9 years.


9 years ago today i awoke on the couch of my little 1 bedroom apartment. i looked down at the floor & saw 6 of my most favorite people. i had quite the adventure that day, as my life has been since then. i awoke at 7. all of us taking a shower. electricity went out while one of the girls was in the shower. finished getting showered at my parents house about 5 minutes away. went to westlake village inn where i got my hair & make up done. got dressed (in all white & the pearls my dad gave me). and began my adventure. the day was filled with laughter... my standing on over a fan because it was so hot. tears... my dad charging todd, a memory that i hold so tight. sweet times... my first dance with todd. release... my dance with my dad. energy... all the dancing. good food... catered by my dad's favorite italian restaurant (wait i didn't get any, but i know it WAS good). memories... because that day i got to marry my very best friend with so many people standing beside me. praying for us. caring for us. laughing with us.

it has been an adventure ever since.

so what did i do today? how has life changed? well... i got up at 515 am. went to the gym. work meeting by 7 am. waited for the delivery of my new washer & dryer (isn't that what every woman wants for an anniversary present). continue to work. & that is where i am so far. funny how life can change in 9 years.

Happy Anniversary to you and Todd. Hope you get to spend some special time together. But it must be nice to have a new washer and dryer. Love you guys.

Summer, wow! How are you even old enough to be married nine years?!? (My math must be especially crazy today because it dawns on me that your children are older than mine, so that should have clued me in, right?)

Happy Happy anniversary!!!

What a gorgeous wedding picture...I'm going to have to see your album someday.

Happy Anniversary!

And YES, I can honestly say that I am a hint jealous that you are getting a new washer/dryer!!! Not long ago I thought it was crazy that women would want such things, but seriously, a new st of pots/pans, knives...it's all fabulous!!!

And the gym??? Impressed. That's all I have to say!
