Time Marches On . . .


Tim and I celebrated our 27th anniversary yesterday. Geez, the years have flown by. We were incredibly young when we married, he was 20 and I was 19, but we persevered and, despite a few rough spots early on due to youth and immaturity, have (almost) raised two beautiful daughters who appear to be on the road to being happy, productive citizens. They're not on the road quite yet. Lindsay has one more week of school at Ohio University and is cramming like mad for finals this week. This second year has been a difficult one with some tedious history and anthopology classes. Kelsey has approximately four hours left of her sophomore year, she could probably cite the number of minutes and seconds as well. Thankfully, she passed the Ohio Graduation Test (necessary for graduation), so she is excused from exams in those classes.


I would brain my daughters if they wanted to get married so young. While I'm very happy and more in love with my husband than when I married him all those years ago, I want them to finish their education, find their happy place, hopefully very successfully, before they settle down.

Life is good!

Congrats. That is so great! I love real life stories like that. My hubby and I married young too. We didnt marry quite as young as you but have been together since we were 16 and 18 years old!
Great picture of you and your hubby. Congrats again.

Thanks for the congrats, everyone -they are much appreciated. I should have noted that this picture was taken in Savannah on an incredibly hot and humid day - the spot on Tim's shirt is sweat, not a stain! I wouldn't take him out in dirty clothes! lol

This is great. Best of luck to your family. Since you mention the Ohio Graduation test on this blog posting, we placed a link on our Ohio Graduation test Blog. It is viewable at this post about the Ohio Graduation Test. We are looking for any comments or opinions on the OGT - including the best way to study for the OGT test. Hopefully other students will find our blog helpful.
