Happy 12th Anniversary- Sunday the 19th!

These are the beautiful roses my husband gave to me in front of all our families of 80 campers last Friday. He gave witness to how we promised each other forever- never ever mention the word divorce. Thank the Lord I am married to an amazing man who loves me that much!!!!!
This is the room that we stayed in at Lloyd Plantation- near Alexandria, LA. It was beautiful!!!!
This was the view out of our back porch. Serene, peaceful, and wonderful!!!!
Our kitchen in our room.
Our front porch....
These are pics from the main house we toured on Sunday....It was amazing!!!! Look at the molding.
How wonderful is this?
Looking out to the courtyard area...the house on the left- the place we stayed was the original commisary.
One of the suites inside the house that you can stay in.
Looking from the balcony out front of the main house. Beautiful!!!
Look at that! What a history. The home is 200 years old. It has been really well revamped to the original as much as possible. Fun stories to go along with it. Actually the original Lloyd owner of the plantation- sugar, was from Lloyd bank in England! He was a family outcast and they paid him "inheritance" to get him away from the banking business which he was not good at.

Our time away was short, but wonderful!!!! Thank you to Sarah for looking after our babes while we were away. We sooo appreciate all of her help to our family!!!!!

I am truly in love with my husband, and so grateful that God matched us up together. I have no idea what I would do or be without him & HIM!!!!


  1. Happy Anniversary! What a beautiful location! I would have loved that too. ;o) Congrats on a long a beautiful marriage...with MANY more years to come!

  2. I just popped over from A Place Called Simplicity to say that I am really proud of you for fasting for the first time. One of the fruits of the Spirit is self-discipline, and I am praying that God will encourage and bless you as you begin this journey! Love from a sister in NE!
