5 Beautiful Years

It was five years ago today that Nettl and I were joined in a Holy Union Service by Rev. Rader at College Hill Presbyterian Church in Tulsa. A lot has come and gone since that day, when we had no idea of what the future had in store for us. There have been some very difficult times, not between the two of us, but incoming from a number of sources. People have tried to break us up, come between us, negate us, discriminate against us, dehumanize us, even destroy us, but we have always come back stronger and more dedicated to our marriage and to our family.

We have also been blessed with a large and loyal group of friends and family and I firmly believe that a couple is only as strong as their circle of loved ones. Too, you who are regular readers of our weblogs have been a source of support that we value dearly. So, thanks to all of you for accepting us as we are.

Here’s to Five Beautiful Years, Nettl!

  2. Happy Anniversary you 2. I knew the moment I saw you 2 together that you were going the distance. Your love and devotion to one another is an inspiration to all who know you. I love you both so so dearly.

  3. Having known Steph for all these years, and going through all of her ups and downs with her, I’m so pleased that she found you, Nettl. You’ve done right by my friend and, a wonderful bonus (because, of course, it’s all about me ;-) ), I’ve gained a new friend, too. It is wonderful to see the two of you together, each with her own strengths, meshing so perfectly. Happy Anniversary.
