We met at a Christian college.  He was 18, I was 17.

Our first date was at Pizza Hut.
We were sooooo broke that we bought
a single serving of breadsticks for .99 cents.
We shared them and a water, 
laughed, and said we were full.
Now, he makes me pizza every week.

Here we are 22 years later.
(We celebrated last week.)
I'm sure there were some who thought 
we just might not work out:
Too young, too poor, and over the years, too many kids...
Well, maybe they're right.
We'll just give it a little more time. 


  1. If I were a betting person, I'd place A LOT of money on you two to make it. Happy anniversary! And thank you for showing us all how it's done and that it CAN, in fact, be done.


  2. Happy Anniversary and many blessed returns! ~ Shelley

  3. I hope to take a picture and say "22" years someday! What an inspiration! Blessings to you and your family.

  4. Happy Anniversary you two!!! What a blessing!!!

  5. we are celebrating 20 today. I did not remember your anniversary was in May. It is funny how two people can grow and change into two very different people who still love each other. It is a priveledge to know couples our age who still are.

  6. "We'll just give it a little more time"

    *giggle* That's so cute! :D

    You guys look great! Congratulations on the 22, and here's to 22 more! That oughta show those doubters! LOL
