Celebrating 23 Years — 38 Comments

  1. Barbie:

    Happy belated anniversary! I loved your list this week – you are truly blessed. My husband and I celebrated 27 years of marriage in June and we knew each other less than a year before our marriage. Like you, our marriage has not been without trials, but I think many of those have served to draw us closer together as a couple.


  2. Congratulations to you and your hubby Barbie!  What a sweet story.  You look too cute in that wedding photo.  Sounds like lots of good memories.

    Blessings and love,

  3. So wonderful! My 20th wedding anniversary is right around the corner and our story is similar to yours. Happy Anniversary!

  4. Barbie, Happy Anniversary!  Sounds like you had a very lovely weekend.  Couples like you give me hope for a long marriage one day.  Warm hugs.

  5. Happy 23rd anniversary!!! What a beautiful looking couple. 🙂
    Marriage is tough but with the love of God and lots of forgiveness we can make it through. Blessings on your marriage and your family.


  6. Barbie, our stories are so similar.  In a couple weeks we will celebrate our 22nd anniversary.  We met in July 1988 and were engaged in January 1989.  We were married in September 1989.  I had only known my hubby 6 months by the time we got engaged, but I knew the minute I met him that I was going to marry him.  And it does just keep getting better. 🙂  Wonderful list of blessings!

  7. Thank you for sharing your list. Congrats on 23 years! I look forward to when my husband and I celebrate that! Thanks so much for visiting my blog and your sweet comments!

  8. Happy Anniversary to you!

    I am with you on the financial blessings…..we have been getting some of those to help keep us going.

    Have a great week!

  9. Happy Anniversary Barbie!  Congratulations! I did not know my husband for a full year before we were married either. When you know, you know, right?! Such a beautiful list of gifts. A beautiful list of love! A paddle boat on the lake sounds like so much fun. 🙂

  10. Beautiful!  Happy Anniversary!  What a cute couple.  You guys still look the same.  I am so glad that God provide a way and a time for you to be able to get away and be just you!   So thankful for His faithfulness the last 23 years and for what will come.  He is so good to us Barbie, thankful for your blog and your wise words and friendship.  Glad you had a blessed weekend.

  11. Happy Anniversary, Barbie!  We just celebrated our 31st and, while it has been far from easy many times, we have made the decision to remain true to our vows.  God is faithful…and all we have and who we are we owe back to Him!  Blessings abundant to you,  Lolli  (aka Lisa)

  12. Congratulations, Barbie. I have a husband whom I am so thankful for as well. Love him, love him, love him. Thanks for your list…encouraged me to be thankful in all things today.

  13. Awwww Barbie.  Congratulations!  Happy Anniversary!  You look lovely in your wedding gown.  So young and innocent … ah, can you imagine knowing NOW what you didn’t know then? 

    We are right on your heels.  Our 22 is this November.

    I’m glad you had a special weekend!

    Love ya!
