Celebrating 10 yrs in Jamaica!

10 YEARS!!  Wow!  I can't believe how quickly 10 years has flown by.  These past 10 years brought us the blessing of 3 beautiful children, jobs that have met the needs of our family (my changing roles as a mother/teacher, Andy changing jobs several times over the past 10 years), our first house, a new home that we built, friendships gained, times of great faith, struggles, innumerable blessings, a new church home, and so much growth.  We've grown closer together, more in love, bigger in the size of our family, and stronger than I ever could have imagined.  I am blessed to be happily married to the most wonderful husband in the world.  A husband that works hard to support our family, a husband who loves and plays with his children, a patient husband, and a husband who loves God.  God has been so good to us.  Looking forward to the next 50 years together.  I can't wait to see what God has in store for us in the future.

To celebrate our 10-year anniversary, we decided to take a trip to Jamaica for a week without the kids.  Grandpa and Grandma helped watch the kids so we could get away for awhile, and we are so thankful for the opportunity to get refreshed and renewed.  We spent the week relaxing, reading, enjoying delicious food and beverages, and having no schedule or routine.  It was wonderful! :)

Enjoy some pictures from our trip.  Sorry for all of the selfies- sometimes you have no other choice when it's just the 2 of you! :)

Anniversary champagne breakfast.  Funny thing is that we didn't even like champagne.  Haha!

Snorkeling in the room?!?

Love this man.

Enjoying our Asian cuisine

We got to watch the food cooked right in front of us.  The fried rice was amazing- and in the shape of a heart :)

This is how I spent my week

Trying coconut water

I mostly just took a sip for the picture.  I didn't care for it at all.

Beautiful evening
