Looking Back . . .

Have I mentioned how incredibly blessed I am to have married the man of my dreams, my high school sweetheart, and my very best friend? I know I don't tell HIM that enough, and I probably haven't really mentioned it here either. Well, I am. INCREDIBLY blessed.

We met in 9th grade (but he wouldn't talk to me until 10th - L-O-N-G story!) and we started dating during the summer before 11th grade. I should also mention that I "knew" the moment we met that we would eventually marry - and I don't know HOW or WHY, but as SOON as we met, the thought popped into my head - "you are going to marry that boy" . . . and as CRAZY as it sounds (even to me at the time!) - it was true!! :)

After high school we both went to New Tribes Mission's Bible School and Missionary Training Center located in North Cotes, England. Yup - THAT England - the one across the big pond. We were engaged just before Thanksgiving that year and during our Christmas break at home, we decided to "go for it" and plan a SUPER fast wedding and go back to school hitched. :D Pulled it off in just over 2 weeks - how's THAT for spontaneous?? :)
We were able to travel a lot more once we were married and we got to see a good bit of Europe. Tonight I was travelling down memory lane and it got me thinking . . . so here are some of my favorite pictures of us during those years - granted, I look pretty dern stupid in some of them BUT they are all special memories. :) And if this bores you - SORRY - but I'm in a nostalgic mood so humor me for a bit, ok? ;) Oh and I'll add some ones of me - just because

OH - and by the way - my logo isn't on these photos so I can claim credit - some were taken via friends, family - OH and then there were all of the tripods my brilliant hubby set up everywhere we ever hiked to . . . HA! :)
