Lucky 13


13 Years
156 Months
676 Weeks
4,749 Days (including leap days)
113,976 Hours
You get the point

We’ve been married for thirteen years. Today!

Over those 13 years:

  •  we have moved over six times. The longest we’ve lived somewhere has been four years.
  • we’ve purchased two vehicles and have traveled to so many places in them.
  • speaking of traveling we’ve been to at least 13 countries and around 28 states.
  • we’ve attended five churches and have loved everyone of them and how they’ve shaped us.
  • we’ve had two children and can’t imagine life before them…although there was six years after marriage before the first one.
  • we’ve had three pets…two still with us.
  • we’ve gone through three deployments and countless TDYs. When possible I’ve moved with him, be it only for six weeks.
  • we’ve shared inumerable laughs, tears, deep discussions, jokes that only we understand.
  • we’ve continued to grow closer together, and closer to God. He has bound and secured our relationship and I give all credit to Him.


    I love you honey!

I'm a photographer and homeschooler Dream = travel blogger. We move around every couple of years. That's fine, I love seeing different parts of our great country and the world. Great things: Jesus, traveling, photography, eating, sewing, scrapbooking, reading, shopping...not necessarily in that order.
