22 Years

Twenty-two years ago this evening, Sean and I had our first kiss. We'd already known one another since the first day of 7th grade, but shared a secret kiss in the kitchen of our high school cafeteria during the prom that we were servers at (as 10th graders), and the rest is history.

And we've packed a lot of history into those years, for sure!

We grow closer with each passing year, and have more fun now than ever before. We've always said it's a miracle that we grew in the same direction, being so young when we got together. We truly believe that God led us to one another and has been leading us ever since.

Married for 17 years now, he makes me laugh like no other person and still makes me swoon like a teenager on a daily basis. I can't wait to see him walk through the door every night.

Through it all, we barely even argue. Honestly, it's just not worth the time. It's way more fun being happy! I'm so blessed to be married to my best friend.

Thank you, thank you, thank you, God.


  1. As your student P.E. teacher during that 7th grade year, I knew you and Sean were destined to be, really. Just watching you two play paddle ball and do those presidential physical fitness skills test...who could have doubted true love was right around the corner.

  2. Ahhh - Joel. I think there's a reason my middle son shares a name with you.

    You both make me laugh so!

  3. Happy Anniversary of the first kiss!!! That is so sweet. I am so happy for you~

  4. That is so sweet. I hope after 22 years of my first kiss with my DH, we are still happily in love like you two.
