20th Wedding Anniversary!

When Rich and I said the big "I DO" to each other - 20 years ago today!!! - in snowy Switzerland - we had no idea that 20 years down the track, we'd be in New Zealand - with 5 wonderful children! We had no idea about all the adventures, high- and lowpoints we would experience during these years - - - (probably good that way!).
We had no idea that we would be broke, without assets, not much to call our own (never mind).
YET - richer than the majority of people on this earth - in every sense!
And happy - still happy with each other, too :)!!!
I wanted to celebrate a little bit - and not make dinner today - so Rich picked up pizza, which we had with the 3 "little" ones - (sorry Leilani, you're one of them).
Nathalie and Jeremie had to be at youth group early.
I love you, Rich!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Interesting quotes I recently read:

"Life is a gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to those who come after you. Make your gift an excellent one."


"If you want one year of prosperity, grow grain.
If you want ten years of prosperity, grow trees.
If you want one hundred years of prosperity, grow people." Chinese Proverb

Congratulations!
We didn't know or we would have sent you something! Still might.

We love you and your marriage is a great reminder of how love and support and a great partner are more important than any other possession.

Love,
The Bs
