Yesterday was mine and Heath's 8 year anniversary! It's hard to believe it's been 8 years! It has gone by quickly. It's so crazy to think how much our lives have changed since that day we said "I do".
We've had our ups and downs. Our good days and bad days. Our smooth paths and rough paths, just like every marraige. But I am blessed that I have a man who still loves and adores me. Yesterday, his goal was to make me feel special and boy did he do a good job.
First, that morning when I walked in my office, I found these on my desk!
A few hours later, I got a text from Heath asking if he could take his bride to lunch. So excited, but little did I know that he was kidnapping me and not taking me back to work. (Thanks bosses!)
We drove to downtown Dallas and ate at a yummy Mexican restaurant named RJ's. We had never been and it was yummy!
After we ate, we walked to my next surprise which was a tour of the 6th Floor Museum (the place where John F. Kennedy was shot from). Heath and I have always thought it would be interesting to go on this tour, but just have never taken the time to go. It definitely was interesting, but it was also a little creepy. It's a very old warehouse that is set up into a museum now, but standing in the spot where they think Lee Harvey Oswald stood when he shot the president was creepy. However, I do highly recommend the movie JFK with Kevin Costner.
I really need to work on my picture taking. With a real camera, I have the one arm take a picture shot perfect. But I obviously have not perfected the angle with my iPhone.
My next surprise was spending time with my sweet Ella. We got her from my parents and took her to see Shrek The Final Chapter. Ella loves Shrek so we had been wanting to take her. It was a blast. This part of the day was the most thoughtful I thought because Heath knew as much as I would love to have some time just the two of us, he knew I would also be missing Ella.
After the movie, we dropped her back off at my parent's house and headed to the Keg for a wonderful dinner!! I had the crab leg dinner. SO YUMMY!
This was a much needed day for us. Honestly, things have been a little stressful lately. We are just going through some trials of life right now and it was such a good reminder that no matter what, I am blessed. As funny as this sounds, I learned a little life lesson from Shrek yesterday. It wasn't until his entire world was taken away in the movie, did he realize what he had. I pray I never get to that point, but it was good reminder to be so thankful for my wonderful family!
