Today is our 9 year anniversary. It seems like we just got married yesterday, but it feels like we have been together forever. Crazy! Here are a few things that have happened in the last nine years:

Dated 3 weeks before we were engaged
Visited 3 countries
Visited 21 states
Lived in 2 states
Bought 3 homes
Lived in 6 cities
Moved 6 times
Graduated from 2 different colleges
Changed careers 1 time
Had 3 children
Had 5 cars
Gone on family vacation 9 times
Been in 6 car wrecks (mostly Adam)
Received 9 speeding tickets (mostly Adam)
Decided not to have anymore kids 3 times


I love being married to my best friend. I look forward to many more memories. I love you, babe!

The true definition of "marital bliss" is: He finally learned to obey. 9 years of that! That's amazing!

Who would have thought 3 weeks would lead to 9 wonderful years? I am not going to lie... it seems more like you guys are newlyweds, rather than going on 10 years of marriage. Congratulations!

Yay to our favorite people!! Congrats, guys! Those of us who know you, know that 9 years is just the tip of the iceberg! And 9 years means that only one more year until you visit another country with us! We can't wait... We are the Shroed's #1 fans!! Love you guys!!

Happy Anniversary. I have to tell you that I came across a pretty scary picture of you, Treo and I. It was probabaly 6-years ago (before Treo left for dental hygiene school). It's funny how much our looks change in such a little amount of time.

Have a great day!
