Tomorrow marks six year of being married to my wonderful hubby!!! Can you believe it?? (Well you probably can!!!! I am just not so sure I can!!! LOL)

In some ways it has been a LONG six years.... Three deployments to Iraq.... several Christmas's, Birthdays, anniversaries spent apart.... A few really really really rough times when deployments ended and we had to actually live together again!

But then in some ways it feel just like yesterday that we ran away and eloped!!! Yep - can you believe that!!! We were engaged a total of 19 days!!! I remember trying to plan a wedding and I got really stressed.... see we met at a 30's something group at our church. There was over 100 people in that group. Our Church had over 4000 members..... Who do you invite? Who do you not?

I wanted an outdoors wedding - the stress of chairs, a sound system, what if it rains..... Waaaaa!!!! So I asked Andrew - what is this about??? Really??? What is this about - it is about me, you, God! That's it - nothing more, nothing less.... just ME, YOU, and GOD!

So I started looking at wedding chapels online and I found this awesome place in TN... a week later Andrew emailed me and said sit down... "I called the Chapel - we can get married this WEEKEND!!!!" (This happened on a Thursday) So we went that night, I found a dress, we got wedding bands - I went into work the next morning and asked if I could have the rest of the day off and the following Monday and Tue... and the rest is history!!!

Happy Anniversary Hubby!!! I am so blessed to have you as my husband and I am proud to say that it is still just about - me, you and God!!! I can't wait to spend the "rest" of my life with you!!!

Until Next Time!
