The Story of Us... My Fairy Tale part 3


We planned a wonderful wedding with about 75 family and friends in attendance. It was a beautiful FALL day we drove to Lake Tahoe and got married in a little chapel on a hill. It was total and complete perfection. Reception followed on the beach of Lake Tahoe. Such a happy day…


Would you like to guess where a 19 and 16 year old chose for a honeymoon? DISNEYLAND of course… Where dreams really do come true!


It’s been 20 years married today; I am even more in LOVE with “my boy”, Michael… He is the LOVE of my life and we have created 4 beautiful sons, Christopher 17, Johnathan 15, Jeffrey 11, and Tanner who incidentally was born on our 12th anniversary

Happy 8th birthday Tanner

For the record Tanner was born almost 4 weeks early and the BEST anniversary gift I have ever received!



I love you Michael with my whole heart.


Thank you for being my EVERYTHING…
My fairy tale…

Happy Anniversary! What a wild love story, but I have to ask...Were you married in high school or did you graduate early? Just curious!

Congratulations! I love this look into your awesome story, but I am confused...in your sidebar it says you have 5 boys, but you only list 4 in this post today. Am I missing something?

~Kori said...

Ah! I see. Thank you for answering that question...that's cool!! :)

That is amazing! Not many people stay married that long these days and the fact that you were both so young! I married when I was 18 (two months after graduating high school) and we have been married for 21 years now :) and we have 4 beautiful children also. Happy Anniversary!

Aww...Happy Anniversary!

Jenny--Thanks for answering my questions over on my blog. Your parents are very discerning to know that you were ready for marriage at the ripe old age of 16! Hope you had a fun celebration with the hubs.

Hi Jen :->
Charla asked a question I too wondered, did you finish high school? If so, before or after getting married?
I really enjoyed your sharing your romantic beginning with us!! Thanks!!
Brian and I celebrated our 30th this past May. As you know, we too had four sons of our own plus others.
May God continue to use you and Spike for His glory, as well as keep the two of you close.
