Celebrating our 27th Anniversary

Today is our 27th Anniversary! It is really hard to believe that we have been married that long….but when we see our children grown and  some our grandchildren almost grown….I guess it is true!

Mac & I married back in 1984 and blended our families to make one. I think overall we have done that pretty well. We’ve had great days, ok days, and some really rough days with our blended family…but I still think it has all been worth it! We have 5 children with spouses, 17 grandchildren, and now 6 great-grandchildren! We love our kids & grandkids more than anything in this world and I really hope that they know that. We try to show them this as often as we can.

Here’s a little look at our family….

We Love all of you guys!!!


Mac & I are not only husband & wife, but we continue to be best friends after all these years! Of course, some day's I would really like to hit him over the head with a skillet, but whatcha gonna do…LOL.

We are loving our retirement! We actually get to see the kids more now than when we were both working…still not as much as we would like. Hopefully we can spend more time with all of them this next Summer & Fall.

We have also made so many new friends on this Full-time lifestyle that we are living that we probably would have never met otherwise! We are so grateful that we have had this opportunity to meet and become friends with all of these people!!! Hugs to all of you!

Hopefully Mac & I will have many, many more anniversaries to celebrate together! I Love you, Mac!


Stay tuned for a very busy Christmas weekend!!
