9 years....

For those of you who have known me for any time at all you know that my husband has been in my life for quite a long time....9 years to be exact.

Unfortunately I am a week late in posting this, but on May 29th we celebrated our nine years by spending the day together up on Mt. Lemmon here in Tucson.

Meeting him could be the reason that I have such an amazing heart for camp ministry, because it is continually where I find my Lord, as well as where I found the man of my dreams. We did a little reminiscing about our past and found a number of humorous keep sakes. Lets say I was more than a bit obsessed. I pretty much kept everything he ever touched! haha! Glad we finally got married because that would be really awkward to have otherwise :)!!

I still cant believe it has been this long since I so naively flirted with the basketball ref at church camp. Thankfully he was far more tuned into Gods will at that point and was certain from that moment on that we would be married one day. It may have taken us a long time to get to the alter, but it was all in Gods plan and timing.
I am so blessed to have a man who prays over our marriage daily, and continually tells me how blessed he feels to have me as a wife. It doesnt matter if he puts in 80 hours a week at work, he never even has to be asked to take out the trash or help with the dishes. And Lord bless his soul that he never makes me clean the bathroom, because he know just how much I hate to do so. He also never misses an opportunity to serve anyone even if that means moving 3000 lbs. of drinks from one place to another...thats right 3000 lbs.
He is the most intelligent man that I have ever known, and although he gives me a hard time when it comes to my vocabulary, he has never once made me feel inferior to him. He also never seeks out any credit, although he more than deserves to get recognized for all that he does for his family, church, and country.
He pays attention to every word spoken, and never misses a chance to key in on the small details that make me feel so special. Not to mention he always lets me choose what radio station to listen to or what to watch, he takes me on suprise dates to Chilis...which I LOVE!! and the poor man has been working on my painting project for the last 8 months. There is so much more to say about him...but for now...He is far more than I deserve, and more than I could have dreamed.

I have included some pics from our trip to the mountain...I know you may get confused because there is so much green...but we really are still in Tucson!!
