Today is our 25th anniversary! Wow! Are we really that old? We do look young on our wedding day! I am so thankful God has blessed us with 25 years and so thankful for a husband that loves God, loves me, and loves our children, something getting rare these days.
We went to south Texas for our honeymoon for about six weeks and helped out at a couple different ministries.
This is me and my dad. I didn't know it but he wasn't feeling well, which is why he is paler than normal :), and had a heart attack the next day.
We served white wedding cake with a special cake topper that both of my sisters and I used changing the ribbon color. We also had sandwiches, and tons of the Christmas cookies and candy my mom made.
Arthur and his groomsmen. Two of the groomsmen were married friends and the other Arthur's friend and my cousin. Arthur's best man, a tease, gave Arthur a pop top instead of a ring during the ceremony along with the right ring. I don't know if anyone saw it but we sure got a "chuck"le out of it. Yes, Arthur looks young because we were young! He was 20 years old by a couple of months and I was 20 by a few days.
The whole wedding party. My have styles changed! It was a "thrifty" wedding but since we both grew up in the same church is was quite special.
So what do we do on our anniversary? Well, being New Years Day, absolutely nothing is open so we generally stay home and enjoy a day of nothing. Yes, it's a treat to have Arthur home without feeling like he needs to work all day. This year we have a trip planned for later in January.
Marriage advice? Yes, we do have some. 1st - Never go to bed angry! 2nd - Put God first in everything you do! 3rd - Put the others needs over your own!
I'm sure there's more advice but I never really thought about it till just now!
