          It's about 50 degrees, a little overcast, but warm for early March. My hair turned out well. My dress is too big. It was supposed to have cap sleeves attached. That didn't happen.  I forgot my mascara for all the portraits we had done before the ceremony. I am hungry. But too nervous to eat.  Jenny's hair looks good. She has such thick hair. Wonder what it looks like grown out?  Kristy is SO tan. Lets be real she's over tanned. It's March in Indiana Kristy. You live in Florida. You didn't NEED to fake bake. Tricia is always so encouraging, what an amazing mother she'll be. Elisa came so far to support me on this day. Nikki always looks adorable. And Carla, the only one who's married. She so caring and motherly. I hope we stay in touch.  Keleigh, stop with the banging on the piano. Gosh she's cute with those fat little cheeks. Hali looks so grown up today. I think she's excited to be here. Ok. Time to do this. Dad won't cry. Does dad cry? Mom probably won't stop crying.
         I honestly don't know how fifteen years have passed. I would love to show you some images from our wedding day. But there's not many. I have a leather bound album with "traditional" church shots and one....ONE...shot of the two of us together outside the church. A framed 8x10 thats no longer hanging, but propped up behind my dresser in my bedroom. I should hang that somewhere. I should do a lot of things today. Kraig is coming home soon to finish up laying concrete in the dog's pen. I am going to help him. That's how we're celebrating our 15th anniversary. He asked me if we should wait and do that another time. But when? Starting tomorrow we're traveling non-stop from Louisville, to Bonita, Champaign, to Lauderdale, then Jamaica,  and then back to Bonita. So no. We HAVE to do it today. But I wouldn't have it any other way. We've never been big on celebrating ON a day. We celebrate randomly. We are blessed to have that flexibility. We both own successful business that we're passionate about. Our kids are in a school that we LOVE. Our parents are healthy and semi-retired and live within miles of us. We built our forever home 5 years ago and we pinch ourselves all the time as we take it all in.

        This is what fifteen years looks like for us. Full. Blessed. Good.

       God has blessed us. Our cups runneth WAY over. We will enjoy today. In our muck boots. Feeding chickens and wrangling our kids and dogs. I giggle. This is NOT what we thought 15 years would look like. I am so glad this is it though. We will be celebrating this entire year. Follow our "Crystal Year" with #Johnsonscelebrate15
