Happy 15th Anniversary Uncle Bubba

Today, we've been married 15 years. We have been together for 18 though, good thing huh since Chance is 17 HAHAHA!!!

We had us a real redneck wedding, with boots, jeans, bolo ties, cowboy hats, and HAY!!! Oh and don't forget the red Scarlett O'Hara dresses. I almost went barefoot but my momma had a fit, so I found some shoes at the very very very last minute! LOL

Please forgive the quality of the pictures, they are from 15 years ago and were scanned probably 8 years ago so they aren't very good quality, but it is what it is.

It's been a long, winding road for us, sometimes an uphill battle, sometimes a downhill slide, and other times just us moving along at a steady pace doing the best we can with what we have. We had a baby when we were still babies ourselves, got married, and then had another baby. We have been trying to raise our kids and each other all at the same time. We've made so many sacrifices for each other and the kids and some have been worth it and others haven't and we both know we're neither one easy to live with but we do it. We are polar opposites in most things which has made for lots of arguments that were only resolved with some good old mattress dancing and others that will never be resolved at all. But, it's ok. It's all ok. We've made it this far and have so much further to go. We've got one on the way out of the house and one on the way into high school and soon, so soon, it will be just us. I have so many fears about that time but at the same time so much hope. I worry that we'll never speak to each other again after the kids leave home yet I hope that we really spend that time getting to know each other again, finding ourselves, finding OUR life together because when the kids leave us, it will just be us and I hope the universe can handle that...LOL

Most of all, I know that none of that other stuff matters because I can't stop loving you and you can't stop loving me and somehow it all works out in the end, doesn't it?

I love you Uncle Bubba,
Aunt Crazy


  1. I wish blogs that will make me cry at work would come with a disclaimer! Too sweet - congrats to you both.

  2. such a sweet post for your sweetie :)
    Happy Anniversary!

  3. Duh... just saw this post. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY y'all and many, many, many more!!!

  4. That was beautifully put! My wedding colors were red, white and black. Red rocks!!!

  5. Happy, happy anniversary! Loved the pictures!

    I've been meaning to stop by forever and say hi.

    I know what you mean about it being just the two of you. My son's only got 2 1/2 more years before college...then what???? But like you say; it'll be fine - we love each other so it'll be good.

  6. musta missed this one.... Happy Anniversary....

    Great post and tribute. as long as you keep loving and communicating it will be alright...

    and that doesn't necessarily mean agreeing....LOL

  7. I am sitting in a puddle of tears! Beautiful letter! I can't imagine the emotions you must be going through at this point in your life with an almost empty nest. The thought of that scares me too, my hubby and I were together like 3 months before we were pregnant so it has never really been just us and that scares me! I loved this!! Happy Anniversary you two!!

  8. Awww...So Beautiful...Following you now just wanted to let you know! Found you through Dee @Say anythings McKlinky saturday share...

  9. Happy Anniversary. We will be celebrating our 30th in a couple of weeks and our only son turned 18 last month. I can't imagine the day Mike will be on his own and "we" will be again. It is very scary. We were married 13 years before "surprise you CAN have a baby" and after 18 or so year with a baby we'll be back to the two of us. I know tens of millions of people have done this and lived though it but for me it's scary.
    Thank you for sharing. I found you from Dee at Say Anything.
    Take care and God Bless. Have a great weekend.
