Just the Two of Us

Since Monday was our anniversary, we decided to run away for the weekend. We went to Salt Lake and stayed in a hotel, walked around Temple Square, ate at yummy restaurants, shopped at Gateway and ate a lot of junk food.
The best part about getting "away from it all" is that it gives us a chance to remember why we like each other. We always LOVE each other. But with 5 crazy kids, sports, jobs, church responsibilites, laundry to fold, toilets to scrub and a million other things going on at any given time, we can sometimes forget what it was that made us connect in the first place.

For example:
He makes me laugh.
He puts up with my moodiness.
He laughs at my jokes.
He's willing to shop with me.
He's smart.
He has good taste.
He thinks of others before himself.
He can talk to just about anyone.
He's an extremely hard worker.
He's a great Dad.
He'll drop whatever he is doing to help someone in need.
He can build just about anything.
He likes to surprise me.
He knows what I like. (Yesterday, he stopped by out of the blue and brought me a Jamba Juice.)
He "gets" me.

While we were at Temple Square we decided to take a photo on the same stairway as we did when we were married.



I think I'll keep him.
