Celebrating 10 Years!

If you've been following Our Story at all, then you already know how we met and that the 17th of June is a big day for us (first "date" - '98, day we got engaged - '99, wedding day - '00). Today we are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary. It's truly hard to believe that we have been married for ten years already and have often wondered where the time went! Well, in tribute to our 10 years of wedded bliss (and a few years prior to marriage) I decided to put together a slide show set to two songs that have special meaning to us. It covers the years of our friendship, courtship, and the ten years since we started our life together. The photos follow us around the world and around the U.S. as we worked as traveling missionary aircraft mechanics and Jack-and-Jill-of-all-trades. In the words of Bilbo Baggins, we went "there and back again" and wouldn't change a thing. It has been an amazing ten years and we can't wait to see what the next ten will hold for us. Chances are we'll find ourselves on all sorts of new adventures - and I can't imagine going along for the ride with anyone else. I am blessed.

So...Happy Anniversary to us and here's to many, many more! I hope you enjoy the video (Running time is 6:42) and thanks for all who have made such kind comments about our love story. Please feel free to share it with others. Sorry for how small the video is - I couldn't figure out how to make it bigger!

After going through all our pictures to make this slide show I was reminded of what the angel Clarence told George Bailey: "You see George, you've really had a wonderful life." I feel the same could be said of us - it's certainly been an adventure and I'm thankful for all of the experiences we have had - can't wait for more!


  1. Yes, what a beautiful, and simply wonderful life!! We really enjoyed your video and find ourselves rejoicing with you in God's plan of bringing you together! Love from the both of us, John and Linda Owen

  2. Cute slide show! :o) It was fun to watch.... Hope you two have a very happy anniversary and many more!

  3. Aww, congratulations! What a wonderful story and thanks for sharing it. I was totally captivated and got way distracted from what I should have been working on. But it was worth it! :)

    My husband and I have been together for 10 years...we knew on our first date that it was the real thing and talked about getting married on our 2nd or 3rd date already. But we waited a while to get married because of our move to Germany and so on...so our 10 year anniversary is not until Dec 2011

    So glad I stopped by and discovered your As You Wish story. It was awesome :)

    BTW the way, I can't believe you're younger than me...and June 17th is my mom's birthday lol

  4. Just read your story and loved every word!

    God is so good!

  5. Thank you so much for sharing your story! It is beautiful!!!
