Tenth Year Anniversary

Ten years. A decade. Can I be honest? I am surprised I'm still married. Not only that, I am surprised it is actually working . Growing up, I never saw a future past marrying the man I loved. It's like I could imagine this person but beyond that is a blank. Maybe it's because all the crushes I had up to that point did not reciprocate my feelings. Maybe it is because my own parents separated when I was young so my definition of family is non-traditional. Maybe it is because when Hubs and I briefly broke up in college, my friends told me it wasn't a good idea to get back together. Whatever the reason is, I believe it worked in my advantage because Dean continues to surprise me in the best of ways. He shows me what a Godly marriage is supposed to be. He knows tough times are part of any marriage and taught me to apologize by example. He proves daily that a broken person is still capable and deserving of love. And so I hope from this day on, I will stop projectin

Breakfast Date

Unfortunately, date nights around here are pretty rare. With living far away from family and very limited number of people we trust our children with, family date nights are a lot more common. So every time we visit in Indiana, Hubs and I always squeeze in a date night or two. Thankfully, our family are very understanding of our situation. Plus, I don't think they mind the extra one-on-one time with their grandchildren. With our wedding anniversary being four days away (at the time), Hubs and I took advantage of our weekend visit to Indy to celebrate our upcoming 10th (a decade!). The weekend was jam packed with events and trying to see both sides of our family so we opted to go out for breakfast instead. //Herb Farro: creamy farro, pickled mushrooms, sunny egg We were still exhausted (mostly Hubs) from driving Thursday overnight but we were determined. We aren't sure if we will have a chance to celebrate on the actual day so we rolled out of bed and go
