Married Happily Ever After!

Wow! 6 years ago was one of the happiest days of our lives! We were getting married!! The day was so prefect and beautiful! We have had so many ups and downs. I wanted to do something fun, so I asked Travis why he decided I was to be his wife 6 years ago, this is what he said...I promise I am not adding or taking away anything! :)

• you were nice
• very caring
• you were pretty
• you were fun
• gorgeous eyes
• we liked the same music
• we were both in ministry
• love God
• he was shy, me not so worked
• both loved kids
• I had junk in the trunk (HA!! He said that should really be #1!)
• our first outing we jammed out to Ice Ice Baby & Baby Got Back (yes I danced! He said I won him over with my car dancing skills!! lol)
• my family accepted him ... (tattoos, piercings and all!)
• we both had similar backgrounds...testimonies

Okay so now are my reasons why I wanted him to be my hubby!

• very cute/sexy of course
• looked like a bad boy but really a big teddy bear
• love God
• very caring...will do almost anything for anybody
• kind of shy...but once you got him talking it was over!
• never changed for anyone...what you see is what you get
• a giver to God and others
• respectful
• I could be myself around him
• he liked chunky girls!! LOL
• over came addictions with God's help
• loved kids
• fun to be around
• a big kid...still is!!

So those are just some of the reasons why we wanted to be husband and wife! Now that we have been married for 6 years I could add more to that list. He has been a strong tower in everything that we have been through. He is a wonderful father. He supports me. He doesn't let things bother him like they do me, which is helpful at times. He is who he is, and sometimes I need to learn from that!

This is what Travis added to the list of post-marriage. Great mother, always there in times of need, stronger Christian given all that we have been through, loving wife, considerate of others feelings, and very strong willed. That last one I think is a compliment and negative quality; he smiled BIG when he said it!!

I just thank God for blessing us with each other! We would have not chosen the road that we have been down but I will say we are thankful for it. It has made us who we are today. We have experienced each other in ways we hope other couples will never have to experience each other. I am happy to say we love each other dearly after our long road of 6 years!

When I was given away by my wonderful Daddy!

It took two to marry us..Pastor Steve and Pastor Dwayne!

Yay! We were married!!

Happy Anniversary Baby!


PS. this song playing "How Beautiful", is the song that played while my wedding party and I walked down the isle. The beautiful Cassandra Matlock sang it so beautifully! I loved it!


  1. WOW! Already 6 years! That day God had you two in mind knowing what you would go through. Such a huge task but God knew the heavey road ahead and picked Travis to be there with you and chose Melissa to be there with you Travis. God built you each with skills, talents, and characteristics that when put together made the perfect pair to make it through your journey.
    Your journey not the same as others, your love not the same as others, your family not the same as others, your life together...the same...6 years ago, you said I do, not knowing exacty what that you do. You have conquered so much together - you are strong together!
    Happy Anniversary to my best friends!
    Today celebrate each other!
    We Love you!
    John and Crystal
    we continue to pray for you.....

  2. So glad you have so much to be thankful for. So sorry about Landon. I am only beginning to read your journey, but know that you are in my prayers as you continue your journey of grief.
