11years ago...

We did this...



no not today but on the 5th. I would of posted then but we were busy doing this...




No not fighting with each other but we were at the Renaissance Fair. Then I went back and forth with myself about even posting it. I mean what is 11 yrs. I can't believe it has been 11 yrs. We've been through a ton and I am sure there will be plenty of more to keep us occupied for the next 11 yrs.

I read somewhere recently about loosing who you are when you have a difficult home (growing up)life. It really touched me because it is very true. Growing up I wasn't able to learn who Holly was. It was constantly overshadowed by family drama and my mother's issues (wish isn't for this post). I came to realize that through my husbands love I have found Holly. Now at 31 there is a person here who exists. Has thoughts and dreams and frankly who matters. I now know what is important to me and what I need to do to get it. Chef helped me become the person I am today and without him I doubt I would of come as far as I have.

This weekend we get to go on our first trip in 9 yrs as a couple. The kids are going to spend time with their Honorary Grandparents. I am so excited. I made reservations last night and we sort of have a plan. It's going to be interesting for sure. We've only had one other time where we've had hours during the day alone without kids. I am sure we'll constantly be telling each other that it is weird. LOL

Happy Late Anniversary! I'm glad you get to go away, but it sucks you won't be around for my drugged up weekend. I'm going to be a riot! (Although, they aren't doing my wisdom teeth this time, so we'll have another "fun" time to plan!!!)

I'm glad you have Chef. You guys are a great fit.

Mwaaaaaa!

Thanks for the comment! Happy anniversary and such! All of the Ren faires around here are full of weirdos. And I don't mean the typical ren-weirdos, I mean the kind of weirdos that even make the ren-weirdos take a step or two back.

This is why we can't have nice things.

Happy Anniversary, dude. I feel the same way about The Daver.

That is amazing. I'm so jealous! Beautiful wedding picture. Where are these fairs everyone on the internet is talking about? I bet it's fun.
