13 Year Wedding Anniversary

Today Danny and I are celebrating our 13th wedding anniversary. I still remember every little detail of July 19th, 2003 like it was yesterday.   I will never forget the minute they opened the church doors and I saw Danny for the first time that day standing at the end of the aisle waiting for me.

On July 19th, 2003…

I walked down the aisle to the man that I was going to spend the rest of my life with.

I married the man that would be my lifelong best friend.

I married the man that I would wake up to everyday.

I married the man that I am forever thankful to God that I met on March 4th, 2003.

I married the man that would be the father of our two beautiful girls.

I married the man that would be the Godly leader of our family.

I married the man that I would share a lot of laughs and tears with.

I married the man that I would go on vacations around the world with and make so many memories with.

I married the man that always loves me no matter how mad I make him.

Danny I love you more everyday and I am so thankful that you chose to marry me on July 19th, 2003.

  1. Happy anniversary! I love all the pictures and how you transformed from a beautiful couple to an adorable family. I hope you have a great day celebrating, and many, many more years together!

  2. Would you believe it?!! It’s our 13th wedding anniversary too! Guess what day we were married? 13th July 2003! Isn’t that something. I clicked over from #TuesTalk when I saw the title of your post and I couldn’t believe when I read it.
    I love what you’ve done with this post. I’d been toying with writing a post around the time of our anniversary too. The way you did this I immediately felt like I had a glimpse into your last 13 years. You have such a beautiful family.
    Congratulations and happy anniversary! Wishing you continued blessings.

  3. Okay, I’m laughing at myself here. The number 13 was buzzing in my head. I meant to say that we were married on 19th July 2003 — the exact same day as you. My husband would laugh at me for getting that wrong. 🙂

    1. Wow! We are always looking for people that have the same anniversary as us. We actually ate dinner beside a couple that was celebrating their 57th wedding anniversary on Tuesday. I hope you and your husband had a wonderful anniversary!!

  4. Happy Anniversary! So many great memories to be thankful for. I am thankful for your love of family, your great big heart for your kids and for your blog. Thanks for linking today. Always such a pleasure to get a glimpse into your life. Will be sharing this on Instagram to kick off the Thankful Heart party.
