19 years ago on this date, I was 2 months away from having my life forever altered. I met Cody in August at a meeting for the 40 students who were headed to study abroad in London with Harding University. I was immediately attracted to the strong and silent vibe he was radiating. I think he liked my eyebrows. Don't knock them. Eyebrows are important. He may have also thought I had the most gorgeous hair ever.
15 years ago on this date, Cody and I were married before a small crowd at Preston Road Church of Christ in Dallas. It was a simple, but beautiful wedding...just what I wanted. We were surrounded by family and friends.
10 years ago on this date, we were a new family of 3. Little Ava Beth had come along just a few months earlier and we were adjusting to life as parents. That wasn't such a easy adjustment. Cody and I had a lot of great adventures during our years of marriage without children, but this was certainly the greatest adventure yet.
5 years ago on this date, we escaped our THREE children for an anniversary trip to Banff, Canada. It was tough to leave these little cuties behind for a few days. Just look at their sweet faces! There was a time when we had a 5, 3, and 1 year old. Those were very crazy times.
Today on this date, we are celebrating 15 years of marriage. There have been good times, and very hard times. And I can honestly say I love and appreciate Cody more today at this moment than ever before. He has loved me unconditionally and helped me become a stronger, more faithful daughter of God. He has poured out love on our children, and blessed them beyond measure. I am so thrilled to call him my husband. Happy Anniversary, honey!
