A Fabulous Year!



Sunday marked our 1 year anniversary!! I am so glad that the wedding thing is behind us and we were able to move forward in our lives together. Michael has been an incredible blessing in my life. God gave us to each other at the perfect time and in the right place. So many times people comment to me that he seems like such a great guy. HE IS! I wish the people that know me well, knew him better. I guess that just take some time. Michael has been such strong yet gentle leader in my life. I have learned so much from him in the 2 1/2 years that I've really known him.

So...the fun stuff! Michael sent me a dozen, long-stemmed red roses to school on Friday. These roses were gorgeous! Maybe the best looking flowers I've ever received! Big, bold, and beautiful! It was so fun having the kids see them! We got to spend Friday night just relaxing. We both had been working so hard that week and we both just wanted to veg.

Sunday was our big day. Michael gave me an album with some sweet things written inside and a recent picture of us. It is set up in way that we can put a picture of us in it everytime we celebrate an anniversary. So thoughtful! We went to church and out to eat with everyone. Later, Michael took me to Ruth's Chris Steak House. He knew that I loved their sweet potato casserole and wanted to take me somewhere nice. Now, my momma makes a mean sweet potato casserole and she comes close to Ruth's Chris. Michael, who hates sweet potatoes, even tried to finish off my plate because he liked them so much. You may want to order it for dessert some time. They're that good! We were given a complimentary chocolate dessert, but after the steak and sweet potatoes, I was stuffed! Our waiter, Gianpierre, took many pictures of us, including this one:



Then, Michael took us to the hotel where we went on our wedding night. This place is really cool too. We got a little lost on the way. I guess that's because we didn't have a limo driver this time. Las Colinas is such a nice place and the weather was very cooperative. I even got to swim! (I miss swimming so much!)

Overall, Michael was very romantic this weekend. I love you so much, babe!!

Thanks for the sweet comments!

Shannon, I still feel blessed by your presence at the wedding.

Meredith, I'm glad you found me! You need to set up a blogger. It's a wonderful way to keep up with everyone.

How funny, this is where we stayed on our wedding night too-- Sept 13, 1997. I'm sure you had as much fun as we did (wink, wink)...
