14 Years and Counting: Ivory #WeddingAnniversary


Ivory symbolizes purity and innocence. Rare and beautiful, this precious commodity signifies the integrity and fidelity of the marriage relationship and the extraordinary sense of commitment two people must have to make a marriage last fourteen years.  Loyalty and devotion are qualities worthy of commemoration.   - Jewelers of America

Wow, I can't believe that it has been 14 years since I  committed myself to a great man, the love of my life.  He has been the best partner, supporter, companion, friend I can  share my thoughts and feelings, and the best husband I could ever ask for.  Thank you Hon for all these wonderful years  that we have been married.  

2003 -  Legazpi City, Philippines - The beginning of it all.   The foundation of what we had and still have  till today.
2003 Cebu City Philippines - Our honeymoon  after our Civil Wedding 
Our second wedding (church wedding)  - 2004
2005 our daughter was born - I was scared for the responsibility  of a Mom but you were there to assist me.  It made it easier knowing that I can lean on a strong shoulder.  
2006 - Pensacola Florida -our first travel  since our  daughter was born.  I feel in love with the  Florida weather.  I wish we could have that weather here in WV, that would be a dream come true lol.  It was nice  feeling like I was in the tropics again.
Pensacola Florida 2006
2007 - Our son  was born.  Motherhood was never an easy job but you were there for me every time I needed a boost so thank you for that.  I am so blessed to have a husband who truly love his children.  I could only wish that every father  would be like you.  Every children deserves a  Dad  like you.
2008 - Chinhae South Korea  - Spending the  last two years of your tour in the Navy with you  in the land of the morning calm  was a great adventure.  It was a great experience I will never forget.  To be able to  experience it with our children was  a blessing.
2009 - Seorak San Park, South Korea - Traveling in South Korea was  fun and a  great adventure for us.  
2010 - Celebrating our 7th Wedding Anniversary - I can still remember when you told me the  7 year  itch and I was like "What is that?"  So glad we never had an issues with that.

2011 - Disney World, Pensacola Florida - Another great adventure for us especially for the  kiddos.  It was a magical way of celebrating our 8th year anniversary.
2012 - First Niagara Pavilion, Burgetstown PA - Attended a  Jimmy Buffet  Concert, it was an experience I will never forget.  This was the second time we have gone without the kids.  It was short-lived but fun.  I realized that  attending concert is a not a good idea  for a person with  migraine like me lol.  I was trying to enjoy  the moment  despite the  migraine but when the drunk guy poured a beer on my back, we left.

2013 - Settlers Ridge, Pittsburgh PA - Even a simple  anniversary celebration turned out to be special because  you always find a way to turn  ordinary adventure into an extra ordinary one.

2014  Beaver Valley Mall, Monaca PA
2014 - special moment  at home.  
2015 - Jamestown, Virginia
2016 - Tappan Lake Park, Deersville, Ohio
2017 at Home
Dang, looking back at these photos makes me realize how much we aged in 14 years lol.  However, physical change is  normal, what is important is that we still love and respect each other .  Happiness  in marriage comes within.  I am so glad that God gave me a man who  truly appreciates  who I am and a man who loves his family dearly.  Together we will try to raise our  children the best we  can.  I pray that God will bless us with great health so we can grow old together.
