About: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!!!

"Mawwage... Mawwage is vhat bwings us togevfaaahh todayyy!
Mawwage... that bwessed awwangement!"
........... -.-

ok... seriously now ;)
Today is a landmark in our family's history.

It's amazing how people meet ;)
It's amazing how friends can become spouses and parents.

Well... twenty-two years ago today... two people did become one. Twenty-two years ago today, two people covenanted before man and God that they would be faithful one to another, in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer. Twenty-two years ago today... well, something else happened, but I can't think of it at the moment ^_^

Anyway, on July 9th, 1988, Michael Stone and Julia Fitz were joined in holy matrimony (for those of you who don't know what that is... marriage ;) These two people are my parents! *obviously* ;)

The couple of the day... hand chosen by God to live together as man and wife...

and have these three ridiculous females ;)

Dear mom and dad!
I love you both so much and pray the Lord's blessings on this, your 22nd wedding anniversary!
What a day it's been! With Lili's arrival last night and running from here to there running errands and visiting with dear friends!
22 years! That's a long time! I pray that you'll have at LEAST 22 more... (hopefully more, of course ;)
What a blessing it has been to Anna, Olivia and I to see your relationship change and bloom over our lives. Granted, you're not perfect (neither are we, apparently ;), but through it all, you have both remained faithful to one another, to us, and to our Lord!
In the years that follow, I look forward to what changes (or non-changes ;) the Lord has in store for our family and am eagerly awaiting it with y'all!

Blessings, hugs, and love from your favorite middle daughter ;) ...

Thank you, dear Emily~~~

Changes or nonchanges! Yes, I like the nonchanges part, but we know that this is not likely, don't we?

I love you and am so glad the Lord placed you in the home He established 22 years ago when your Daddy and I said, "I DO!!!".

You are most amazing! Mom

Happy Anniversary Mr. and Mrs. Stone!

I hope your special day was blessed. I know I am personally happy every time my own parents's anniversary rolls around, as it reminds me that I would not be here had they not gotten married (and you bet I'm glad they did LOL!!!)

Anyway, Happy Anniversary again!

In Christ,

~ Zach S.
