Happy Wedding Day to me!

Ok so its our Anniversary, nine whole years! Crazy how fast the time has gone. I know I probably should write some gushing love sappy piece about my wonderful husband whom I adore, the amazing father of my children, my best friend. But for some reason my mind has been just racing over all that has happened in the last nine years. So Honey I love you! Look at all that we have accomplished since we were married:


  • Eric graduated with his MBA.

  • I got my first full time teaching job.

  • Duh we got married!


  • Eric got his MIS.

  • I had surgery.

  • Found out we were pregnant with first baby

  • Moved to Austin

  • Eric got his first post graduate real job at Norwood.


  • G-man was born

  • Traveled a lot to Florida to visit my parents.

  • Lost both my grandfather and Eric's grandfather.


  • Moved into our first home.

  • Found out was pregnant with second child.

  • Lost Eric's other grandfather


  • Bee was born.

  • Eric traveled all the time, including many trips to Hawaii

  • Found out we were pregnant with number four.


  • Had T-rex.

  • I got really sick.

  • In laws came home from their mission.


  • Sold our first home, for exactly what we bought it for six years ago, crazy market.
  • I lost my grandmother.

  • Moved to Hawaii

  • Found out we were pregnant with number five.

JUST KIDDING on the number five thing! Just seemed like I had a pattern going on :)

It has been a wonderful nine years and I look forward to many more and all the many things that will happen. I know there are a lot of gaps in my time line, especially because my mind is not fully functioning with a screaming child on my lap.

You got me as well. I was excited and jealous at the same time because I wanted a #5, but we have decided that we are done. Maycie turned 14 months today! I should make a time line because Jason and I are coming up on 10 years. Would be interesting to see what we have all done.
