I dreamed as a little girl what married life would be like, it was just as it is right now. 

I couldn't be more happy with my partner in crime. 

 Happy Anniversary, Bill.


  1. Congratulations to you two love birds!! May you continue to use the grace that God gave you on your wedding day. Many blessings to you both!

  2. Hi Kathleen! I just love your wedding photo, and I want to see more of them!! Happy Anniversary to both of you. Actually, I think your anniversary day was spent like most people who have been married for as long as you guys. Busy, busy, busy raising your kids and celebrating life's milestones (parties and sports) and supporting friendships.

    That's a perfect way to spend the day :)

  3. Happy anniversary!! Love your wedding picture!

  4. Aw. That story just gave me hope.
    Happy anniversary to you both.
