It's hard to believe that 18 years ago today I was getting married. Eighteen years ago seems like such a lifetime. To a teenager it really is. But once you've been married for 18 years you realize that no, 18 years is not a lifetime. I do however hope to be married a lifetime to my husband. He is such a wonderful husband, terrific father to which our son looks up to constantly and is still the best friend any one could ever ask for.
We have been through more ups and downs than anyone ever should have to live through. But you know what? I really wouldn't trade them for the world. It has made me a much stronger person and I know that it has made our marriage much stronger too.
Andy...I loved you then with all of my heart and it has grown tremendously over these past 18 years. I see it continuing to grow for the rest of our lifetime. I LOVE YOU!
