16 Years

16th Anniversary
OK this is not about Alaska, so forgive me if you are wanting to read about our new great state.  John and I will be celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary on Friday, June, 15.  John is super excited about this anniversary because the number 16 is a perfect square, nerd.  I did not have any idea what to get him for putting up with me for 16 years, so after listening to one of our favorite singers, Ben Folds, I got an idea!  I decided to make this slide show of our life over the last 16 years.  Cheesy, I know, but well...I am pretty cheesy.  If you decide to watch the video, I hope that it inspires you to appreciate the love in your life, or perhaps inspire you to make a meaningful relationship with someone.  I also want to say that if you fall in love with someone, why wait, get married and build a life together.  John was 22 when we married and I was 19.  We were young and stupid, but we were sure that our love was real.  The last 16 years have not been perfect and as a couple we have faced many hardships, but our love has been perfect and our faith in God strong!


  1. So, I'm a little late on reading this and watching the video. But, it's beautiful Misty, what an awesome gift!!! I cannot believe you and John have been married for 16 years! Congratulations to you both!

  2. Oh, Misty...I haven't seen you and John since we were all kids in school. Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful history with the rest of us! What a sweet, sweet gift. Happy (belated) anniversary to you both!!!
