nine years

Boy, has it been a busy week! And it's just going to get busier! I had a few minutes to write a post (probably my only one for several days), so here goes!

We are leaving tomorrow for a family getaway in the woods! Clint and I's ninth wedding anniversary is on the 23rd and then Benjamin's 6th birthday is the next day! So we are in a for a week of celebrating!! One of Clint's co-worker's has offered us the use of her family cabin in the mountains for a few days. We love it there (we've been a few times before). Her husband built the cabin, using all reclaimed materials, such as doors from 100 year old houses, a beautiful antique clawfoot tub, lots of great antique furniture, iron beds... the list goes on and on! It's right up our alley...

I am looking forward to just being together, our own little family of six. The kiddos are also super excited to have their mommy and daddy's undivided attention for several days as well. (there's no phone service, no tv, and no internet) - just good old fashioned family time by the fire. Heavenly!!

Here's a few pictures from my wedding day nine years ago. I can't believe it's been that long. What a ride we've had, too! Lots of change and chances to grow in our relationship with eachother and with the Lord. It's been quite a journey. Clint, I love you and am proud to be your wife!

Have a very blessed week!
