Fourteen years ago today, two incredibly young kids got married. Yes, today is Paul’s and my anniversary! And yes, I said 14. Wow! This picture is of Paul and I in our first little condo. Believe it or not, I was old enough to have graduated and was teaching at Westwood Middle School. Paul, hence the hair, had at this point dropped out of school to join a band. Yep… you read that correctly. Forget medical school. He wanted to be a musician. 🙂
My teaching career lasted four short years before the wind shifted in our lives. I started working for a national printing company that I owe all of my training and printing experience to. For Paul, after a few years traveling the country (yes, actually they were good enough to tour a bit), he got his first photography job. After 6 years of working for another photography company, we opened Footstone in 2008. To be married so young, then to start working together, and having two children… the fact we’re an even stronger unit fourteen years later is a testament to the power of prayer.
While I’m slightly embarrassed to share this picture with my midriff almost showing… Paul is stoked to show off his long hair.
We hope you enjoy the flashback and here’s to working hard for your marriage, the power of prayer, and many more years to come!
