A Little Selfish Post!

OK so here is a little selfish post..

High School Sweethearts, Together since we were
16,17 years old- Graduating with a Baby Boy in arms,
Giving up a dream of becoming a Fireman to instead work full time to provide for us right out of high school,
Trading a Wedding to instead use the money we
saved up to buy our first home at 21
16 years together
12 years married
3 children
To be married to My Best Friend,who makes me laugh,encourages me and is pretty darn cute too.
I find I Love Him more & more each year, I do know how Lucky I am.
Happy 12th Anniversary Matt!!

  7. Happy Anniversary to you both! Loved this post! And I can not top what anyone else above my comment has posted. Just know you have many years ahead! I married my HS sweet heart as well, and now it has been 26 years together, and 24 married this August, three girls, all grown...we have been up and down on the roller coaster of life and have survived.Stronger, closer and more in love. Right now we are on the verge of being homeless...after already loosing our home to the bank, and though we are both scared that by October we could be in our cars with two cats to sleep at night, we do not care cause we have each other to hang onto ...and that is what counts in the end. You have that kind of love, and it is a blessing! Congrats again!

  8. How sweet and Happy Anniversary with many many more.

  9. Happy anniversary, you both look like your still in high school!!

  12. Happy Anniversary! What a great story and testament of love and family (and responsibility even)! I was born 2 months after my mom went to work as a carpet layer and eventually found his way to being a police office...they have been married almost 40 years now. I also have friends, graduated babe in arms...3 kids and 20 years later together. I love love!
