“The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy” -Martin Luther King
I married the man of my dreams about two and a half months ago, and I tell him every day how happy I am that he found me! Every morning I wake up snuggled up to him, I get to hear all of his exciting stories, great ideas, and plans for the future…. and I plan on doing that for the next 70 years. I couldn’t have been given a more precious man, and I’m grateful for every day we have together!
It was Tyler’s birthday this weekend and we had the most amazing weekend of our life 🙂 When I asked him what he wanted to do… like drive up to DC and wander around, go camping or hiking, he responded, “I want to go ‘antiquing’ (verb: to shop for or collect antiques). So we drove up to the Williamsburg Antique Mall and wandered around for over two hours… which was so much fun! Seeing his face light up and excitment about wandering around this stuff for hours amazed me. If I would have known he loved ‘antiquing’ so much, we would have done it before!
After we were both starving, we got his favorite birthday meal (chicken fried steak. don’t even ask), and spent the early-evening in Williamsburg. FINALLY we went home and decorated and at his amazing PINK cake!
Happy Birthday dear. I love you SO much.
