    DITTO. I am blessed among all men to have you for my bride. Thirteen years is just the beginning…….
    (For those of you reading this post other than Shannon, in our home “ditto” is actually a term of endearment shamelessly plagurized from the movie “Ghost”. We have use it for years. I’m really not being as flippant as it may seem.)

    Today is my 13th anniversary, too! And my husband has done/put up with most of your list with me, too.
    Congrats on your day!

    What a lovely bride! Happy Anniversary, Shannon and Hubs. We’re celebrating a milestone this month, too. DP turns 40 on Thursday . . .aughh.

    Such a beautiful bride! Happy Anniversary to you both! My hubby and I celebrated our seventh anniversary yesterday. The hostess who seated us at our celebratory dinner was stunned we’d been married so long. “That’s just unheard of” she said. Such a sad fact about our society. To many more statistic breaking years =)

    Yay! 13 years! I love how you are so sweet to your husband in your blog. It just makes me smile to read about how much you love each other. I’m new to blogging and just started reading yours around the time you guys went away together. You’re too cute. Congratulations!

    But don’t you have to place a dash between each of those nouns/verbs turned adjectives?
    😉 Happy belated anniversary. And yes, that is a fantastic picture.

    Hey, Shannon, just reading through some of your posts. Our anniv. is this Friday – 16 years. You’re right behind us.
    You’ll notice in Paul’s book that he’s coached soccer for years — I just saw your “soccer coaching” listed on this post. Do you coach or your hubby?
    Happy Anniversary!

    What a fabulous list… and what a wonderful year 1994 was for weddings! We celebrated our lucky 13th just a few months ago. Happy anniversary (and many more) to the two of you.

    HEY! I remember that! We were 15 yesterday. You know what frogs say? “Time’s fun when you’re havin’ flies.” Go ahead, tell your kidlets:)

    What a horrible week to be out from blogging! It’s late, but it’s still from my heart: Happy Anniversary to the two of you! May you have decades more fun to come!
