happy birthday to my man...

Forney_DeckerFamilyFeb.2011-193

I am a very lucky girl to still have this man look at me like THIS even after almost 15 years together. We have literally grown up together. Looking back, I can hardly believe we made it, through all of life's ups and downs. Teenage years, and our twenties,turning 30 something, babies, and houses, jobs, building a business, and everything else in between. When we got married people said it would never last. Heck, when we went on our first date people snickered and said it would never last. But, here we are. A decade and a half later... chapters and chapters later in our story, and he still looks at me with those eyes! God had a plan all along...

Sending happy birthday wishes, to the man who has made my dreams come true...!
I hope that I am able to make you half as happy as you make me.
I can't wait to write more chapters in our book!

XOXO,
Manda
(i don't think my husband has ever (or very rarely) ever called me Mandy... it's always Manda, and that I am, his Manda!)
