…and still…

Our first picture as a couple.

Sunday, Hubby and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary.  Though, we’re in the dead of winter, the weather was pretty much the same as it was 6 years ago.  A lovely, 65+ degree day.  We kept our celebration pretty low key this year.   A week or so prior, I booked our go-to sitter and made dinner reservation at a restaurant we’ve been wanting to try out.  Saturday, I took RJ out with me to run some errands.  When we arrived home, RJ working off of a 20 minute nap was driving me nuts.  Hubby asked if I needed a drink.  A question I found a little strange, especially there wasn’t any chilled wine in the fridge.  He kept asking so I checked out the wine cabinet to find it fully stocked! He usually replenishes my supply, he’s not a wine drinker, for my birthday.  He didn’t this year, so this was a pleasant surprise.  He also got a frame for our marriage license.  *We haven’t framed that or our degree…*

Sunday morning as we were getting ready for church,we try to explain to RJ that it was our anniversary.  We told him it was the day Mommy and Daddy got married.  In true RJ fashion, he was totally excited as if he understood and then exclaimed that he got married too!!  We followed church with brunch at Mimi’s Cafe and then tidied, cleaned the house before the sitter arrived.  It’s been a while since RJ has spent time with the sitter.  We’ve scheduled our last couple of date nights during Parents’ Night Out at his school.  I was a little nervous about his reaction to staying with the sitter.  He started out like this:


 He did shed some tears as we were leaving.  However, before we made it to the restaurant, his sitter sent me this text message.


We decided to try Larkins on the River.


We’d heard great things about the restaurant.  However,  in the 7 years we’ve lived here, this was our first time dining there.  Everything we heard was true!  The food and service were awesome.  The she crab soup was the best we’ve had ,bar none!  It was a great night. We laughed, talked and reflected on the past 6 years.  *Talk of RJ only took up 5% of the evening!*


Here we are… one home, one child and two dogs later…and still

6 yrs later

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

      Thanks, Kita!
      Our sitter got married a few months ago. She told we have a year left before she and her husband plan to grow their family and she stops sitting.

      Thanks. I had to make a conscience effort. It’s easy for us to spend the entire time talking about the baby.

      Josie, thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog. Happy Anniversary to you! I thought I was the only one who chose to brave the dead of winter and get hitched in January. *Also, I checked out your blog. The before and after picture are phenomenal! You look great. I still have a baby pooch and weight to lose. I’ve taken before pics, but vowed not to post until I put a better looking after pic next to it.
