Happy Anniversary

Howard and I have been married for 12 years today. I still totally love that guy. I know folks thought I was crazy getting married at 18, but I knew how awesome Howard was and wanted to marry him before anyone else snagged him. Or before he learned how silly I really am. :)

I'd post pictures of then and now but our wedding was pre-digital and my scanner doesn't work. Oh and Howard doesn't like taking pictures so we have none of the two of us.

To celebrate we went to Macaroni Grill after the party yesterday. We ate more yummy food than we should have and enjoyed a complimentary dessert. Then we headed to the always romantic Home Depot to pick out paint. Thanks to Martin Luther King Jr day we usually get a 3 day weekend for our anniversary and use it to do projects around the house. Howard will be painting the front room and working on the crown moulding.

Its not what most women would want for their anniversary but I love it. I love spending time with Howard, even if its just a quick trip to the store. ALONE. I love having a husband who is willing to fix up our house. I love that we agree on how to decorate the house. I love that he respects me, even when I don't deserve it. I love him all the time. I am so blessed...Seriously. :)

I had no idea you were 18 when you got married. I never would have guessed. That cracks me up. You two are a perfect pair.

Can an anniversary get any better than finishing it off at Home Depot? I agree, it doesn't get any more romantic or sexy than that! Happy Anniversary!
