A peek inside our wedding album

The last few posts have been on the heavier side so how about we lighten it up a bit by taking a trip down memory lane to my wedding day. With less than three months until the day when my husband and I renew our vows to celebrate 25 years of marriage, I reflect on this day a lot.

We were oh so young 25 years ago . . .

My parents. And my beautiful mother actually made the dress she wore.

We have referred to our wedding as the "big hair wedding" and this reveals why. 

My grandma, who we miss so very much.

I do not plan to wear heals this time around!

Too funny (notice the exit sign) . . . probably one of hubs favorite pictures. Hehe.

My husband with his parents. His mother is also missed dearly.

Reverend Russ Koenig (on the left) also married my parents. He too is missed.

One of my favorite pictures. Our oldest son was 4 months old when we married.

A gorgeous fall day!

Our wedding party.

Toyota Jump! Another favorite of my husbands.


These ten fabulous ladies are still dear friends of mine.

My absolute favorite picture from our wedding day.
I love that my favorite picture looks rather similar to the photo taken when I welcomed my husband home from Afghanistan. The kiss above is the beginning of our life together and the kiss below led us to the decision to renew our vows. The ten months apart taught us what a precious gift God has given us . . . each other! To express our gratitude we want to say before Him, and also before our family and friends, "We Still Do."

We will do the whole deployment thingy again soon which is the main reason we are renewing our vows in September instead of October. We married in October 1990. Can I just say, preparing for a second deployment does not feel easier. But we can do all things through him who gives us strength (Philippians 4:13).

If you're a new visitor, you can watch my husband's first welcome home here.

Thank you, friends, for your love and support! You are a blessing to me.
