this is a picture that jeff and i had taken just over 10 years ago to go out in our wedding announcements. he had braces and hair (well kinda hair, i made him shave it shortly after this because it was more like a comb over) i had no boobs, skinny arms and the neck of a giraffe.

jeff reminded me this morning that 10 years ago today we got lost on the way to the LA temple in the middle of el nino. (spanish for...the nino. hahaha!) who gets lost on the way to their own wedding? and who gets lost going someplace they've been a million times? apparently us.
i woke up this morning and this was on the bed.

it says:

when we first met i was no "slim jim" and our love was "good & plenty". as the years went on some "hot'n spicy" foods gave our bums the "red hots" and donut pillows soon became our "life savers" we've taken 1,000 of "pictures" of our beautiful family and one more on the way. "actII" of our marriage is upon us with good times ahead. i've not always treated you like a "princess" but know that you are. happy "10th" love your boy, jeff

jeff gave me one of these when we first started dating and we just threw it out when we moved here a year and a half ago. he's a sweet and thoughtful guy.

when i came out to thank him he probably didn't realize that i had tears in my eyes. i didn't get him anything or even think of getting him anything. i felt horrible! i have been in my own selfish world with this sickness and just haven't gotten out to do anything or get anything. we won't be going out either since tatum has what i've had over the last two weeks and woke up this morning with practically no voice and our sweet jenna has a bad case of strep. i think we just need to burn this place down.

happy anniversary my sweet jeff! this has been the LONGEST 10 years of my life. and i'm not kidding! i wouldn't have it any other way. :)

i love you!

That is very sweet, he always seems so thoughful! I wish everyone at your house wasn't so sick, and to top it all off now you have to take care of them and you feel crapy. Motherhood, it's about surviving! Kristin

Very sweet. And you are so funny! You always make me laugh. Adam always says "can't you believe how fast the last eight years have gone?" And I say "yeah, fast..." but in my head I'm thinking, "And sometimes SLOOOOWWWW!" But like you, I wouldn't have it any other way!

Happy Anniversary! Ten is a big one and very exciting and special. I think it is really funny that you got lost on your way to the temple. Danny and I were late for the luncheon after because we couldn't wait to eat and got lost in L.A. looking for a McDonalds. You should have seen the ladies face when we pulled forward I was in my wedding dress. Anyway, fun to reminisce.
