17 years

Today we celebrate 17 years of being married. Casey has had the flu all week, so we will postpone couple time till later. He is doing better and that is a big relief.

I decided to write Pedar a limerick. Here goes nothing.



17 years

In 2001, we were young, quick and fancy-free
Those first years we traveled to Jamaica, Mexico, and Italy
We became homeowners in 2002 to a DIY mess
And embraced painting, patching, gardening, and financial stress

We welcomed our first son in 2004
And was gifted with Erik when Casey was four
Projects and date nights took a backseat to kids
Car rides and dinners out required cups with lids

Here we are, 17 years flew by so fast
My heart still skips when I hear Etta James sing, “At Last”
Our story is still unfolding, but now adventures happen close to home
I am so lucky to be married to you Pedar, love your sassy garden gnome


Happy St. Patrick's Day everyone! Check out my leprechauns!!
