Our Wedding Anniversary

Today is our 14th wedding anniversary.  Wow!  It is so hard to believe that fourteen short years have passed us, unless you take into consideration the following:

*Andy has worked for two companies in that time
*Andy passed his SIT and his LS license during these years
*Amy has worked for LPS in 5 different buildings
  *Amy has influenced the lives of at least 136 students 
  (hopefully in a positive way)
*We've experienced the birth of three beautiful children 
   & the loss of one angel
*We've lost five grandparents during this time
*We've gained one niece and four nephews
*We've gained a sister in law and gained and lost a brother in law
*We've lived in three apartments and three houses
*We've owned five different vehicles
*I've gained at least 20 pounds (can't speak for the hubby :) )
*Also, gained more wisdom about life and love than 14 years ago! 

Wedding party:  Tim Claver, Denise Stevenson, Kim Moreland, Andy Schmidt, Dale Broeker, Chad Kassmeier, Andy & Amy Broeker, Todd Vest, Jill Vest, Doug Brown, Cari Brannen and Jai Andrist

Congratulations!!! I love the photos. Such fantastic color choices on the dresses. Did you both do anything exciting? Today is our third and we are waiting for the weekend to go fly our kite in celebration.

Happy Anniversary! 14 years is a long time! We are already going to be celebrating 5 years this fall and I cannot believe how fast the time has gone! It will be really crazy when we hit 10 years. Hope you were able to celebrate if only in a small way!

Wow!!
I love to look at wedding pictures. I must say that you and Andy haven't changed a bit. Not even the slightest bit of wear and tear from the kids. :)
I think mine have worn me down quite a bit. Love them to pieces anyway. :)

WOW! That is a flash from the past. I have gone from short hair to long hair to even longer hair back to short hair and the whole time just continually gaining weight!!!!!
Happy Anniversary. I can hardly believe how fast 14 years just flies by. I really wish that life would slow down a little!
Poeple are right....you and Andy (Drew) have not changed a bit. How in the world do you look so good? Whatever the secret is, you really should share!

I looked at that first photo and though what a cool idea, Amy dressed up in her wedding dress and they took a picture. You really haven't changed a bit. I had to look at the second photo before I realized that was your original wedding picture. :)

Thanks for all the anniversary wishes! It was nice of you to comment!

Hello Broeker family. That photo takes me back a few years. We too are a few days away from 14 years. Hope all is well.
