Wedding bells are ringing....

This is it...they're going to the chapel!!! Robyn (Barbara's sister) and John are getting married this weekend! We are looking forward to to enjoying in the weekend's festivities of meals, receptions, ceremonies, parties and last but not least hugs and kisses from our favorite Bride and Groom! Here's a toast to many wonderful years of wedded bliss you two! We love love love you both!

While we were getting ready to head out to Colorado for the weekend's celebration, it got me (Barbara) thinking about marriage. And if you know anything about me, you probably know I'm a sucker for a quote...the good, the bad and the ugly. I've filled two journals full of quotes since I started collecting in high school and I just keep seeing some that I find myself just having to jot down. So with that being said, in honor of Robyn and John's wedding, here are a few of my favorite quotes about marriage...enjoy!
