Nineteen years ago, Larry and I took a leap of faith, trusting that love would see us through. We each brought two teenagers into the mix, so it was quite a leap.
But guess what? It worked! Love did see us through, and here we are 19 years (and a few gray hairs) later, heading out to celebrate our anniversary at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse.
For today’s Friday Favorites, I thought I’d share a few of my favorites photos from the years in between. (Funny thing, we have a lot more photos together once smart phones and selfies became a thing. Before then, one or the other of us was usually behind the camera.)

Of course, that’s just a sampling of the many good times we’ve had in 19 years. And did you notice the evolution of Larry’s beard? Here’s to the next 19 years!
