I'm Still Here

Well, in my unexplained absence since our anniversary you probably thought we just floated away on clouds of blissful happiness...

What? You didn't actually think that?

Right. Obviously we did not. But we did have a nice anniversary in which we didn't really do anything special per se, except go out sans children (Thanks to good friends. They were recovering from the stomach plague of death and still willingly watched our girls. That's going above and beyond!), eating a meal neither of us actually enjoyed all that much, walking around a local mall but not buying or even wanting to buy anything, and finishing up at our favorite coffee shop where I enjoyed the best frothy coffee concoction I've ever had. Seriously. Even Prince Charming, whose usual taste in coffee is much simpler, stole shared several long swigs of this drink. If it were possibly to float away in clouds of whipped topping, I would have done it then.

So, as you see, it was a wonderful evening. It far surpassed our honeymoon - three days when our marriage almost died before it even started. I'm not kidding. I'd say I'd tell you all about it but I've spent nine years suppressing those memories - and several of our anniversaries.

The most exciting thing we did this year is dream about next year. We are planning to go overseas, specifically Great Britain, but we haven't narrowed it down more than that, yet. So if you're a great world traveler feel free to give us your favorite stops and hints for going abroad. (Are you reading this, Tarah?)

In the meantime life goes on. We're over -thankfully - the Great Stomach Plague of '08, we've spent time with both sets of my grandparents in the past 2 days, Polly has finished her first formal year of school, Tigger seems to be coming out of the worst of the toddler years (finally!), and Sweet Pea is getting into everything (She climbs! Neither of my other girls climbed!). Stay tuned...

Craig and I went to England for our honeymoon, and I due believe there were a few moments when our marriage almost ended too :-), but overall it was great. I loved Bath and considering our shared love of Jane Austen, I think you would too. There is more information about our trip in our April '07 archives if your interested. (I tried to link to it but it wasn't working)
