January 2008: 10 YEARS!!!

Michael and I have been married for 10 YEARS!!! Isn't that wonderful? It seems a little overwhelming to summarize 10 years of marriage in a post. What I will say is that it feels absolutely amazing to know how much I am loved by my husband. We just had a good laugh on how he thinks he could first, close his eyes, and then say or do anything, and be able to see in his mind exactly what my facial expression would be in reaction to what he did. He then proceeded to give me some examples which were pretty hilarious and indisputable as to how I would react. It was a little frustrating to know I was that predictable, but also to realize he truly does know me. I love him so much and thank my Heavenly Father for him daily.

For our anniversary we were able to get away to Solana Beach for 4 days while my Mom watched the kids. Despite both being sick, we had a wonderfully relaxing time together. It was really rejuvenating and allowed time for us to realize how much we enjoyed being together, just the two of us. Here are a few pictures. The first one is of us at our favorite restaurant, Pomodoro, a fresh Italian place in Laguna Beach. I always get the butternut squash ravioli- to die for. Its always frustrating for me to have someone else take our picture, the hostess was nice though. The second one is of us at Solana Beach, Cliffs more like it. I used my tripod this time. The sight was beautiful. I love the feel of the ocean air and the soothing sound of the ocean waves. I had to feel the water, despite the freezing temperatures. I love the water, I was never the girl on the shore, always the fish in the sea. I collected some shells and rocks for the boys.

We are very excited for our future! It sure is wide open with possibilities:-)
Here is our engagement photo I found in my Mom's house. Aren't we cute? This was taken in Aspen Grove, UT where we met.
