Anniversary coming up

Dh and I will celebrate our 15th anniversary soon. In a way, it's hard to believe it's been that long, but at the same time it feels like we've just always been together. :)

It's been an interesting 15 years to say the least... we started out as married college students, living in a basement apartment (ok, that was after 2 months living in the roach motel, but I'm still trying to forget about that!) and working as janitors at school on the 3am-7am shift for minimum wage.

Over the years, we went to lots of football games and dollar movies, we got better jobs (thankfully!), and moved around a lot. We adopted three ferrets, eventually finished school and started a family. We got the shock of our lives when we learned we were going to have twins! We experienced the roller coaster of the NICU when they arrived 6 1/2 weeks early, and the joy of sleepless nights trying to figure out a good routine for keeping preemie twins fed, happy, and asleep for any length of time. Three and a half years later we welcomed our third child into the family. We learned all about autism as our twins, and later our youngest, were diagnosed on the spectrum.

I think that what has helped us keep a strong marriage is that we both have a similar sense of humor and we laugh about everything... and we work together as partners on pretty much everything. We love each other and for the most part, have each learned to either embrace or overlook the other's "quirks." :)

So here's to a lot more eventful (or maybe just calm, that would be great too!) years to come!
