28 years ago today…

28 years ago today, I was in Florida getting ready to marry the man beyond my dreams. My dream had been to live in a small house in the backwoods of Maine, keeping chickens and goats and teach in a 1-room school house. Then Kevin came into my life and I gave all my old dreams up in order to JOYFULLY take on a new dream, one that was God-given.

Some of you have read my story. For those of you who haven’t, you might be interested in reading a series of posts I wrote for my children.

Celebrate with me these past 28 years of wonder, excitement, some struggles and hardship, losses and joys – but always, there was Kevin. He was there to be the best thing God ever brought into my life!

So sit back, grab a cup of eggnog (for the season) and a snack and follow me  on my journey that led to today.
