Ten Years: The End of Cheap Anniversaries

We were students and or missionaries for most of our anniversaries, so luckily the Traditional and Modern Anniversary Gifts  have been relatively inexpensive up to this point in our marriage. Looking down on the list, the Silver, Pearls, Sapphires, and Emeralds we hope to celebrate with in the decades to come fill James's financial sensibilities with dread.

But what began as an unexpected 20-something romance on the banks of the Nile River in Uganda...

Has taken us all over the world...

Enabled us to share our love (and His Love) in hundreds of awesome places...

Was made official on that cold day in Southern Mississippi ten years ago.

We have spent more recent days on less glamorous boats in less glamorous places, sometimes cold and sometimes unbearably hot, sharing our love (and His Love) wherever we have gone.

So, we take a minute today to reflect back on Ten Years. James says he thinks he can handle the Ten-Year Tin/Aluminum Anniversary, especially since canned Dr. Pepper arriving in our town makes that gift easy to fill.

Hopefully Kristie enjoys the ten red roses, the Dr. Pepper, and the lilies that hopefully have bloomed when we return from our weekend getaway at a century-old resort.
