Our Silver Jubilee Vow Renewal

On June 6th, 1992 Shawn Sr. and I said "I Do" and on Sunday we said "We Still Do" 25 years later. We pledged our love to each other all those years ago and we’re renewing our commitment that it’ll last a lifetime. We had a family celebration to renew our vows in the beautiful Whetstone Park of Roses, followed by dinner at Mozart’s Piano Cafe'. The Lord has been good to us.

We'll be celebrating our 25th with a 3 week trip to Pennsylvania. It's only about an 8 hour drive from Ohio. We'll be visiting a week each in Hershey, Lancaster, and Gettysburg. We never had a Honeymoon and have never been away from the kids but for more than 2 nights. We homeschooled and are very close but they are young adult now. It’ll be scary leaving home for so long but really fun.
