August 17 marked our ninth wedding anniversary! Realizing it was her parent's anniversary that Saturday morning, Eliza briefly disappeared down the hallway. Having planned ahead, she retrieved a picture she found of us from 'back in the day' that she had decorated a few days earlier. Her thoughtfulness touched us both.
It was fun to see my beau out picking flowers from our own backyard for me. They were lovely.
Oh please. Just stop. I know you're coveting our sweet dual tv set-up/entertainment center. We're forever in the "wait until we can afford" what we want mode in terms of furniture.
This past Saturday we called the babysitter and went to see Man of Steel. Forrest loved it. Seriously, he behaved so well. We need to take advantage of that while we can. After the movie we went to dinner. Even with a newborn, date night still felt like date night. Aside from bedtime, I do not crave that personal independence away from my baby. I want him near me all the time. Lucky for us all, Andrew's not the jealous type and is happy to include him!
At dinner, we wondered aloud about what life will look like ten years from now. The conversation bred fear as he said the words, "Eliza will be 17!" And while she's a very good girl, the idea of teenagers worries me to pieces! So, dear blog, if you're still around ten years from now... how are we doing?!?
I love you very much, Andrew. Sharing my life with you is life's best gift.
