Way Back When-sday

okay, so I shamelessly stole this idea from my sweet friend Leilanni - thanks girl! But I loved the idea and so for my first Way Back Whensday I thought I would post a VERY way back of Steve and I.

We just celebrated our 6 year wedding anniversary a few weeks ago - and of course, I always have to throw out there - that we've been together 12, yes 12 years!!! I can't believe it's been that long.
Here is a picture of us during a break in March of 1997 at my house. It's hard for me to comprehend that so much time has gone by. We've changed so much physically (more so me;) and spiritually, and emotionally.

If I'm being honest, sometimes I miss this couple...I miss how goofy and crazy we were in love. How we couldn't find enough time to be together, hated to get off the phone (and would often just fall asleep on the phone so we didn't have to), could literally kiss for hours until our mouths hurt (is that TMI?). and I definitely miss that figure!!!!;)

But also - I'm so thankful for some of the changes - we're in a place now where we are more conscious of our spiritual walk and working towards bringing Christ into the center of our family (which is another huge bonus - our kids!!!) We still love each other - past the crazy, goofy head over heels "love" - we're still here - through SO much and still really LOVE each other. God is so good! and i truly love you so much steve!!!!

I love you too!! What nice words, but there are better pictures of me.

We have been very blessed, and I can't wait to see the ways in which we continue to learn and grow together as a family.
