 Today marks 27 years of having married my sweet honey of a husband ! I can hardly believe we have been married that long, sometimes I feel like we are still newlyweds :)  I feel very blessed to be married to my BFF who still gives me butterflies :)
Here's the card I made him. 
 My husband and I are high school sweethearts and have actually known each other since 4th grade ! That school year, our teacher sat us side by side which caused us to royally hate each other, you know... in that way that a 4th grader would :)  Plus, the whole class would bug us by singing that annoying "kissing on a tree" song !LOL! Something magical must have happened in 9th grade, suddenly we saw each other in a whole different light - must have been the hormones ! We've been together ever since :)
The little chapel kind of reminds me of the neighborhood church we were married in. I don't remember much else from that day. Everyone said I looked like a deer in head lights walking down the aisle! LOL ! I must have been overwhelmed with the events of the day ! No worries, I've since snapped out of it and been in wedded bliss ever since :)
Isn't the stamp so cute ? :) It's from the new Scrappy Moms set "Sweet Somethings".  I am in love with this set ! It has a ton of great sentiments on it ! It's the first time I've made an anniversary card for my hubby :) It was really fun :) Can't wait to see what he thinks :) 
We're going out for a special dinner tonight and then heading out for a weekend at the beach :)

Pin It!

  5. Just recently found your blog and have been viewing lately. I had to comment today because there are not many people like us in the world. I've known my husband since 6th grade and started dating in high school. His mom was the bookkeeper at our middle school, and everyone loved her. I am blessed to have her in my life, too. Thanks for sharing your story.
