So It's Been Six Years

Six years ago today I was a blushing bride, jetting off to a beautiful honeymoon suite in paradise. Life was good. I was happy. Tonight, I'll cook up the best meal I can for my love, put the kids down early, drive out in our old minivan that sounds like a thousand crickets are at war, find a new favorite spot in this fun, new city, and talk and talk with the man I call 'J'. Life is good, and I am happy to share it with that beautiful soul.

I have always loved observing your marriage and relationship, hope that doesn't weird you out. You and J have always been such a great example to me of a marriage worth emulating. Love you two! Happy anniversary!

Happy BDay to my 2 college buddies. It's still awesome to think that we, as roomates married hubbies that were friends. I love that little fact, and I hope you guys have a fabulous day!

One of the things I remember from your wedding day was you playing the violin at the wedding breakfast. I loved it!
