In some ways it feels like so much longer (in a good way!) and in others it feels like just yesterday we had our feet in the sand in Hawaii saying "I do".  So much has happened in 3 years, we found out right after our honeymoon that we came home with a little souvinere from Hawaii, now named Taryn 😉  Being pregnant and having her in the first year of marriage seemed like a lot, then 2 weeks after she was born Jason’s adoption of Ty was finalized, 3 weeks after that, the storm hit and everything changed big time.  Living away from home for months, in various places, with both sets of in-laws, rebuilding the house over the next few years and all the challenges that brings.  Starting a new photography business.  Deciding to go for baby Stradtner #3, selling our home, a big move to Texas, new schools, new job for Jason.  I think it’s safe to say that life at the Stradtners has been anything but boring!  It’s been fun, chaotic and thankfully, filled with love every step of the way.

Happy Anniversary Jase, I love you and marrying you was the best decision I ever made.

    Happy Anniversary, Lynds and Jase! I must admit I, too, have had Hawaii on my mind today. It was such a fabulous beginning to your married life! Your love is obviously strong and true to have made it through all that you have in the past 3 years. But, you know, at least from my point of view there has been far more happiness and good things, than bad. And the tough times certainly made you stronger and you know that together you can get thru anything! I’m so glad Jason came into your life …. even if you did meet because of your first flooded home. God has a plan for your family and hopefully its “smooth sailing” for a while! I love you all !


  • Happy Anniversary!!!! Thanks for sharing your world with all of us. I wish you all the joy and happiness. Your mom is right, you two can go through anything together.
