10th anniversary!!!

wow... it is still hard for me to wrap my mind around us being married for 10 years! on june 10th we celebrated our 10 year anniversary. we dont usually get to celebrate on the actual day because it is a busy camp time and we usually have a group booked. daves parents gave us a 24 hour get away with no kids in may to help us celebrate. we stayed at a lovely suit in pigeon forge. to be honest most of what we did was SLEEP! but we both obviously needed it. it was a really nice restful getaway. just wish it could have been longer.

well when our actual anniversary date came around we were able to get a little bit of time just the two of us. we headed to knoxville and enjoyed MELTING POT. one of our all time fav restaurants. bringing a pregnant lady to melting pot is very good idea. :) every bit was bliss, and so was the company :) we had really good conversation and joked how we at least still had things to talk about after 10 years.
here are some other lovely, high quality photos from the iphone.
i borrowed some great heals from a friend. couldnt walk in them, but they sure looked good.

dave picked out these flowers for me and had them waiting on my desk in the morning. they were beautiful. i love having fresh flowers in the house.
he also totally surprised me with this ring to wear with my engagement ring. he had handed it off to the waitress at the melting pot without me knowing so when we were eating dessert she had brought it out to me. it is beautiful but needs a little tweaking to make it work with my ring, so no pics of it on my finger yet. i cant wait to get it. i was not so in to jewelry at the time we got married and i liked things very simple. now as i have "matured" (ha ha) i guess i am liking to show off that diamond a little more :)

i am so blessed. david is an amazing man. he has made me who i am today. i was so young when i got married that i feel like most of my "growing up" has been with him. he has given me so many great blessings including a wonderful family. i love him so much. cant imagine life without him.

Wow! That wrap is beautiful and I cant wait to see it on your finger.

Congratulations on 10 years! It seems like just yesterday we were practicing doing your hair in your kitchen and now we have been married for a decade and have (almost) 8 kids between the two of us!

So glad that you have Dave and that he has you!
