Seventeen? Has it been seventeen years already?

You know how the old saying goes... Time files when you are having fun.
Never has that been truer than when I think about how fast the last seventeen years has gone by.  It was seventeen years ago today that I was suiting up in a tuxedo, the Mother of Five was getting all gussied up in a BEAUTIFUL dress - our family and friends were gathering, the food was being prepared, the cake was getting set up, the photographer was getting ready, and this day would soon become one of the most memorable and best days of my life!
Yes, seventeen years ago today the "as beautiful today as she was seventeen years ago" Mother of Five and I were married.  Seventeen years.  It hardly seems possible! 
For the newer visitors here, if you are interested - here are a couple of links to previous "anniversary" posts...  One that tells the story of how it all happened, the other is a "picture is worth a thousand words" type of post. 
For the Mother of Five... I thank you. 
I thank you for seventeen of the best years of my life...  I thank you for the past seventeen, and toast you to the next seventeen.  You are an amazing woman, and I love you dearly.


  1. Congratulations! May you live, laugh and love happily ever after!

  2. Happy anniversary and best wishes for at least 17 more followed by another 17 followed by ... !

  3. I'm so happy for you and the Mother of Five. I hope your anniversary is another way to create great memories.

  4. Congratulations, and may you be blessed with many more happy years together!
