Always and Forever

We were 20 yrs old when we met, crazy and in love!

He is an out-going, fun loving active man, at work or play. He loves to hunt and fish

then loves to tell some amazing stories. He is a dedicated, principled, and strong

husband and father.

I am intensely emotional and a sentimental person, but I am also easy-going, and at

times have a spunky side. Love is very important in my life, and in its name. I love

new experiences and adventures.

You know they say, opposites do attract.

Dreams came true for us...

We had a family, 2 daughters and a son (he was born on my husband's birthday)

We have alot of love for each other and love for God.

We have renovated several homes, and have built 2 homes. Our home we live in now we

built to look like a old home, our floors are 100 years old.

We have planted gardens together, raised chickens, we had horses, bicycles, 4

wheelers, tents, tent-trailers, campers, and motorhomes, for all the lakes and

mountains and oceans we have traveled to.

We have skied many, many years together as a family, and even skied the Alps in

Austria and Germany.

All our Dreams Came True...

We have had difficult times in our marriage ~ lots of struggles. In these tough

times ~ we pray and remember the day we were married and said "I DO".

for better, for worse

for richer, for poorer

in sickness and health.

We made promises to each other and to God....until death do us part.

Today we celebrate 37 years of life together ~ the joy & pain, laughter & tears.

We celebrate love forever.
