Today marks 10 years Mr.S and I have been together. It doesn’t seem possible! It does seem like a long time since our first date, but a whole decade ago.
It just seems amazing and unreal to me… ten years only one major fight and it was over a simple misunderstanding in the first year. We have never taken a break or even seriously entertained the thought. I feel so lucky to have found each other. Everyday being able to waje up next to him, its just an amazing treat. I never have any doubts we are perfect for each other. We have shaped and molded each other into wonderful people over the years and have grown together. In many ways we have gained the wisdom of older couples and enjoy the small treasures in life together.
I am not sure what we are doing to celebrate, but we must do something. This is more than twice as ling as either of us have been in a relationship and to have the love and passion just like year three is a major accomplishment and worth celebrating.
I know its been a long time since I have posted, but we had to put our wedding plans on hold due to finances. Now with extra money coming in we have started talking and planning again. The goal is by the end of next year to be married. But until the I will keep you all posted.
May 8th we celebrated our 1 year engagement anniversary. It doesn’t seem like it has been that long, but I suppose the calender never lies.
For celebration we decided to take our first vacation together. Historically our vacations included driving 1,000 miles to visit family at the holidays. I took a couple of days off from work and we took a short little weekend trip to St. Louis. We had tons of fun. We did some of the typical tourist things though we didn’t make it to the Arch. Instead we spent the majority of our time at Forest Park where we went to the Zoo, a couple of museums and the Planetarium. We also made a trip out to the Missouri Botanical Gardens where we had an absolute blast.
The highlight of the trip was the food. We went to a restaurant that served Nepalese food. It was to die for. I have decided I am going to find some recipes online and incorporate them into our dinner recipes. We went to Fitz’s Soda shop where we both fell in love with the soft drinks (neither of us really drink soft drinks anymore). The last meal we had was at Pappy’s Smokehouse it was pretty good, but I still LOVE Jazzy’s in Tampa.
If we can have so much fun on a short three-day trip I can only image how much fun we are going to have for our destination wedding!
