Gratitude Sunday and Happy 18th Anniversary

Today I have something very wonderful to be grateful for- Gary and I are celebrating our 18th anniversary!

I feel so fortunate to have shared 18 years being married to my forever love and best friend.  You can read all about how we met and our wedding story in my 17th Anniversary Post  from last year.  

So today I decided to list the things I am grateful for about Gary and our marriage and family.
  • I enjoy our long talks and coffee breaks together.
  • Gary makes me laugh like no one else.
  • I love that we have seen so many years of movies together that we can quote funny lines or even one funny word from a movie and we both know what we're talking about, no matter how obscure the reference. 
  • I genuinely enjoy hanging out with my hubby all the time, working, playing, anytime. 
  • I appreciate all the times Gary gets up in the middle of the night to check a sound I thought I heard. :)
  • Gary and I love getting out into nature and exploring, and I look forward to many more road trips and day outings!
  • Gary is very supportive of anything I am trying to accomplish.
  • Gary works hard to provide for our family which has allowed me to stay at home raising our children for all of these years.
  • I am so grateful for the family we have become, I love parenting alongside Gary, and I so incredibly enjoy our children.
  • I am grateful for the foundations we have laid down for our family to continue to grow on.

Gary, I love you so much!  Happy Anniversary!


We had a great time this week at the county fair! You can read about Our Day at the County Fair here.

Gratitude Sunday


  1. Thanks for reading my gratitude list.

    What a lovely list you have. Happy anniversary!

  2. Congratulations! Gary sounds like a wonderful man. My husband and I do the strange movie quotes also. I think it's a sign of a good marriage when you have things that you share that only you two understand.

  3. Happy Anniversary April! What a wonderful idea to reflect back and think of all the things you are grateful for over the last 18 years with your husband :)
