Anniversary Contest

Happy Anniversary to Us! 14 years have flown by and we’ve survived five moves, three kids, three pets (not including Teddy the Tadpole that only lived nine hours under our watch), and loads of seriously straining, totally depressing life-is-life situations and loads of wonderfully exciting, very cool life-is-life stuff too. Whew!


As you know, life is not full of lovey dovey romantic music playing while you gaze at each other lovingly (as though I could do that without laughing!)…it’s lots of little moments of choosing to love each other.

So, in celebration of well…Us! I’m giving away a SIGNED copy of Gary Chapman’s The Five Love Languages – plus a $20 gift card to Starbucks so you can enjoy a drink. All you have to do to enter is put a comment on this post. Winner will be randomly chosen on Tuesday, May 26.

Oh – and for extra credit…do you know the rest of my favorite verse about love in the Bible? It starts: “It is better to eat soup with the one you love than…”

    It is better to eat soup with the one you love than…

    It is better to eat soup with the one you love than…
    share your Starbucks vanilla bean frappuccino! (Love you Mike!)

    Fourteen years huh? That’s a long time in today’s “I don’t like you anymore” society of divorce! It’s awesome.

    HAPPY Anniversary! We’re headed for 29 in a couple of weeks – it is definitely a series of choices made whether consciously or unconsciously!!

    It is better to eat soup ONLY if it is low in sodium!!! :-)

    It’s better to eat soup with the one you love …
    once you’ve spent 14 years eating it alone.
