34 years and counting...

My sweet husband and me the first year he taught me how to fly fish!

Today, Larry and I are celebrating 34 years of marriage bliss! I know, we are much too young to have been married that long! :) I thank God for the man He blessed me with. I thought he was pretty amazing when we were dating but really I had no idea!! Each day he amazes me with his huge heart, his amazing work ethic (really I have never know ANYONE who works as hard as him), his faithfulness to me and his incredible love and support! He has provided for us, shown me God in so many ways and loves me warts and all! :) He is a wonderful daddy to our two children, a great father-in-law and super duper Bud to four adorable grandchildren!! He always finds time to help us and others and is so very talented with his hands! I wish he had more time to build fun stuff because he is more talented and gifted than he even realizes! One of the GREATEST gifts he has given me is the opportunity to be a stay at home mom when our kids were growing up! He will NEVER know how much that meant to me! Now, we work together but he still finds time to let me have some days off to do fun things! I am blessed beyond words! Here are a few of my favorite pictures of him doing things that bring him joy!!! (In no particular order)

Ya know, the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, or so they say, and that is what I've always thought about Larry...that he must be an amazing father and husband because Zach is. All three of you have been so fortunate to have Larry, and now the grandkids get an amazing Bud! How very, very special! And it goes the same way with you; how lucky are Larry, Z, and A for having such a wonderful keeper of the home. What a legacy he and you will both leave behind to your family. Yall are just the best! So glad to have yall in our life, as well; you are both great examples to so many people. We love yall and your whole family!
