Friday Favorites-7.30.21

Like every Friday, I’m teaming up with my girl, Andrea to share some FAVORITES.  Today, I have a BIG FAVORITE…

July 30th is a special day in our house.  On this day, SIXTEEN YEARS AGO, Tab Slaughter and I got married in a church in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, in front of all of our friends and family.  Who’d have thought we’d be living in McKinney, Texas, with four kids sixteen years later?  Not me, that’s who.  I was certain during that first year of marriage my homesick self would convince Tab we should move back to Missouri, but it was never the right time and here we are.

The last sixteen years definitely haven’t been easy but my goodness-this married life gets so much sweeter over time.

Maybe after sixteen years you realize that he’s ALWAYS gonna do the dishes the “wrong” way which just happens to be the opposite of how I do them and maybe he’s realized that my side of the closet is ALWAYS gonna be messy.  Instead of focusing on those things that can drive us nuts about each other, sixteen years later we focus on ALL the good.

And there’s so much good with this guy by my side.

Happy SIXTEEN Years, Tab Slaughter!  I love you so much and can’t wait to see what the next SIXTEEN hold!
