15 years

Today's our anniversary and I was thinking about what 15 years have brought us:

2 college graduations (both Mike's -- mine happened just before we got married)

3 children

3 vehicles bought (not including the one we started out with)

7 moves

7 trips to the emergency room or urgent care

9 new nieces and nephews (soon to be 11)

At least 15 different jobs (both of us combined)

At least 23 different church callings (both of us combined -- and I'm sure there are others I can't remember)

10,000 arguments (just a rough guess)

10,000 arguments resolved

100,000 kisses & hugs

And countless things to be grateful for.

15 years doesn't seem that long ago. Although we might look just a tiny bit older now. And one of us (I'm not saying who) might have a little less hair now. But trading youth (and hair) for wisdom and experience seems like a pretty good deal to me.

Happy Anniversary ! Both Dave and I celebrated our 15th on the 9th. My 41st birthday was on your anniversary too. We are all older, and much better too. Love, Andrea

Congrats! I will have to do a similar list in July! Gosh can you believe we have been off of our missions this long?
