Flashback Friday!

Since yesterday was Valentine's Day, today I'm flashing back on pictures of my sweetie from when we were dating and first married. You know, I really don't feel like I've aged much but then when I go back and look at these pictures, I realize we look like little kids. It's hard to believe we've been together 15 of our 35 years.

This was taken on Christmas Eve of 1993, our first Christmas together. We were only 21. Ahhh, young love.

This was one of many pictures we took of ourselves. We got really good at just holding the camera out and taking our picture. We actually have a whole album of us with these kinds of pictures. Thank goodness Todd had a long arm and good aim! This was taken in Hannibal on Todd's birthday in 1994. We went down there and hit Mark Twain Cave, Sawyer's Creek, ate out and had a good time. This was always one of my favorite pictures.

This of course was our college graduation in 1995. It happened to fall on Mother's Day so afterwards we went with our families to The Plaza for lunch. Just a 4 months till our wedding day!!

This was our first New Year's Eve after we were married in 1995. We went to a party at Dan and Gail's house with our friends.

This was in early 1996 sometime, I forgot to look up the date. But we were at a brunch in Chicago with all of my family. Shortly after leaving here I got extremely ill, I think it must have been food poisoning because I felt fine before I ate!
I love ya sweetie. We've had many wonderful Valentine's Days together and I look forward to many more. What a journey we've been on so far and I know it will only get better. We have these 3 beautiful boys to raise together. Who would have thought back in these pictures that one day we would be so blessed??

You STOLE my line....You look like little kids. It is so amazing how fast the years pass by. The one of you in Chicago was Aunt Janet and Uncle Tim's 25th anniversary celebration. I didn't remember you getting sick at all, but that was probably b/c I was trying to keep track of my 13, 11, and 9 year olds.

I just LOVE Flashback Friday....keep 'em coming
