I confess...

I bet y'all are tired of seeing our wedding photos, aren't you? Don't worry. I'm done sharing for now, but I did have a fabulous time going through them again. And I came to this realization.


I confess...

I  never did put together a wedding album...which I think is something that I need to fix this year. That will make looking back through our photos when I'd like to a little more accessible.

I confess...

The Mister and I had a fantastic dinner last night...and since I was all dressed up, I made him snap a couple photos.

I confess...

All I asked for our anniversary was flowers, and I'd say he did well.


I confess...

I want to wish a very big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos. I know she's at Comic Con today, so I'm sure she's have a fabulous day.

Anniversary Week: Love

Love


recognizes no barriers.
it jumps hurdles,
leaps fences,
penetrates walls
to arrive at its destination


full of hope.
                -Maya Angelou


Happy Anniversary to my Mister. I can't believe that it's been four years since this sweet day. Here's to forty more.

Anniversary week: Some days...

I work for myself, and I do sales for a living. So I recognize that some days...no, some weeks, some months are just crazy. And I have to take care of things and get the job done, and that doesn't always leave a lot left over for me time.

That was March.

But this is April.

In the leadership class that I'm taking, we had to create a set of guiding principles. The rules we're going to live by and run our businesses with that we will not compromise on. This was one of my principles:

I will recognize that taking care of my family and business means first taking care of myself.

And I've been striving to do that this month. It started on the first day of the month. I booked a massage to help let go of the stress of March. I've joined some fitness challenges and (albeit slowly) started back to a running program.


Today I was in need of a little pampering. So I sneaked out of work about an hour early to come home and draw a bubble bath. Those thirty minutes of soaking in the tub with a hot cup of tea and a magazine while I could hear the rain outside the open window were just what the doctor ordered.

Oh, and I'm still loving sharing some wedding photos for our anniversary week. Here's today's favorite:

Anniversary Week: Everything Has Changed [& Musical Monday]

This Taylor Swift song is all about new beginnings to me, and it reminds me a little of when the Mister and I first started dating. And since this week is our anniversary week, I'm going to share a story.

We initially met at a sandwich shop where I was working a second part-time job the year after I graduated college. He worked around the corner and would come in for lunch, but I hadn't really taken any notice of him.

When the Mister first asked me out, I was looking for a relationship at all. To be perfectly honest, I wasn't very pleasant to him on our first date at all. Let's chalk it up to having dated a series of jerks just before meeting him and a serious heartbreak in college, but I'm surprised that he asked me out a second time.

My roommate kept asking me after the date if I was going to go out with him again (she recognized what a good guy he was), but I kept saying I wasn't sure I was interested. I didn't even know if I thought he was cute.

Anyway, while we were out on that first date, he mentioned a Miles Davis album that I said I have never heard of. I came into work a week or so later, and the owner said that the Mister had dropped a cd off for me; it was a copy of that album.

I gave it a good listen but decided that the album wasn't really for me and decided the next week to stop in at his work and give the cd back. By that time, the Mister had called and asked me out a few more times, but I had excuses....mostly work as to why I couldn't go out with this guy I wasn't even sure I was interested in.

That afternoon everything changed. I walked into his store, and he was standing behind the counter with a coffee in his hand. There was a beam of sunlight that was coming in the front window, and he was standing right in the middle of it, and the sunlight made his eyes shine. I had never see such pretty, sparkling blue eyes, the whole situation just took my breath away.

I couldn't even tell you what we said to each other. I just remember almost floating along the sidewalk back to my car. My stomach was completely aflutter, and I just knew that this man was going to be very important in my life.

Thank goodness he called me at work to ask me out again that week...and that time, I had the sense to accept.
