Milestones!

As defined by wikipedia – Within the framework of project management, a milestone is an event that receives special attention.  

Today is a “Milestone” for my handsome, intelligent, amazing son and his beautiful, intelligent and awesome wife!

They have been married 10 years!  It has been so inspiring to watch their family work through the trials and tribulations of life and always come out smiling!

Just a few of their accomplishments (and yes I have touted some of these before – but I am just so proud of everything they do I want to shout it from the rafters!)

Parents of 2 amazing and awesome children, I could on and on with this topic, but today is not about them!

Continued education through the years,

First to get Andy through the school with the Pipe Fitters, now he is a very sought after HVAC guru!  As his kids put it – his job is to keep things that are supposed by hot – hot! And to also keep things that are supposed to be cold – cold!  As you have considered each new employment opportunity presented to you – a very important factor to you has been “will I keep learning”  as you put it so well, you are to young to just show up for work – you need the continued learning experience to make it satisfying!  That makes me proud!

My daughter-in-law received her Associates Degree just last year and this year embarked on her next chapter – prepping for Nursing School.

Home Owners – from before you were married your goal was to own a home and in 2008 you did just that – it is fun to watch you work on those projects that really make a home your own!

Family and Friends – you have many of these and you work to maintain those relationships – from a family reunion in Louisanna to camping with friends at Renaissance Faire in the fall to celebrating Holidays and Milestones with multiple family segments – you work to make it all happen!

The first 10 have been great – the next 10 will be awesome!  (even though you will have 2 teenagers at the end of the next 10)  Now who is feeling old?!

Just a few memories are captured here – most of them are in our minds and our hearts!  Congratulations on 10 years!

Love to you all!
