Happy 17th Anniversary!

Well, no recipes posted here today because 17 years ago, I married Mr. CEK (let's see if he notices this..heehee). Sure, it hasn't been an easy road. Marriage, or any commitment for that matter, takes work and patience. And for those of you that know our family, we've had many highs and even more lows... Cancer, Troubled pregnancies, Surgeries (my goodness, I could pay for an entire hospital wing with the amount of surgeries we've had combined alone!). But, we've persevered, have two beautiful children, and a great support system with our sometimes crazy but wonderful family and amazing friends. Who could ask for anything more?


So today, I'll leave you with these lyrics from a song that came out several years ago by Kelly Clarkson. To me, this is what marriage is all about. I love you Don~here's to many more years to come! xo 


P.S..Gotta love the 90's! Look at all that 'poof' and those glasses...my goodness! :)


"Thankful" by Kelly Clarkson
You know my soul
you know everything about me there's to know
you know my heart
how to make me stop & how to make me go
you should know i love everything
about you don't you know

that i'm thankful
for the blessing
and the lessons that i've learned w/you
by my side
that i'm thankful so thankful for the love
that you keep bringing in my life
in my life
Thankful so thankful

You know my thoughts
before i open up my mouth & try to speak
you know my dreams
must be listening when i'm talking in my sleep
i hope you know
i love having you around me don't you know

that i'm thankful for the blessing
and the lessons that i've learned w/you
by my side
that i'm thankful so thankful for the love
that you keep bringing in my life in my life

Don't you know that i'm thankful for the moment
when i'm down you always know how to make me smile
thankful for the joy that your bringing in my life

for the lessons that i've learned
for the trouble i've known
for the heartache & pain
that you've thrown my way
when i didn't think i could go on
but you made me feel strong
with you I am never alone

thankful so thankful

thankful for the blessing
and the lessons that i've learned w/you
by my side
that i'm thankful so thankful for the love
that you keep bringing in my life in my life
thankful so thankful

when i'm down you always know how to make me smile
thankful for the joy that your bringing in my life
thankful so thankful
