Happy Anniversary to Me!

Well... I can hardly believe it, but today marks my 10th wedding anniversary! Man, does time fly by! So... in lieu of the big day, I thought I'd share some pictures from the archives. :)


Here we are... young as can be! I think this might have been taken late in '97 or early '98. I was around 20 years old. --- Still a baby, but I felt so grown up. Man! All I can think of is... I use to be really skinny! ;)

And... here is my little hot tamale on our wedding day. He was 23, I was 21. Craziness!


And... here's the blushing bride:


We drove away in our little red VW bug. I loved that little car! Actually, we met because of a VW. My husband and his friend restored antique Volkswagens and and I had wanted one ever since I was 14. They had a little white VW bug convertible for sale in their front yard and I spotted it one day on my commute to college. I stopped with a friend later that day to check it out... and out walks my future husband all covered in grease. He tells me now how freaked out he was when he saw us walking up their drive. He was wearing mustard colored sweats and hadn't showered in 3 days. They'd been pouring all of their time working on another project in the garage and didn't expect to have company. ;) Well... I guess I saw through the grease, because even though I didn't get the car.... I did get a ring on my finger. (No... not the same day!) ;)
My hubby's come up with some sort of secret get-away... so I'll see you all when I get back! :)

    CONGRATULATIONS on 10 wonderful years! The ironic thing is, I typed in 10th anniversary cards to get some inspiration for my husbands card that I need to make, because we are also celebrating our 10th anniversary today! How awesome to find an fellow cardmaker/stamper with the same anniversary. Many blessings for many more years together. Melissa from Lanesville, Indiana!

  5. Happy Anniversary!! I've been married for 30 years (I was 6 when I got married....that's my story and I'm sticking to it! LOL) and I can tell you from experience that even though you may go through rough times, if you focus first on Christ and then on each other rather than the problem, it makes it tons easier!

  8. Happy Anniversary Julie!! I have to tell you that I gasped when I read of how you and your husband met over a VW beetle...because that's my story too!! I met my hubby online in a VW Beetle website dedicated to restoring them. I had just finished fixing up my bug and hubby was about to start his. A few (thousand) emails and phonecalls later, we met in person, fell in love and we'll be celebrating our 9 year anniversary next January. :) Who knew VW Beetles could bring people together like this?!?

    Enjoy your secret get-away Julie! ;)

  18. Awww... you & Soup are the cutest!!! And did you know I used to have a '76 white convertible beetle?! It's true! But it was always falling apart and I couldn't drive it out of town, so I sold it a few years ago. (I know, I know! I kinda regret, but neither my husband nor I are handy that way, and we were always having to tow it into Tulsa to get fixed...) I've replaced it with an '05 red one, with a black top (kinda like the one you two lovebirds are sitting on in the last pic!). Can't believe you're a beetle lover, too -- I KNEW I liked you! ;)

    Hope you had a fabulous trip -- can't wait to hear all about it!
