My Sweetheart
This picture was taken about a year and a half ago. It is one of my favorite ones that we have. This is just in our front yard in Oregon. We had a ditch that ran along side the house. And a little area where there were quite a few trees. So, we used to for a photo shoot. In a week and a half we will be celebrating our 9th anniversary. We've gone through so much and grown up and grown closer to each other. When we lived close to family we still relied a lot on them. We would call them for advice and to help answer questions instead of talking to each other. Then we moved almost 600 miles away. My oldest was only 8 months at the time. It was one of the best things that could have happened to us as a couple. We talked more. Resolved things with each other rather that with friends or family. Our little family became more important to us. We still called and visited with our extended family, we still do now! And of course we still ask for advice and help from time to time. But we try to work it out together. We're not a perfect couple. But I think we get better and better each day.

That's a great picture of you and your hubby. I figured that you were young since the kiddos are small but I pictured you as a blonde for some reason.

I have had trouble posting on Kristi's too... I was finally able to get back on awhile ago. Not sure why it does that!
I was a blonde as a kid... and a strawberry blonde with the help of Clariol hair color a few years ago. But, now my hair is it's natural color. For now, I'm happy with it ;)
