10 Years already?

Ten years ago Charlie and I got married in a little city courthouse by a cute little old man who was the city judge. Although we didn't plan for much it turned out very special and very personal and I still remember the sparkles in our eyes when we said our vows. My mom and dad were there, Michael and Jake and a few of my coworkers. We didn't have a lot of money at the time and wasn't going to go into debt to begin our new lives. I picked my ring from Walmart and still love it today and we wouldn't change anything in the world.

We have been through a lot together and today are celebrating with a trip away 4 hours from home in Galena, Illinois. We have enjoyed getting to know each other all over again this week finding new favorite things we both enjoy such as eating Sushi and fire fly catching.

10 years have gone by and we are planning on many more!

Summer time visit

Mom, Monica, and Lacey drove out for a week visit and we had a wonderful time together. We spent time together making memories at Bay Beach, Door County, and Lake Michigan. We had a barbeque for the 4th, key lime pie, and fireworks and the weather was just perfect the whole week they were here. I think my favorite memory is sitting by the beach at the lake and then having a picnic. I feel bad I didn't get pictures of my own so I will have to have Monica send me hers when she gets home and share them later.
