Happy Anniversary to us!

I am a day late with this post, but I still wanted to acknowledge that it was Keith and my 2nd anniversary yesterday!

I was thinking back to two years ago and remembering that beautiful Fall day that we exchanged our vows in front of God and our family & friends. It was one of the best days of my life, if not THE best.

I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband who is loving, kind, supportive, and truly my best friend.

We have been through a lot together in the last two years including moving to a different town, starting new jobs, family illnesses & deaths, and our own personal joys and sorrows. I am very excited to see what the future holds for us as a couple and also as we create our family.

Here's to many, many more years of love, health and happiness! I love you Keith!

Change in plans

Unfortunately, due to the threat of rain and wind in the Shenandoah Valley this weekend, our hot air balloon ride has, once again, been postponed. Who knows when we will be able to do it again - probably not for another year or so. :-(

So, Keith and I are enjoying a quiet, relaxing weekend at home - something we don't do very often. This is actually the second weekend in a row that we have not been away from home, although last weekend we had a visitor and I had to work on Saturday. So, it wasn't really as relaxing as this weekend should turn out to be.

We are currently sitting on our back deck - Keith is reading and I, of course, am on the computer. There is the usual laundry and house cleaning that is calling my name from the inside of the house, but I am just going to try and ignore it for the time being. The weather is beautiful - probably in the high 50s/low 60s - and I am trying to sit still and just enjoy the quiet time. (For those of you who know me really well, you know that I am not one to sit and do nothing for very long. In my opinion, there is always something that needs to be done).

SIDE NOTE: As I am typing this, a female deer just bounded through our back yard. It is not uncommon to see deer in our yard as we live in a neighborhood full of them, but it always nice to see them every now and then (especially when you are not driving and trying to avoid hitting them!)

I am looking forward to LOTS of football today and tomorrow. We will be watching the Cavs take on Wake Forest this afternoon and tomorrow will be the Bills & the Steelers (separate games but both on TV here...yippee!). All in all, this should be a very relaxing and enjoyable weekend with no where to go, no where to be and no one to take care of except for each other.

I hope everyone has a very enjoyable weekend!

Excited and scared

This upcoming weekend, Keith and I are headed to the Shenandoah Valley to celebrate our two-year anniversary. The most exciting part of the weekend (other than just spending time away with each other) will be the hot air balloon ride that we will be taking early on Saturday morning.

I have been super excited to take this balloon ride for a few years now. This is still the same balloon ride that Keith bought me as a Christmas gift in 2005! This is the same balloon ride that we tried to take last year at this time and it got canceled due to bad weather. So, as you can see, I have been waiting and waiting to take this balloon ride. come now that I am actually thinking about how far up we will be, how we will be just hanging by a balloon hundreds of feet in the air....why now am I becoming very scared?! Should I be afraid? Is this a dangerous adventure we are embarking on? It can't be that bad or lots of people wouldn't do it, right?

Oh....maybe this is a bad idea.....
