Our 6th Anniversary

Daniel and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary on May 24, 2009! If you all don't mind, I just have to brag on my sweet husband. He planned our very first anniversary trip to Charleston, SC without any input from me! He didn't even tell me where we were staying or anything we would be doing to make it all a surprise for me. It was the best trip ever! I think I enjoyed it even more than our honeymoon because once you have little ones a break just to enjoy anything as a married couple alone means SO MUCH MORE! I'm sure those of you with little ones know what I am talking about. We lived in 2 different states right up until our wedding day and then had children right away so it has never been possible to do do as much together as we would have liked. I wouldn't change anything about our past for the world (other than get married a year sooner like Daniel always says:-) but it was nice to be able to have that time alone together! Thankyou Lord! and a BIG Thankyou to Nana and Pops Rich for keeping our kids so we could do this!

Here we are in downtown Charleston .
My anniversary gift to Daniel, 2 pairs of jeans he desperately needed! Daniel planned out the day of our Anniverary just the way he knew I would want it:-) We started the day by having breakfast at the Charleston cafe, then doing a 5 1/2 mile hike across the West Coleman bridge which was absolutely gorgeous. Then we came back and took advantage of our hot tub before getting ready for the best surprise of all. A real dinner cruise around Charleston complete with live music and private table by the window!

Our hike across the West Coleman bridge

A visit to the Boone Hall Plantation. You may recognize this house, this is where parts of the DVD " The Notebook" was filmed. This is the house where Allie lived with her parents.

Sweetheart, Thank You for planning this trip and making it so perfect! It meant so much to me! I had the best time ever. These have by far been the best 6 years of my life and I love you with all my heart!

your wife

WOW, do I ever love being married to someone I loved and waited so many years to marry! It was worth every tear I cried and all the pain I felt living so far away from him. Only God could give us a marriage like this and I know without a doubt that it is a true gift from Him...

Looks like so much fun! As much as I adore our little boy and being his mommy, I wouldn't mind escaping with my husband for a couple of days. A couple of HOURS would even be fine with me!

And you don't even look pregnant in these pictures. I totally ency/congratulate you!

Thanks Alexis! but the only reason I don't look pregnant in those pictures is because there aren't any side shots! I will try and post some of the belly soon:-)
