20 year anniversary and Happy Father’s Day!

I’m a few days late with this post but I couldn't let our 20th anniversary came and go without some sort of recognition.

It was Friday, June 16, 1989

Canoga Park, California. 

I had my dream come true wedding.

Mr. E. thought a church ceremony followed by ham buns in the basement would’ve been great.

But this gal had been planning her wedding since age 12 and had a few more ideas to celebrate in mind!

And here we are. . . 

20 years,

six kids,

a few pounds :),

much laughter,

a few tears,

some sickness

but thankfully more health,




















As I wrote in my note. . .

I still feel right at home. . . with you.

Your love for Him. . .brings me peace.

I love you more today. . .than I did 20 years ago.



And Happy Father’s Day to my Dad. . .

the one who walked me down the aisle. 

This is one of my very favorite pictures:


What a moment!

I know my Dad loves me.

I know my Dad will always be there for me/ for us.

And for that I am truly grateful.


I think we should’ve bought him a pair of slippers!


But he loves these. . .they’re all broken in and have miles of good tread left!!

That’s my dad!!

Happy Father’s Day Sunday!
