This past week Matt and I celebrated our 10 year anniversary....We've spent the week thinking about all the wonderful, horrible, weird and wonderful things that have happened over the last 10 years. Here's a few things we've learned.

1. Life is never what we expect it to be, and that's okay.

2. Love can withstand the craziest of storms.

3. Children freaking change everything!

4. We're never quite prepared for the next phase.

5. Contentment is not in our vocabulary.

6. Friends will come and go but we have each other and that's all we really need.

and most important.

7. We love each other and always will.

We also spent a good part of the last week living it up. Celebrations started Wednesday evening with a yummy dinner, Sprinkles cupcakes and then hours spent sipping wine at a wonderful wine bar (Vino100) and talking about what the next 10 years might bring and what we'd like the next 10 years to bring. Then Friday my parents cooked dinner for us (really sweet) and Matt surprised us with Sprinkles cupcakes and we had cupcakes & champagne for dessert. Then to cap it all off, Saturday Matt's mom kindly took Dealey off our hands and we spent and evening in Ft. Worth eating amazing Italian food, drinking wine & cocktails and laughing our butts off while watching one of our favorite comedy troops Four Day Weekend. But really the sweetest part of the whole week was Matt's surprise of a night at the Worthington in Downtown Ft. Worth. What made it so special? It's where we spent our wedding night 10 years ago. It was an amazing week spent with an amazing man, my hero, my love, my Matt.

Here's a few pics, us in the hotel room before we went out & me getting a little goofy after a few glasses of wine and cocktails at the comedy club :o)
