How We Spent Our 11th Anniversary


Getting up early
Sleeping in
Fearless Flying
Stitches in the chin

Family visits
Looking nice
Annoying waiters
Mojito ice

Indecision
Jason Bateman
Grocery shopping
Milk and bacon

Pukey stomach
Sleepless night
Crazy kids
Feels just right



I never knew, 11 years ago, how much life would change. I never knew how good life could be. I never knew that sleeping in would be a better gift than a fancy bauble.

I never knew I'd have to go back two years to find a decent picture of the two of us.

Happy Anniversary, CMB. Thanks for being so cute and maintenancy.

  28. Nawww, Happy anniversary to you both!!!

    I'm with Becky, you really need to have more photos taken together. I'm sure the kids wouldn't mind practising their camera skills by taking photos of you and CMB.

    I'm so totally with you on the sleeping in bit. That's all I ever ask for on mothers day!
