Eighteen years ago my life was overrun with wedding plans for our daughter..... I even began to joke "is there life after the wedding"? You want everything to be just right and you quickly find out that in the wedding world everything is different, It's a pay before you go deal and those little things you decided to make for the quests to take home.....take forever to make!!!
This month is their 17th wedding anniversary and we wanted to surprise them with dinner where their reception was held...... Arrowhead country club
It is indeed a beautiful facility with a view to die for.....






and the intricate ceiling is very beautiful.



but the best part?



They are still together. It is not easy to maintain a marriage, it takes a lot of work and sacrifice, but it is so worth it.

Happy Anniversary kids

That was wonderful of you to do that for them. Looks like a nice place and they are a handsome couple.

Marriage is hard.

What a perfect anniversary gift. My daughter and her husband approach their 17th wedding anniversary in June. I have watched them pull together to make this amazing thing called a marriage work and I am so very proud of both of them.

Such a beautiful tribute to such an amazing pair. I am thankful to be a sibling through Christ, but honored to be a witness of their journey. Life obviously isn't fair and rarely is it comfortable...and yet I wouldn't trade one difficulty in that we have walked together if it meant I couldn't have walked with them. I am proud of the both of you and blessed to be your sis. I love you, Congradulations from both Mike and I! Shell
