september fourteenth wasn't our anniversary...but we celebrated like it was

Mr and I weren't really able to do much celebrating on our actual anniversary because of school, work, and the Army so we both took Thursday off from work this week and spent the day together. It was much needed, and we had such a wonderful day together. It was nothing extravagant or over the top. But it was us, and I like us :)

I'm Into Something Good by The Bird and the Bee on Grooveshark

We started off the morning at a local coffee shop where two of our best friends work. It's a sweet, intimate little shop with brick walls, local artist's paintings on the walls, little coves with lamps and pillows where we were able to enjoy each other's company and sip on delicious coffee. 

This is one of our best friends that works there, and just so happened to be working when we came in. He sat with us for a bit after his shift ended and we had some good chats :)

and this is what happens when you give boys your camera.....

Mr and I spent the afternoon shopping around town for some new clothes for the upcoming Fall season :) and later that evening he surprised me with a trip up the road into the hills for dinner. Unfortunately, the really awesome restaurant he planned to go to was randomly closed for the night so we decided on the local pizza joint. Voted number one pizza place in our city last year!

The artwork throughout the pizza joint was hilarious and we had a good laugh checking out the walls with frame to frame pictures around the entire place. Like this lady for example...who knows what she's doing? We ate dinner right next to her though :)

See the big fat bellies in the top right corner? Yea we ate by them too.

and then there was the table next to us. Those cross eyes looked at me all through dinner, and I loved every bit of it.

Friends, marriage is hard..but so rewarding. Goodness, I get to sleep next to my best friend every night. I get to curl up on the couch and read my book while he sits next to me making comments about the atomic..nuclear..whatcha-muh-call-it from his biology text book, and I love every second of it. We've been through a lot together and setting aside this day to celebrate our love was everything I'd hoped for. God is so good to us.

Life without my hubby in it wouldn't even make sense to me, and I'm so thankful he's been mine for the past 5 years...2 of which by marriage. I love you bub, you make me the happiest I've ever been and will ever be.
