Celebrating my 15th Wedding Anniversary!

15 years ago, Donnie and I "tied the knot"

It was a very hot July afternoon
(what was I thinking)

It was about a year after Justin (our oldest) was born...
(we didn't want to be married just because I was pregnant)

our family and friends braved the heat and joined us at our simple ceremony

Even though it was about 100*...
we still enjoyed our time :)

15 years later, my husband never ceases to surprise me

No.... I didn't get 
a new car
a new house
nor a bigger diamond
that would have been nice too...maybe next year...ha ha :)

My darling honey blind folded me and took me out for an ice-cream
yep...still blind folded

I stayed in the van...I don't like stuff like this....
you should have seen me.
I played along with him though
I didn't know where he was taking me

After I felt like I just got off space mountain,

trying to figure out where on God's green earth we were headed to....

I actually guessed...
The duck pond

The duck pond is rather special.

This is the place where he and I would walk for hours 
after having our ice-cream....well actually it was TCBY frozen yogurt
(it was closed down so the gas station ice-cream did the trick)

This is the place where we would
talk about our future and our children we would someday have

I actually had my own plans to surprise him
He beat me to it...

And since it was our "Crystal" anniversary 
(15 years is the crystal anniversary)

He couldn't afford to buy me crystal
so.....Krystal burgers did the job...

I will always remember this day :)

This all happened on July 1st so I am way behind on playing catch up with my blogging. 

In a few days I will share how we spent out 4th of July....

Here is a sneak peek


A belated Happy Anniversary to you two love-birds! You barely look a day older than when you "tied the knot!" I'm so happy you had such a memorable day!

with love and hugs,

Awwe, how beautiful! :D And the music added just the perfect touch.

Last night dh and I celebrated our 9 years wedding anniversary but we didn't have much money. He came home from work with a bouquet of red roses and a card. I was waiting for him ready to gift him with a Bellydance. ;)

Thank you for your comment at my blog. Love, Rosemi

How fun for you. And what young "babies" you both must be. We are working on 29 years this year. Yikes, I must be old.

Ahhh, so sweet! I loved this story! We just had our "crystal" anniversary too.

Thanksgiving at home: First time in 18 years

Let's just say that we didn't plan to spend Thanksgiving at home this year. I think the last time we celebrated in our own home was back when Moriah was a baby.  Yeah...that's about 18 years ago or so.  Let me tell you....W e absolutely loved it! Here's a little run down on how our plans were miscommunicated. You see...Donnie and I didn't communicate our Thanksgiving plans very well this year.  He had forgotten that we had spent Thanksgiving with his side of the family last year so that meant it was time to drive up to Jacksonville and spend time with my side of the family.  With not much talk of our T hanksgiving plans, I hear from the kids that he t old brother or dad not sure who that we would be heading down to see them Thanksgiving.    This conversation happened just a few weeks before Thanksgiving.  Kids: Hey where are we going for Thanksgiving this year? Me: Ummm....I think it's Jax.   One of the kids:  I thi

Stop the Rush

Since returning to blogging, I'm finding some drafts lost in the archives of this ole' blog.  It's interesting to read and think about the day, time, year....when I wrote this specific post. What was I feeling? What was I thinking? This specific post was drafted on March of 2016...Ana was around 7 years old. That was almost 5 years ago! This sweet little girl turned 12 last week.      As I read through the post, I remember that feeling of "rushing", a lot of it was in my mind but I also was to school, boys doing some sort of sport, Ana was taking dance, helping kids with homework, no need to go on.  You get my point.  This was 5 years ago!  This was a year before we left our town Gainesville, Florida to explore the United States and Mexico.  A lot has changed since then and looking forward to catching you all up on everything. So here we go... Most of the time I find myself barely living in the moment.  That's if I don't purposely try to liv
