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!
