Today Is My 9th Wedding Anniversary

… and we never had a fight! LOL! Actually, it’s funny I’m using this picture because Bill and I were not speaking when it was taken. We had a falling OUT the day before Halloween. I took up voodoo and I was sticking pins everywhere.

But you fight because you care, right? The passion exists because it has to be right. It has to work and you will do whatever it takes to get through something to come out better on the other side.

We’ve had our ups and downs, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Children are challenging. It’s not as easy as it used to be, but then you look up and open your eyes and actually see your life for what it is and you know you are on the right path.

Life is good. Love makes it better.

What are our plans for today? Not much! I’m praying that he brings me home a BTL from Starbucks – that’s literally what I want for my anniversary.

I got invited to two more press trips in December and Bill is actually going to come to San Diego with me for a weekend. I told him that the trip could be our gift to one another because we have to pay for his plane ticket.

After these trips are done (the other one is taking me to Cincinnati) I am going to take it easy for a while. Unless someone wants to send me to France – then I am ALL OVER IT!! LOL.
