A mix of photography, recipes, personal thoughts, faith, and lots of family stuff, but not necessarily in that order.

On bended knee.....

38 years ago on April 4th, 1977 he asked me out for our first date, 
I was just 16

8 months later he asked me to his senior prom.

In July of 1981 (on bended knee) he asked me to marry him 
(No cell phone back then...so no selfies)
I said, YES!

9 months later I married him... 
best decision I ever made!

33 years ago today, 
I married a man of integrity who has always loved me for who I am.
 His love is unconditional and steadfast.
He is the most selfless being I know,
 a great role model and humble example for his children,
 who all bear the best qualities from their father.

We have been blessed with 33 years of marriage, learning to give and take, to pick our battles, to respect each other, to agree to disagree, to value each others opinions, and to go with the flow.  

I'm still confused how I ended up with this guy, 
I certainly never deserved him, but God knew different...

I'm thankful for this amazing man, my gift from God

I love doing life with you Rick, 
Happy Anniversary


  1. Great blog daughter.

  2. Congratulations on 33 years of marriage! This is a beautiful post that exudes your deep love for one another and your faith. God is pretty smart. I love the "vintage" photos. You look so happy.

  3. Thanks Audrey, Happy then.... Happy now :) If I can remember right yours is coming up soon as well.

  4. Aww, sweet blog about my sweet parents. I think you need to go back and edit this blog and include the time you saw him with the giant boom box, teehee. Glad you and Daddy have each other, you're a lovely match!

    1. Thanks honey...I'm glad we have each other too :)
