Yesterday was Ryan and my 9th Wedding Anniversary. We celebrated by taking a trip to San Diego for the week. It was the first time I have left my children for an over night stay, so I was nervous about spening the trip without them. However, I focused on my time with my sweet husband, and enjoyed every last second of the trip. Ryan and I were able to take our time at dinner and have an adult conversation the entire time! Usually, we are dealing with the kids...making sure they are fed, bathed, behaved, etc. But this week was so relaxing, and I enjoyed spending that quality time with Ryan. After 9 years of marriage I still get those butterflies in my stomach when we are together! God has given me the best husband I could ask for....I couldn't dream of spending my life with anyone but Ryan. Ryan is such a Godly, caring and compassionate guy....I often wonder what I did to dseserve this wonderful man I call my husband! He always puts my feelings first and bends over backwards to make sure I (and the kids) am taken care. I could go on and on about him! What a wonderful 9 years it has been....I look forward to the next 9 yrs, an the next 9 yrs, and the next 9 yrs, and the next.... Thank you, Lord, for this beautiful gift you have given me!!
