6 years of marriage!

Its been 6 years since we said our "I do's". Sometimes it seems like forever ago. Its taken a long time to get where we are, and other times it seems like the time has flown by. Where has it gone?! Hmmm I think the kids took up some of the time =)






Gabe....








Leah...











Chloe....





I'm so thankful for Joe and the life we have together. The commitment we made before God to each other is awesome. To love.... in good and bad, sickness and in health, for richer or poorer...(I don't ever think we'll be richer)... I don't think most people in the world today take those words seriously. It saddens me to see all the broken families. But on the other hand it gives me an extra bounce to my step to know that we will NEVER be one of those broken families. We took our vows seriously, and look to God when things get tough(and even when their not). We know that the D word is NOT and option. We have faced some problems and have gotten through them. Marriage isn't easy, and it shouldn't be. You have to work hard at it to keep it strong. I'm looking forward to working at our marriage for another 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36..... you get the point.... years!

Joe thanks for loving me and helping this marriage work!
















My sweet husband made dinner reservations at a restaurant... as a surprise to me. I was blown away when we pulled up to The Melting Pot.

















It was great! We went all out and got the full 4 course "big night out" meal. Silly me forgot to ask someone to take out picture together... oops!
















Cheese fondue(we had the spinach and artichoke version, there were quite a few options to choose from). Our waitress added all the ingredients right at out table, very cool to watch! Dippings included, a variety of breads, chips, carrots, cauliflower,celery and granny smith apples.
















A salad(forgot to take a pic, bad bad blogger) Joe had a portabella mushroom salad and i had the California salad(tomatoes walnuts and gorgonzola, with a raspberry vinaigrette).





















The Main course: a wide selection of meets, veggies and some ravioli, cooked in a Coq au Vin(red wine, broth and yummy seasonings)



















See the ceramic stove... right in the middle of the table, too cool!


And the best part... the chocolate fondue!!! we picked the turtle, chocolate, carmel and pecans. Dippings included strawberries, brownies, cheesecake, marshmallows, rice crispy bars, bananas and pound cake. MMMMMM soooo goood!!!!


























Oh and our waitress lit out chocolate on fire!!! I felt silly braking out the camera while she was right there, but hey, flaming chocolate! Not the greatest pic i know.... i was under a time crunch!






So that was our night, lovely and wonderful! Thank you Joe! I Love you!
