Nineteen Years

Nineteen years ago I married my best friend.  I was only seventeen at the time and had just graduated high school.
 I have spent over half my life with Jason and he is a man of integrity.  I am blessed to be loved by him.   When we were first married we were so broke that a night out was Mcdonald's cheeseburgers for 59 cents and $2 in the motorcycle gas tank to ride around the lake. 

We have experienced the birth of three great kids!  We have grieved the death of 5 grandparents and 2 great grandma's.  We have lived in three states.  We moved to Dallas when our second born was 6 weeks old.  We have owned a machine shop.  We have purchased 4 homes.  We have traveled to Las Vegas, Gulf of Mexico, Black Hills, and the East Coast even though we could not afford a honeymoon.  

Each sunrise brings a new day to share with Jason.  In honor or our nineteen years I will share nineteen things I love about him.

1. Smile
2. Work Ethic
3. Beautiful Blue Eyes
4. Generosity
5. His Famous Toast
6. Laugh
7. His cards and love notes
