20 Years Married


Things have been on turbo a little bit lately, with a family trip to Chicago, CMN Catholic conference, and lots of decade celebrations of birthdays and anniversaries in our family (more about this soon!) This weekend we finally celebrated our 20th Anniversary (officially a few weeks ago) with an intimate gathering of our immediate family including my parents and brother, and two of our favorite priests, Fr Roger and Fr Leslie.

We started with Mass.

We renewed our vows.

Fr Roger led us through the Enthronement to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our family and for my parents who just celebrated their 50th!

We took some pictures…both Fr Roger and Fr Leslie have been close family friends for over 20 years. Fr Leslie celebrated our Wedding Mass!

We feel so blessed to have this awesome family and these wonderful friends. We are inspired by Fr Roger and Fr Leslie and enjoyed every minute of our visit… the beautiful celebration of the Mass, the faith-filled conversations…
