Happy Anniversary to Me!

So, my dear sweet husband is even more dear and sweet than originally thought ...

Today, September 30th is our 8th Anniversary and to celebrate this occasion, Matt planned a surprise weekend getaway for us this past weekend! He arranged childcare and everything! After dropping the bigger boys off at their respective homes for the weekend (Jaxon stayed with the Duke's, Jones stayed with Grammy and Papa and Matheson got to tag along - he's still and quiet, plus he's sorta attached at times...), Matt and I hit the road to Wilmington! We were able to have an actual conversation on the drive without interruptions, ate dinner without cleaning up messes and sharing my food with anyone, turned the tv on in the hotel room to a channel that wasn't NOGGIN, went in lots of shops without anyone begging for anything, and without having to go in a single toy store, took a shower without peeking out the curtain one time to make sure everything was allright, and slept beside my wonderful husband all night long without anyone crawling in the bed between us! Oh, the simple things ...

Thanks for a wonderful weekend, Matty! I love you and can't wait to see what the next 8 years of wedded bliss brings our way!
