15 Years Together – Why I Love My Wife

aim-message

We were in high school when we started dating. May 12th, 2001 was when it all began. I remember walking down the hallway and I looked over at you and said “hi” only a few days earlier. It has been a wild ride since then. Fifteen years is an amazing amount of time to be with someone. We have had our battles, but we have also have had plenty of wonderful moments. Here are a few of those moments.

2001

The year we started dating. This photo is great because little does anyone know, Destiny is in excruciating pain from hurting her neck the day before.

2001-May 12th 2001

2002

My senior year of high school. I didn’t play football so that’s not my jersey. But my wife was definitely one of the best dancers in the pom squad! Also, apple juice and BBQ chips was a breakfast of champions.

2003

Lazy days with Destiny. There were a lot of days like these. We would watch movie after movie. We’ve seen some of the best movies of all time together.

2003-Laying Around

2004

Breaking Benjamin concert! We’ve also seen some awesome shows. Our first concert together was The Anger Management concert with Eminem, but this Breaking Benjamin show was a concert I won’t ever forget.

2005

Pointfest! I forgot a little bit from Pointfest. I probably had a little too much fun here. What can you expect from a newly minted 21 year old. How can you not go crazy when Mudvanye is performing?

2006

Our love continues to grow. I really have no idea what we are doing here. We were probably having a good time somewhere together. I love being together with this little cutie.

2007

Our wedding day. One of the best days of my life. You were an amazingly beautiful bride.

2008

Relaxing in the park. More relaxing days just hanging out with you. We should do this a little more often.

2008

2009

Family pictures! We did a little photo shoot along some trails and were able to snap some really great pictures of us together. I remember that this was just a few weeks before we found out about our newest surprise.

2010

Our baby girl will be born the day after this photo was taken. It was one of the most amazing things ever. Who would have thought that this was the last night we would be just two.

 2011

Abby’s first Cardinals game! We love the Cardinals and have forced our kids to love them. Now Abby is a big fan and we couldn’t be happier. Indoctrinate them when they are young!

2012

A trip to the zoo! As you can see Tiggy came with us to the zoo. Four years later and he is still a popular sidekick in Abby’s adventures.

Fireworks and someone is pregnant again! We didn’t find out until after our vacation but Destiny is most definitely pregnant in this picture with our baby boy! Abby is also picking her nose… I think…

2014

A lazy day with all of us. A year later and all four of us are relaxing. It’s not really relaxing when you’re chasing kids around the house all day everyday. This is one of the rare photos of all four of us together in one shot.

Our St. Louis Cardinals family! Teach them young like I say! We love our St. Louis Cardinals!

Richie

My name is Richie and I am a 33 year old father of two. My daughter is seven years old and my son is three. I am married to a beautiful woman named Destiny. She is the foundation of our family, and without her, none of this would be possible. During the day I work as a network administrator for a local school district. At night I can be found illustrating books, working on websites, or creating music, but more than likely though I am spending time with my kids.
