Anniversary and many changes...

My wonderful husband and I are going to be celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary tomorrow!! There has been so many changes in the past year, all good:)

I have grown so much in so many ways...I have tears just thinking about how God has been working in my life. I not only have lost weight, but gained so much closer to God in the process.

Here is a picture of my husband and I last year on our anniversary vacation.

And here is a recent picture of the two of us taken by one of our daughters. Sorry if this picture isn't very clear. Something about going from my cell phone to my blog doesn't work so well.

The heavy me and the lighter me, were loved by this man either way:) Thank you God for blessing me with such an amazing man!

We are busy, busy, busy.

Life is great as well:) We have been camping, hanging out at the beach every weekend and working of course;)

I am trying to maintain my weight loss still, but I have to admit I am up about 5 lbs. I need to get back on the bandwagon again. It is hard when you are camping and having picnic lunches...I tend to snack more often.

How is the summer going for all of you? I would love to hear from you:)
