Our 12th Anniversary

Today is our 12th anniversary. I can't believe that twelve years have already passed. It just doesn't seem like it's been that long. On our date, we drove up to Lansing to eat at Carraba's Grill..a restaurant we had never been to before. It was pretty good...and I drew this picture of our table.

As I was drawing the waitress came and asked me if I wanted my meal boxed up, cause I had hardly touched it (because I wanted to draw it), I felt kind of weird for drawing, and told her I was letting it cool. Anyway, after our dinner we went over to Barnes & Noble's to hang out and look at books...but we spent a little too much time in there and by the time we wanted to go, it was already almost 7:30. Luckily, there was a small theatre right there and we saw the only movie that had just started the previews...we bought tickets for Bewitched and got in our seats just in time. It was a cute movie.

During the time we spent together we reminisced about the stupid things we used to do, how things used to be and our wedding night, we talked about how great our kids are and how when we got married, we never imagined that 12 years down the road we would have the three awesome kids that we do. We talked about how we love each other and Sam told me I am a great mom and wife (of which I sometimes have doubts) and that he can't imagine life without me. Even though I know he feels that way about me, it is still so nice to hear it.

Excuse me Julie, I am just looking through your archives - again! This is such a lovely post. The whole post; words and pictures. I cannot tell you how brilliant I think your work is, it all sounds like cliches. I am just a huge fan of yours...so excuse all the posts please. It just means I've found another piece of work that I haven't previously seen!
