Thank you, thank you, thank you for your responses to last week’s posts. I loved reading the comments and emails and was so touched by you sharing pieces of your life and thoughts with me. Thank you! You are all awesome!
Andrew and I spent our 9th anniversary well. The night before, I snuck around the house after Andrew had already gone upstairs and hid 9 little gifts (mostly inside jokes) along with clues leading to the next gift. It was a lot of fun to do and even more fun the next morning hearing him (he wakes up at 4:30 every morning, that crazy guy!) quietly tiptoeing around the house finding the gifts. That night, he took me out to dinner at Cielo at the Four Seasons in downtown St. Louis. I requested fancy, and man was it fancy! Plus, the view of the city was gorgeous. So romantic!
The food was amazing. A real treat. We capped the night off by binge watching The Office on Netflix, ha ha! But really, it took us back to the days before kids so we reminisced in such a sweet way.
… not to be overshadowed by this ham, who now jumps in front of the camera whenever he gets the chance.
Saturday morning we rewarded Emil’s good behavior with a new babysitter (yes, we had to reward good babysitter behavior… obviously a funny story behind that one) with a trip to the fire station! He was completely star struck. Now he really has the firefighter bug!
It was a beautiful, special weekend, and made me so look forward to more beautiful warm days. This summer is going to be amazing!
