It's Our 25th Wedding Anniversary...

"Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same."
~ Emily Bronte ~

WOW! Time sure flies! Twenty-five years ago today I married the love of my life and my very best friend, Mike Brown. In May of 1986 we were both only 19 years old when we were introduced by my friend Shelli, who was dating Mike's friend Mark....and 14 months later - on July 17, 1987 - we were married. (I was 20 and Mike was two weeks away from turning 21 on our wedding day...so young!)

It was pretty much "love at first sight" for us when we met and began dating...we got along so well and enjoyed being together so much...and it's still that way 25 years later! Through the years we have grown closer through all the zigs and zags that life has thrown at us; and are more in love now than on the day we said "I Do". No one makes me feel as loved and comfortable in my own skin, or makes me laugh as hard, as Mike Brown! We are so blessed to have each other and to have raised an incredible son along this amazing journey...I can hardly wait to see what the next 25 years has in store for us!

I love you, Mike Brown...I thank God for you every single day and I would do this life with you all over again in a heartbeat!

Thanks, friends, for letting me share this with you on our special day!
