It’s My Anniversary!!!

15 Years ago TODAY I married my best friend! It was a whirl-wind courtship, but when you know you just know, right?

We dated for 4 months before he proposed, we were married 6 months later, and on our 1 year anniversary (of knowing each other) I found out I was pregnant with our first son, Nick. Whew…what an adventure God has had us on!

Here is the church we were married in back in small town Kentucky! I wanted to get married where I grew up so we had a nice small town KY wedding. We took a picture (see below) in front of the church (when the boys were little) to remember that special day.
Thanks so much Matt for being my better half. I could not imagine living my life with any other person. You truly complete me and make me a better person. I thank God for you each and every day!

Happy Anniversary,


  1. Congratulations! You sound like us. I got a sapphire after 3 months, a diamond after 6 months and were married 9 months later. 6 months after we were married, I was pregnant. All’s well 27 years later!

  2. Happy happy anniversary! I LOVE KY!! You’re right, when you know…you know. Have a great time celebrating.

  3. Congratulations on 15 yrs! Your courtship was quicker than ours! We met in Sept., started dating in Nov., engaged in August & married in Nov.! But for us, we had to wait 4 yrs before getting pregnant (my husband had some health issues our first few years of marriage).

    Anyway, Congrats again & have fun celebrating! Anything special?

  4. Happy Annivesary my friend! I hope you guys do something special to celebrate! BTW for a small town that’s a BIG Baptist Church!

  5. Happy Anniversay Mel! Enjoy your hubby today (well everyday but especially today)!
    Love ya Siesta!

  6. Happy anniversary! We had one of those whirlwind romances, too, 21 years ago! Well, I guess I should say a whirlwind dating period, marriage and first baby…the romance is still going on, just to clarify, that part didn’t end 21 years ago! LOL!


  7. Happy anniversary to you both.
    Much Love to you and Matt.

  8. Well, a VERY happy anniversary to you!!! I agree ~ when you know, you just know. My husband and I were only together for 10 months before we got married, too. (although we’d grown up together!)

  9. Happy Anniversary!! Hope it was wonderful for you and your hubby! Love the photos!

  10. I wish that I had come by on Thursday to congratulate you. Happy Belated Anniversary. Having your family picture taken in front of the church is a great idea. It’s probably been 16 years since I’ve seen the church that we got married in.

  11. Happy belated anniversary!! I can relate–we were engaged less than 2 months after we met and married 9 months later! Why waste time when you KNOW?! Many blessings on your marriage and family for many more years to come!
