23 years strong

I honestly can't believe 23 years ago today I got married.  That's crazy right?  It's been a wild ride but I wouldn't share it with anyone else.

Mike and I met over 27 years ago when I was 17 and he was 18.  He was a musician and in a band (hence the Flock of Seagulls Hair lol).

We moved out to BC several months later after I turned 18.  My parents didn't think it would last but obviously we were just meant to be together.

We got married July 27, 1991 on a boat (The Carousel 2) and it was exactly what I wanted - something small, intimate, different and fun!

We moved to a great community called Ladner, I couldn't imagine living anywhere else.  Then we added to our family with two wonderful boys Rhys and Linden.
Traveled and went to Disney a lot (because he know how much I love it)

Laughed, cried, fought, made up - all that stuff that comes with marriage. Like the time we were driving home from Savary on our anniversary and he bought me a Slurpee for a present...exactly what I wanted :)

He still buys me flowers and makes me laugh.
The boys are 15 and 11 now so we work hard to pay off our mortgage, travel whenever we can, and try and go on an adventure now and then.  Happy 23rd anniversary honey, here's to many more.


Happy Anniversary :)
