Nineteen Years!

This Wed. June 9th is our anniversary. Wow, nineteen years. Jay and I met in high school. He was a senior and I was a sophomore. Boy did I fall hard for him. I can still remember the dance that I first met him at. He was wearing an old worn out denim jacket, that I later claimed as my own just so I could smell it. Can you believe that!
I still love being with him. We did not celebrate too big this year. We ran away to a local hotel. I was so excited to go. Our little ones have been finding their way in to our room several times during the night. I was anxiously awaiting to be able to sleep with out being disturbed. Plus the room had a KING size bed. Oh, I want a new bed. Our bed has about had it. I'd love to get a king size, but I am afraid that we wouldn't be able to fit anything else into our room. As a matter a fact, we would probably have to just dive in from the door. Yep, the kids got the big rooms, you'd think they'd stay in their own beds.
Dinner at Ruby River was fabulous, well at least mine was. Steak toppers, never heard of it before, I usually don't even use steak sauce. I indulged in a spinach and artichoke cream sauce on a top sirloin, Oh to die for. Plus the jacketed yam with cinnamon butter, aren't you craving some now? No room for dessert.
On to the cine mark. We watched, "Angels and Demons". I had read the "DaVinci Code", but not this one. I am not a big reader. Probably won't read this one now that I've seen the flick. We enjoyed it. Plus I love holding hands at the movies. Oh, did I mention there were no kids with us! Got to LOVE those little nights away!
Baskin Robbins? What I don't think I've been there since high school. I didn't even know there was still one in town. Scoop of Jamocha fudge and one of pistascho almond. Weird, why didn't they use pistaschos? Doesn't really matter, ice cream at 11pm, no kids, king size bed I'll getover it.
Romantic night together, KING size bed!!!!!
Sleep in...... breakfast 10:45 at village inn.
I new it wouldn't last long. Laundry, shopping, movie with family, yard work, and more shopping. I am tired. Mac -n - cheese for the little ones. Shh, don't tell. I had a pint of ice cream for dinner.
Next year the big 20yr, I am going to plan for a cruise, we deserve it.
Jay is a wonderful husband, friend, best friend, and father. He still makes me laugh and smile. Often I still get goose bumps and chills when we kiss. Oh, a feeling that brings me love, security, amongst other things.
I love you Jay!!
