5 and Holding




Wow. The Man and I have made it five whole years. This time five years ago, I was waking up and preparing to marry a Navy Chief. He had just been pinned chief 4 days ago and was taking some well deserved leave so he and I could tie the knot.




It's been a wild ride, Internets. I've had to learn a whole new world in the past five years. An easy ride it has not been at times. I've had readjust. I've had to move out of my comfort zone. I've had to relocate. Whew. It's a wonder I'm not on serious medication. I'm a Taurus. We bulls don't like change, you know.




It's been worth it. I can' t argue with the new experiences and friends that are in my life now. I'm so glad I took the chance on this guy. If you had told me I would marry some NAVY guy I met on the Internet and that he was going to move me over 300 miles away from my Mama? I would have laughed my entire butt off at you and probably run the other way screaming. Good thing we can't foresee the future. God is good that way.




Best thing about being this man I met over seven years ago?




I still like him.




And he likes me.




It doesn't get any better than this.



This adorable candy bouquet was given to me by my secret pal. It was delivered yesterday and I am just over tickled with it. The sad part? It's all chocolate and that means I will have to eat it. The Boy has discovered it's chocolate and it's a full time job keeping him away from it. At least I'll have pictures of this lovely creation. Thanks, Secret Pal! This has got to be the best bouquet I've ever gotten! (Minus the tulips from Valentine's day. I'm still in love with those purple flowers)
