Hello, hello!  Husband & I just got back from our anniversary vacay in Jamaica!  How in the world has it been seven years already?!?  And I was also thinking about it earlier, this year in July we will have been together for TEN years!

We stayed in an over the water bungalow at the Sandals Royal Caribbean in Montego Bay, and it did not disappoint!  These bungalows are incredible!  And in fact, these are the first of their kind in the entire Caribbean!  We were able to jump off our deck straight into open water to snorkel, there were plenty of great restaurants right on property, so we really didn’t leave at all!  We did go out snorkeling in the reefs which consisted of us getting on a boat, but other than that… we stayed put!  The resort is super close to the airport which made travel time non- existent, when you are going on a trip like this, you want to spend as little time in transport.  Needless to say, Husband & I had a wonderful time!

As for our sweet anniversary, Husband arranged for a candlelight dinner right on our deck in our room.  It was perfect and the food (made right in our bungalow) was amazing!  Husband is seriously one of a kind.  I’m so lucky to be his wife and to have him as the father of our two boys.  He is such a great role model for them, showing them how a husband should take care of their family.  He is so generous, loves to travel anywhere I want, and treats me like a queen!  He doesn’t mind if the house is messy, if the laundry’s not done, if the kids are throwing fits… he is so patient and kind hearted.  I love him so, so much.  He makes my life unbelievably blessed just because he is in it.

Love you, Husband.

Cheers to seven years!


Castle Mountain View

I’m about to blow this blog up with tons of photos from our anniversary trip in Canada (I know… it’s been a hot minute since that trip), so I thought I would tease you guys a little longer with a short clip of the view from the top of Castle Mountain.  Enjoy!

Lake Louise :: Holy moly!  This place was magical!  It was seriously a winter wonderland, something straight out of a disney movie!  Or The Revenant, which was partially filmed in the Rockies… but I will talk about that more in a future post because we actually went hiking in a spot that was in the movie.  For now though, I want to focus on the little slice of heaven from our pics above, Lake Louise.  During the winter everything is covered in beautiful white snow, but I hear (and see from the internet) that during the summer when the ice melts, this lake is the most breathtakingly beautiful blue color, and surrounded by the mountains… oh my!

Driving in on Wednesday night, you really couldn’t see a whole lot.  It was actually quite scary seeing signs warning of Elk crossing, and BEARS!!  The light from the full moon was only highlighting the tips of the mountains which surrounded us on both sides, but that was it, no other light source and really no towns or even gas stations in sight!

We stayed at the Fairmont Chateau (you can see it in the background of one of the pics above) and couldn’t have dreamed of a more wonderful hotel.  Everything was superb, absolute perfection.  I never wanted to leave!  And the view from our room… just look at the first picture on this post.

I can’t wait to show you more from the trip, but with an almost ONE year old getting into everything, it’s going to take me some time, so hang in there and I will post them as soon as I can!

Dear Husband,

Today marks our five year wedding anniversary, and these last five years have been absolutely amazing because they have been spent with you.

The saying “I’m not spoiled, just well taken care of” perfectly depicts my life with you.  Since the day we met, you have taken pristine care of me…  you provide above and beyond what is expected of a husband, and I don’t take this life you give me for granted, not one single second of it.

You are the best partner to have in life.  Smart, trustworthy, level headed, loyal… that’s you, my husband!  Not to mention very handsome :)  Five years and a (very cute) baby later, you are the same person I fell in love with.

Bottom line is, thank God I hooked you in that gross Houston bar back in 2008 (insert winking emoji here).  Sure, I know I bring a lot to the table as well, but you are so wonderful and every now and then you deserve to hear how much of a blessing you are to my life.

I love you, sweetheart.  Happy anniversary!

Love, Wifey

^^ Man oh man, how I love this Man!  ^^

Today marks our four year wedding anniversary, so I thought I would share a few “cutting the cake” photos with my readers.  What a special, sweet day that was…

I look back on the last four years and think to myself, wow!  Look at all that we have accomplished, all the people we have met, all the friends that we have made, all the places we have traveled, all the memories we will keep forever…  and it’s only been four years of marriage!  Of course there are lows (I would never say life is perfect), but when reflecting on our short amount of time as a married couple, I would have to say that we overcome those rough obstacles with grace.  And now, we have a little baby who will be arriving at any moment!  Expanding our family is probably the most exciting experience we will ever have and I cannot wait for this new chapter of life to start!

Husband, you make me the happiest woman in the whole world.  You work so hard and do everything possible to enhance our life together… and I just want you to know, I appreciate you in every way.  I am so proud to be your wife, the mother of your child, and your partner in life.  You are so wonderful!

I love you.  Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart!


Tres Años

Three blissful years.

I swear, it feels like only yesterday we were in the Briscoe Manor chapel with all of our closest family and friends taking our vows.  I love looking back on our amazing day and how much fun everyone had…  We are so, SO blessed in life and in love, and I couldn’t imagine walking this journey with anyone other than you, Husband.  You are the light of my life.  I love you.  Happy Anniversary!

xoxo


Dos Años

If you currently follow my blog, instagram profile, or happen to be my friend on Facebook… you probably already know that Husband surprised me with a weekend getaway for our 2 year anniversary.  But for those who are just tuning in… here’s a little recap! :)

IMG_4085 IMG_4088 IMG_4094

I only had 2 clues:

1. Beach

2. Travel time = 3 hours give or take 1/2 hour

So, living in Florida, that could be ANYWHERE! We filled up the truck and were off and running by noon… we drove, and drove, and drove, but finally… we made it!

Husband did a really good job!  The hotel was wonderful, the room had the most stunning views, every meal was delicious… everything was perfectly planned!  It means so much to me that he put so much effort and love into planning this relaxing weekend for me.  So sweet!

Saturday night we had dinner at The Grill which was excellent.  Husband had a steak while I had Halibut.  It seems I’m eating less and less red meat these days…
