10 years

Steve and I celebrated our 10th anniversary on June 10th. My sister, Erin, was so gracious to keep the girls so we could slip off to the beach for the weekend. We had not gone on an "overnight" anniversary trip since our 5th. Budgetwise we didn't need to take a big trip (and probably didn't "need" to even go to the beach), but how many times do you celebrate your 10th anniversary?:) We found an inexpensive studio condo in Seacrest for 2 nights and we were off. (and yes, kkd, if you are reading this, I did do the planning:)

I have such a huge crush on this boy

A friend told us about
Caliza Restaurant
in Alys Beach so we made reservations to have dinner there. Dining is outside by a beautiful pool...

Steve "relaxing" as we waited on dinner...

And what a fun surprise to walk up and see Darby and her sister, Erika, who were celebrating their 30th birthdays with their husbands and friends.

We just happened to be seated right beside them. She has much prettier pictures of Caliza here.

And the biggest surprise of the evening came when our waitress flagged us down as we were leaving. She informed us that a "friend of the family" had called ahead and taken care of our dinner! I teared up at the thoughtfulness of this person. What a blessing! It was an incredible weekend with an incredible man and I look forward to many many more decades together!

What a great anniversary trip! We have our 15th coming up next Thursday. I want to do something special, but it's kind of hard with school starting. We are thinking of getting tickets to the George Strait/Reba concert in September and making that our anniversary trip.

So fun, I want to go back there right now... and have someone pick up the bill! :) Happy 10th Anniversary!!!
