LOVE doesn't make the world go round

"Love doesn't make the world go round.
Love makes the ride worthwhile".

Franklin P. JonesToday is our 7th wedding anniversary

and I have to tell you, it has been quite the ride.

As many of you know, I was very ill when we got married.
Jeff played matchmaker (still saving up for the finder's fee-hehe).

We have been through the good, the bad, and the downright ugly.
I wouldn't change a thing.

At times we felt like we were on an Olympic bobsled course

hanging on for dear life.

Enough said!


I am so fortunate to have this wonderful
man in my life.

He is a source of strength when I am not so strong.
He loves unconditionally.
He loves my sons as if they were his own.
I have truly been blessed and I know it!



This photo was taken last night at his company party.

I can say for sure that LOVE makes the ride worthwhile.

Honey, I love you so much.

Here is to another 7 years (bumps and all).

Happy Anniversary you two love-birds!
What a beautiful photo.....
Gary and I need to have a new photo taken maybe next spring for our 35the anniversary..
Love is wonderful and at times very unexpected.
I keep telling my daughters that their (true love) will find them..just when they don't expect it.
You have found your love and happiness, you both have been blessed..
Big hugs, Elizabeth
