hello monday. {15 years in the making}

This week marks our 15th Anniversary. I can hardly believe it. We were just kids... who would have ever thought? I remember when I was younger, I use to roll my eyes when I heard people say they had "married their best friend". Now, I am one of those people. I would choose you all over again, Jeff Maki. I love you to the moon and back. Happy Anniversary.

Well, let's get this week started right. Without any further a do, HELLO MONDAY!

Hello 15 years. Hello looking back and giggling. Hello many more to come. Hello so glad I have you and if I haven't told you that I love you, that I need you... well then I have just been side tracked with one crazy ride lately.  Thank you for the adventure. 

Hello early mornings. Hello elk hunting. I hope you get one soon. Hello man child you are getting too BIG. Thank you for the graphic stories about elk bugles and 4 wheeling. 

Hello three generations looking for "the one". Hello memories being made.

Hello it's time to finish unpacking, I can barely see the floor. 

Hello finished Cross Wall. Such a fun reminder of all the blessings in my life. Each one has a special memory tied to them.  

Hello one spot that brings me a little sanity. Hello pumpkin creamer. Hello smell of camp fire. Hello autumn. Have I mentioned that I love you? Hello to sweaters and boots and scarves. Oh, my!

Hello young man. So glad we hang out. Thanks for building me fires to keep me warm and opening my door. You always amaze me with the man you are becoming. 

Hello rethinking my love of chocolate. Hello intentional spending. Hello I vote by where I put my bucks. 

Hello should I or shouldn't I? 

Hello Book of Esther. Hello God stopping in my tracks. Hello healing. 

Hello you can accept our offer now. Hello listing a short sale? Hello appraisal. 

 Hello I have a few projects up my sleeve. Do I have time to accomplish them?

Hello Mom's apple crisp. You never let me down.

what are you saying hello to this week?

  1. I enjoy reading your Hello blogs. So I am saying Hello to starting over with a fresh slate this week! Looking back at failures does me no good.

  2. Hello Krissie!! Amen, sista!! Keep looking ahead, you are an amazing woman. I can't imagine you having too many failures. Besides are there ever any real failures? They always teach us something in the end and make us even a better person.

  3. I love all these pictures! Now post the "blush" picture. You know which one I mean ;-) Happy Anniversary to a beautiful couple!

    (your place is looking great- good work!)
