It's Our Turn! is the day. Our 15th anniversary. Can I just tell you how shocking that is? I am in shock that 15 years has passed and I am not sure how it happened. Even though so much has happened in those 15 years, it seems like it has gone by in a blur!

We went through the exact same stuff that Tim & Reese went through. People really don't believe that you can get married at 17 and that it can work. It's been hard, the first 7-10 years were constantly rough, but that was because we were both still growing up while trying to raise three babies of our own. I am so thankful to be where we are today. Without God right in the middle, we would not be here.

We are heading away on Saturday, for only one night away, but we need it, and I am thrilled to spend some time with my hubby! Thank goodness for Grandmas :)

I had wanted to share some pictures from years gone by, but our scanner is not hooked up and lately my time at the computer is a luxury.

Here's one from last year, right before I went to see Reese.

  1. Congratulations, you guys! I'm so happy for you two. Enjoy your night away. I pray that God richly blesses the next 15 years and takes you beyond what you ever dreamed possible for yourselves as a couple and for your family.

    We love you!

  2. That's amazing and ironic that two friends would both get married so young.

    Congrats and many more!!!

  3. Congratulations! That's awesome that you get a night away, too! Enjoy your time together.

  4. Congratulation!!!
    Have a wonderful weekend, and may you always remember why you chose to be married. <3

  5. Congratulations! 15 years is a wonderful milestone to reach. I wish you happiness for your next 15 + 15 more after that. :-)

    As for people not believing that a marriage starting at age 17 can last, I think that is because we just don't see it often enough. Too many people in our society put themselves first in marriage, which doesn't work well. Plus, to many people, no matter what their age, just plain don't want to work at marriage. They want it to be easy. Good for you for making it work, and for learning that God needs to be in the middle.
