Today is Haus Meister’s and my 13th Wedding Anniversary!!
That was then:
This is now.
The balloon stayed home when we went out for dinner. I haven’t seen it since we got home, so I assume it lasted the usual average of 3.5 minutes before popping.
Ah, married life. It’s been such a fun adventure.
Sometimes it looks like this:

Sometimes like this:

And we’re rather looking forward to a time like this:
Only with a corgi instead of a cat. (Thanksgiving is Here, by Diane Goode)
We made up a fun numerical countdown regarding the joys of our happy crazy life, and the ups and downs, past, present, and future… Although don’t consider this is in any way in order of importance.
13 years of happy marriage
12 years of diaper changes
11 gallons of milk a week (I wish we were joking)
10 amazing little (and tall) blessings
9 pairs of shoes to hunt for on Sundays
8 used vehicles
7 years homeschooling
6 years or so left to save for college (EEEEEKK!)
5 bedrooms would be nice…
4 address changes
3 loads of laundry daily
2 runs for the dishwasher
and 1 Pembroke Welsh Corgi!
Thanks, Haus Meister, for 13 fabulous years. Looking forward to all the many many more.
