9 years together

Nine years ago today, we held hands and exchanged words laden with hopes and dreams, promising to honor and better one another. Words cemented in our hearts, at times burning with joy, and other times dim with the vulnerability of it all.

How those promises turned into a home with 2.5 precious children buzzing in our happy lives, is really all a mystery I never could have envisioned to be so sweet.

So, my dear best friend. Thank you for you. For us.



(Note to self: more photos of us, okay?)

Hugs!!!!

Lisa said...

Congrats! Love those wonderful photos through the years!

And I was wondering the same thing as Jen...did you say 2.5 kids? Don't leave us to ponder on our own. If there's something we need to know, then spill it! :)

Have a fabulous day, and many more great years to come!

How did I miss this exciting news? .5 child?? I am so excited for you. Hugs to you both on your special day.

Brenda said...

Congratulations to you and Ron, my friend. And what a clever way to sneak in your wonderful news! I'm serious--you schedule a real date night and drop off the 2 kids at my house (you'll have to take the .5 with you for now : ). Sorry I couldn't offer that for your special night, but please take the rain check.

Carol said...

Happy Anniversary and congratulations!

.5 of a kid - should I also be saying congratulations on wonderful news as well?

2.5 kids?!?!? You've been holding out on me!!! Oh, it is always so wonderful to see you post ... even if I rarely make the blog rounds these days :( I loved your potty training story - poetic. I just got done potty training Cougar, too *yeah* Your photos are complete works of art and your girls are precious as can be. I am so glad to know you and catch a small glimpse of the wonderful wife, mother, and woman you are!!! {{{{HUGS}}}}}

Wow, Happy Anniversary! Here is to many more!!! And what's with the fraction of a kid? Inquiring minds want to know :)
About the Karate. I was a lot older than you when I started and it was just fine. I do Tang Soo Do, which is not as much about jumping around as Taikwando. I love it, it's great exercise and you can so do this!!! I'm a second degree Black Belt, have been doing it for about 7 years now, so get moving girlfriend!
