Hello 14

Happy 14th Wedding Anniversary to My Husband Brad!  

In honor of our 14 years as husband and wife I thought it would be fun to share 14 memorable moments!  Listed in chronological (or close too) order:
  1. Driving cross county from MI to CA, TWICE!  I'm glad you've relaxed the 4 am wake up calls and 12 hour driving schedule.
  2. Shopping for and furnishing our first apartment, still can't believe we fit so many Ikea boxes into that Ford Escort AND that we still have that Ford Escort!
  3. Exploring Yosemite and Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks, and yes, we will totally take the free bus service to trail heads from now on!
  4. Saturday mornings spent at the Farmer's Market picking up strawberries, flowers, and banana bread from Bake Sale Betty
  5. Maui for our Honeymoon and driving the Road to Hana + our romantic dinner luau
  6. The amazing trips we took around CA from exploring Santa Barbara, checking off another Mission off the list, to seeing Hearst Castle & eating pot pie at Linn's and so many more!
  7. Our Easter in Santa Fe while interviewing at Los Alamos.  The dinner at KFC might just be one of our most memorable holiday meals!
  8. Finding two red lines, "No wait, it says to wait ten minutes!"  Ah, yeah that second line isn't going to disappear.
  9. Holding each of our babies for the first time & watching them grow. Hearing the kids call out Mommy or Daddy and light up when they see us makes up for the times they are challenging, don't you think?
  10. Going from watching House Hunters to actually looking for one ourselves, especially since we were coming back "home", something I never thought would happen!
  11. Having our families with us for holiday celebrations again, it's so much nicer to have a full table at Thanksgiving than to just be the two of us like every other day.
  12. Disney World is so much more fun with children, I never would've guessed how into getting all the autographs you would be!  You are one patient Daddy to visit so many princesses!
  13. Showing our kids what going up north means to a Michigander and how a pastie must be eaten anytime you're there!  
  14. And since we just went, I'll end with the summer birthday trips we've started taking each year.  I hope they become a regular thing and that as the kids get older we can go for longer.  Chicago was so fun and even though you did implement the early wake up once again, I will admit that it did get us to the Field Museum early enough to feel like we had a private viewing of the dinosaurs!
Love you very much Brad and can't imagine life without you by my side, now and always ♥
