things i have learned in the last 730 days

* recycling is important
* the person who said "learn to pick your battles" was not just being quippy.
* well, maybe they were just being quippy, but i think it is good advice.
* i have a harder time picking my battles than a 9 year old little girl.
* staying in nice hotels is fun.
* love really does grow as you share more of life and yourself with another person.
* i hate folding laundry.
* recycling comes every other friday.
* even counselors need counseling sometimes.
* i really do like "Scrubs" (even though it IS silly).
* being commited to church and relationships is priceless - even if everything is broken and you can smell everyone's butts. you just don't give up.
* i want a small, quiet place to simplify and only do what is important.
* this is the only life i get - i want to do the things that i love.
* i am an artist.
* i can't do it all - i love having a partner.
* i have major major issues with trusting people.
* my issues impact other people.
* when i forget when recycling day is, there is a handy dandy calendar taped up in the pantry.
* i only discovered this calendar a few months ago.
* the proper way to paint a room and baseboards.
* the beauty of using Speer Blvd. to get around town.
* flying Frontier is the BEST!
* fall really is the greatest season.
* i am both amazing and broken.
* and somebody loves me in all of it.
* and that is both comforting and humbling.

heading off this afternoon to celebrate for a few days in the mountains!
(the real day is monday!)

Hey! You aren't supposed to post your anniversary post for an anniversary that isn't for a few days on my actual anniversary so that my husband sees your nice sweet post before I even have had a chance to put a thought to my anniversary post--Dang it!!

Happy Anniversary to you...and us!

your wedding day was beautiful, and i pray that each year is better than the one before. and if it's not, that your heart is full of hope for the ones to follow.

Have you missed the part where Cara said she smells everyone's butts? I guess you guys are seeing some of what we talk about in counseling! :)
