Love & Marriage

Happy Anniversary!

Kit and I have now been married 7 years. It is funny how long it seems and yet just a moment ago. We celebrated on Monday by going out to dinner, ice cream and window shopping. Our sweet friends watched Jos and Gav so Kit, Gunner and I could go out. We had SO much fun. It is crazy how easy it is to go out with one child after you've been battling 3! My sweet hubby got me the best gift!
I know, it doesn't seem romantic to most of you, but it was so fabulously sweet for me! You see, much to the disappointment of my romantic husband, I LOVE practical gifts...things I can use that make my life easier make me swoon! Seriously-if it helps my life, it makes me happy. I guess the most romantic thing about this gift to me is that after 7 years, Kit knows how to give me the BEST gifts! I don't have to even ask for them, his romantic mind figures out what I would love and would help me out. For example, for Christmas he bought me a gift certificate to go get my hair done, for my birthday he bought me a little carpet-upholstery cleaner and now he bought me the Tom Tom. He is so sweet! I truly love him. Despite the ups and downs, I am glad we got married and I'm glad he feels the same!

Kit needs to teach Coby. I love practical gifts too and my hubby just refuses to listen! He is a hopeless romantic who married a hopeless practical! We should read that Love Language book, I guess!

I can't believe you've been married for 7 years! Wow!!! Congrats and this makes me remember surprising you at your reception - that was a long drive but well worth every second of you screaming and your family wondering what in the world had just happened.

Happy Anniversary! It's really sweet that Kit knows just what to get on his own. That doesn't really happen on my end. Mike likes to be told.

Aw, you guys are so cute! I love your hair - so sleek and stylish! I always tell Brian not to get me electronics, but after using my dad's GPS thingy, I might have to make an exception. ;)

P.S. I saw your dad and Mack this weekend as they were passing through town on the Youth Conference trip.

Do you remember on one of my posts that I said straight, dark brown hair is my envy!! Yes, both you and Sydnee have it and I don't! :( You look great!
