May 5th, A Day of Celebration!!! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY LAUREN & THOMAS!

May 5th is a special day in our household! Three years ago today, my oldest daughter, Lauren, married the love of her life, Thomas. They were high school sweethearts (like my husband and I) and had dated 8 years before they got married. I have posted this picture before, but it is a favorite one of mine, so I am going to post it again. That was one of the happiest days of my life... the wedding of Lauren and Thomas. Lauren was a beautiful bride and we were so proud to be welcoming Thomas into our family to be our son-in-law! He is a very special young man and we love him just like a son!

Lauren got married while in graduate school, but completed her Master's degree and got a wonderful job with a large accounting firm. I am so proud of her accomplishments and I know that she will go far in her field!

I hope you have a wonderful day, celebrating your 3 year anniversary and that you have many, many more happy years of marriage!

May 5th is also the 4 year anniversary of my youngest daughter, Adelaide's, thyroid cancer surgery. I praise God for both of these precious young ladies and the joy they bring to my life!!! They mean the world to me and I am so happy to celebrate with them both today! God has blessed all of our lives and I am so proud of my girls!
Adelaide just finished up her junior year in college on Tuesday and will begin an internship this coming Monday at a local children's hospital for 5 weeks. Adelaide is studying to be a Child Life Specialist. After her internship, she will work as a Nanny the rest of the summer.

I feel so blessed to have such sweet daughters, who have not only been my daughters, but are like my best friends. We enjoy spending time with each other and making memories together! It is a joy to celebrate with each of my girls today. I wish we could be with each other today, but I hope to see you both soon. Praying for you both on this joyous day!

  5. What a beautiful post! My Thomas and I are high school sweethearts too and we will have dated 8 years when we get married! Isn't that funny!

    Your daughters are truly blessed to have you as their mother!

  6. Is Adelaide yet unhitched? I have a 21 year old, and he's a keeper! Don't you just love a total stranger trying to marry off your daughter to her son?

    Thanks for stopping by the blog this week and investing some of your time into my life. It's been a crazy week, and once life slows down (does that ever happen?), I hope to re-visit here and get to know you better. I thought I would be an empty-nester by now, but then I went and had two more children in my late 30's. I suppose I'll be ready for the "home" right about the time my youngest heads off to college. Have mercy and good gravy!

    Blessings and peace~elaine

  7. Such precious memories! Enjoy each and every day with them. Our daughters are so special......

  8. Beautiful girls! Daughters are special gifts from God. I tell mine all the time that God knew I would need her... and He was right. She is also my best friend. She calls me "Mom" most of the time, but I love it when she says "Mama" and she knows it. So, she says it often because she knows it makes me happy!

  9. I enjoyed this post. You are so blessed with two very special daughters. They are blessed to have you for a Mom. It is so wonderful that you girls are so close. I am so blessed to know all of you. Love ya.

  10. I would agree that May 5th is a wonderful day for you and your girls to celebrate. What a lovely family you have!


  11. I love how you love your family...I think it's what makes me feel a connection to you! Your daughters are beautiful!

  12. You are truly blessed to have these two precious young women in your life!

    Praise God for all his wonderful blessings!


  13. May the 5th is a wonderful day for you and your family. Your girls are beautiful and I know you are proud of them!
    Your girls are lucky to have a wonderful mother as you too!

  14. You are blessed indeed. May you have a Happy Mothers Day, everyday.

  15. What a sweet family. It looks like you have much to be thankful for. We have a wedding coming up later this month (our eldest son is getting married! Yeah!) so I am loving seeing the picture of your beautiful girl as a happy bride. Such an exciting day :)

  16. Thanks for the anniversary wishes! We can't believe that we have already been married for three years! Time has really flown by!
