Yesterday, George and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary. It seems like yesterday that George and I eloped to Tennessee and were married. We were married by a lady judge wearing a hot pink windsuit. I know it sounds a little red-neckish, but I didn't care. I only wanted to be George's wife!
After dating for a year and a half and being engaged for a year and George calling off the wedding once, it was time for him to make up his mind. It was time for action! I went to his work on a Tuesday and demanded a date. George wanted to wait until the fall when he had a break from touring with Diamond Rio, but I couldn't wait that long. I looked at his calendar and saw he had the coming weekend open and said to him, "Marry me this weekend or we're done!" Needless to say, he took me up on my offer. On May 21, 1993, we were married. It was the happiest day of my life!
A year later, on our first anniversary, we were sealed in the LDS Atlanta Temple. George has asked me a couple of times over the years if I would do it all over again with him and my answer is "YES!" everytime. Unfortunately for George, he's stuck with me forever! lol
I'm a brand new stay-at-home mom after almost nine years of teaching elementary physical education. I am married to a fantastic husband of fifteen years who loves me for who I am and is very supportive in all that I do, especially scrapbooking! We have a an almost 16 year old son who loves sports and is your typcial teenager in every fashion, shape and form. Our 13 year old daughter is the musician in the family and cannot wait to be a teenager! Our family wouldn't be complete without our weiner dog and standard poodle, Benny & Carhartt. I am very blessed to have such a wonderful family and am extremely happy where I am in my life.
