Has it really been 12 years?

On a cold winter night 12 years ago I laughed and cried and made a forever promise. Tonight I sat at my dining room table with 3 little boys and my husband, laughing and eating chocolate cake with buttercream frosting. They sang "Happy Birthday" and I got a corner (all that yummy frosting!) and I could hardly believe that 12 years ago I couldn't have imagined them -- yet tonight I can't imagine my life without them.

A wonderful birthday, and an even more wonderful anniversary, knowing that I would do it all again in a minute, and so would he. I am so grateful for all that we have built together.

Happy anniversary, Rob. Someone had a hand in it, long before we ever knew.


  1. Happy anniversary, Jennifer.

  2. aww this is so sweet, congrats on your anniversary!

  3. Happy Anniversary and Happy Birthday too!!!

  4. Happy Anniversary Jennifer and Rob!

  5. I had forgotten that it was also your anniversary. Happy, Happy!

    If you add my marriages together, I have been married for 12 years too! :)
