The Art of Life
Photobucket I'm so glad you're here! "The Art of Life" is where I share my journey as an artist & Momma. It's a place where I hope to encourage other women that they are artists too. In this small little space I seek to share, document, and be reminded of God's wonderful grace, all around us. ....And I would be so happy to have you journey alongside me! So grab a cup of coffee and linger for a while. I hope you leave feeling refreshed. Photobucket

Eight Great Years!

~~Can you believe that the 2 crazy kiddos in this picture have been married for 8 years today? When this picture was taken about 22 years ago, I had no idea that the blonde haired, blue eyed boy next to me would be my future husband. And he had no idea that the knobby-kneed girl beside him would be his future wife. We started Kindergarten and First grade together. After that, I moved to a different state for a few years. My family did eventually move back to Oklahoma and Dustin and I were always friends, but just friends. We didn't start dating until after Highschool.
~~When we did start dating, it was amazing how well we just clicked. Maybe it was the fact that we've known each other all our lives. Our relationship was really built on friendship first, and still today Dustin is my very best friend.
~~We were talking the other day about all the fun things we used to do when we were dating. I can remember going roller-blading once and it started to rain. We just kept on skating and laughing as we got soaked. I think we're the same as we were back then, only with a lot of life changes and experiences along the way.
~~That's why I'm thankful for milestones; times to look back and remember, and times to look forward and dream. I'm thankful for the journey that we've been on for the past 8 years. It's been up and down at times, but we've always walked on together. I truly thank God that I have a husband who is still my very best friend.
And you know....I just might go dig out those rollerblades! :)
