I remember........

Loving someone for 27 years is amazing in itself ! The day we said "I do" my grandparents were married 60 years. Lord willing we will celebrate our 60 year mark one day! Marriage isn't easy and it takes a lot of work. A lot of effort! We have walked many difficult roads these past 27 years. But we have walked some very great ones too! Each day brings new and exciting adventures...if you know Kelley you will understand what I am saying. Throw 9 other lives in there and my day can be exhaustingly exciting! I will never regret this life I have been given. I love the man whom I share this journey and my life with!

Our life together for 27 years.........
I remember falling for you and you for me. Even though some said it wouldn't still chose to see.
You chose to see what God had planned. You promised to cherish and always hold my hand!
I remember the bee and that first kiss. I remember asking God "Are you sure about this?"
 I remember all the hard times and how we got through. I remember the good times and laughing with you.
I remember all the job moved up so quick!. Each one brought us a new home and a blue line on the pregnancy stick.
9 little lives have brought us joy and pride. Each day they bring chaos with a little insanity on the side.
Look at all the memories...some good and some bad.We have done life together...that makes me so very glad.
I'll never regret saying "I do" to you that day. I'm looking forward to the future and planning our next getaway!
Tomorrow we plan to celebrate 27 years. Spending time alone with you has been music to my ears!
                                                               I love you!

 Happy Anniversary my love!
27 years of life, love and adventure....Kelley Holcombe you are the greatest gift I have ever been given! Walking this journey of life with you has made me who I am....and you still love me anyway!  As we step into the next 27 years....I pray they are even more adventurous than the last.With you I can love, laugh and live life to the fullest as we journey this life God had planned. I love you and the life we have built together!

Time alone in a big city...Holy Batman!

Well I'm the big city. Monday came way too early. I was up at 4:30 am after sleeping only a couple of hours. I guess I was excited about my big trip to the city....and spending time with my hubby. It was all I could do to keep my eyes open all day. We arrived early enough to grab some lunch and walk a couple of miles around the city before Kelley had his late afternoon meetings. These 100 degree temps added to my fatigue or maybe it's the lack of exercise I have let consume my body. I have no more excuses....time to get this old lady up and motivated!

Today I have had so much alone time and it's only 2 pm. Not sure if I like this or not. However, I know it's good and much needed. But how does a mom of many learn to sit still and relax? Other than throwing them at my little ones, those two words haven't been in my vocabulary in a very long while. Today I took off on my own and ventured into the city. Mostly because I needed nourishment. I found this great little cafe...thistle while you work.  I felt like such a country girl walking the streets of this big city. Maybe by the time we fly home, I'll have tried many more sweet little resturants and walked many more miles in this heat. Look out Rachael Ray...I could bring back your $40 a day show!

Our hotel is set back across the lake from the city next to the Bat bridge. It's a bridge where millions of bats emerge from under the bridge at dusk to blanket the night sky. Bat Bridge Here you can get a glimpse of what I'm talking about. I knew I should have brought my cape!

It's time to go lounge by the pool ! Maybe I'll just take a nap.... Oh the life of a mom of many! I guess I should be careful...I wouldn't want to get too use to this....would I?!
