Our Christian faith has been the bedrock of our marriage - keeping Christ at the center has enabled us to weather all of life's ups and downs. We make decisions prayerfully and treat each other with grace, knowing we are both imperfect people.
Eighteen years ago we moved to this little farm, not knowing what to expect. It has been quite an adventure raising dairy goats, chickens and ducks! Together we've built fences, barns and coops with our own hands. We've bottle fed baby goats through the night and lost some animals along the way. Through it all our marriage has grown stronger.
There is no one else I would rather have by my side than Peter. We have a rhythm and partnership caring for the animals and the land. We share the chores but also laugh a lot at the antics of our goats. I admire Peter's dedication to help me when the does are giving birth and screaming in his ear while I helping them to deliver their offspring. After 25 years, I would marry him all over again.
Our little farm has a special place in our hearts and our marriage. It's where we have shared so much joy and so much laughter. Where better to celebrate this amazing milestone of 25 years together!
I am endlessly grateful for this life with Peter and excited to see what our next 25 years may hold!
