15 years today, I married my soul mate..........

I had so much fun on my wedding day and laughed so hard that you can barely see my eyes open in most of the pictures. But hey, my dress was kicking!!! I think back and that day still brings some great memories. So much fun and love surrounded by my amazing family and friends. We had over 400 people at our wedding....yes, 439 to be exact. How did that happen? We are Puertorican and we procreate. What can I say? We also like to have parties. Well as you can tell by the picture, today I celebrate my 15th year wedding anniversary. Can you believe it? I think back and it really doesn't feel that long......(although when I am not a happy camper with my man...I feel like it's been a freakin lifetime...LOL). Seriously, I am one happy girl. I can honestly say that I love my husband more today than that fateful day I married him. We have grown together, have ironed out some major kinks, and have rededicated ourselves to continue to preserve the sanctity of our marriage. It has not always been easy, but golly, have we worked damn hard!!!! It continues to pay off.

So what have I learned in the past 15 years? I will share my 15 top lessons.

1. To forgive even when forgiveness is not deserved.
2. To love unconditionally although at times you truly do not FEEL LOVE.
3. That commitment is work and it's not based on emotion.
4. To remember to take care of ME....without me, this marriage would not be complete.
5. That vows are not meant to be taken lightly.
6. That humour is FREE and is a great tool for marriage.
7. Respect is indeed an ingredient that should never stray from this union.
8. That you should never loose yourself as a women in a marriage...it is a partnership.
9. To make sure my voice is heard.
10. To appreciate the little things He does for me.
11. To TELL him how much I appreciate his help.
12. To share my thoughts, because HE is not a mind reader. (WHO KNEW?)
13. That life is truly too short and I need to focus on the positive
14. To state what you mean and want and listen in return.
15. To ask GOD for help and wisdom daily, because without HIM, I would not have the marriage or the spouse I have today. My heavenly Father continues to be the center of my marriage.

I do not know what tomorrow has in store for us, but I can guarantee, that we will do whatever it takes to make sure that we continue this journey we have embarked on.

I am off to celebrate with my husband. But before I leave:
