Blog_Header_KimManninoOn February 23 we will be celebrating our 23rd wedding anniversary.  Recently, I was looking through our wedding album with our daughter and she said, “I never thought of you or dad as separate from each other”.  It made my heart smile that she sees us as a team.

Tony is strong, loving,  affectionate, a great father and leads our family in faith.  This is not to say our marriage hasn’t struggled at times.  But, our commitment to each other has never wavered.  We have learned how to speak the other person’s love language.  He is task oriented and I am relationship driven.  Through bible studies with other couples wanting a better marriage, we have learned skills that make us a strong and loving team.

We have raised three beautiful children, Angela (20), AJ (16), and Joey (16).  With Angela away at college and the boys in high school and working part-time, we find ourselves entering a new time in our relationship.  Now, we can go out on a date, or decide at the last minute to take a drive, or go on a hike together without getting a babysitter.  We are rediscovering our friendship with passion and excitement.  I must say it is fun to sneak a kiss with Tony and feel like I did when we first got married.

Happy Anniversary Tony!  With all my heart I can say, you are  just my type.
