9 Years!

Today Kurtis and I celebrate our 9th Anniversary! A lot has happened in that 9 years...completion of Kurtis' BA and MA, a number of job transitions for Kurtis, a house (and major remodel), 2 beautiful children with 1 on the way, transition for me from full time teacher to full time mom...many challenges and a multitude of blessings!

We often think of what we were told by our good friend Sherwood Lingenfelter, that finding a good mate is looking for someone that you will have fun and enjoy working through all your junk with and dealing with the things life throws at you. Every minute of every day has not been "fun" and it has been hard work and takes great commitment but what a true blessing it is to enjoy the journey we are on together and I wouldn't want to be on it with anyone else!

We cannot forget to say...
Thank you to everyone that has stood beside us in support and love to encourage us on this journey!
