11.11.2015 Happy Anniversary to us!
Boyfriend, we’ve been through it, haven’t we?
Crazy us, wed in a tepee!
We’ve been up, down, sideways, inside-out but we always end up standing…
We’ve seen broken necks and halo braces,
Buckskin leathers and pretty laces.
We’ve had famine and feast,
Goats, turkeys, and a rooster beast.
We’ve seen beauty from ashes,
Survived a few wild bashes.
We’ve turned our messes and groanies,
Into praise and testimonies.
To say life is interesting is an understatement,
But, I’m glad to me, God sent…
Two people are better than one. When two people work together, they get more work done. Ecclesiastes 4.9
A teepee? Would live to hear that story! Congrats.
Oh sister…it’s not as crazy as you would think!!! xo
Marni nicholas says
Happy anniversary!!! Whew!!!! Tepees to testimonies, love that.
And, you’ve been a major part of the journey!!!
Kathy Walters says
Love it love it love it! (AND LOVE THE TWO OF YOU!)
And, that feeling is mutual!
Much love to you both & Happy Aniversary! xox
And much love in return!
What a trip down memory lane! My old backyard and the teepee! Mom looked so young and beautiful. Michael was causing trouble walking you down the aisle (grass) … it was a good day wasn’t it? Memories, some good, some bad but my Father knew each one of them and still watches and knows and laughs and smiles and still dances over us each morning.
And, probably shakes His holy head a few times at us too!!! xo

Beautiful, poetic love language words! We are so blessed by our Heavenly Father with our “good egg” husbands…many blessings to both of you on your anniversary!

Happy Anniversary! Love you guys! Gotta hear bout that teepee : )
You don’t know the tepee story? Oh my dear…
Now I get the tepee reference I’d almost forgotten. I’m trying to make your photos bigger so I can see them! 31 years is great. You two are only a little behind us! I guess Lynne hold the record!? Congrats and MANY more

Thank you, Mary, we did! We both worked and got take-out for supper! #romantic
Happy anniversary! Such a lovely poem and an inspiration that you’re still going strong. I hope my husband and I are as happy when we’ve been together many more years. You’ve given me the idea to write something for him, so thanks for that, too!
