Tethered Together.

it was mr. weeden's birthday last week, and i enjoy his life. i am thankful for his birth and his re-birth. i am grateful for his hard work. i am so very fortunate that he works on being a better man everyday, and that we can grow together, side by side. i am thankful that he forgives and then forgets. i praise God that when creating jonathan, that he saw me fit to share his life. i am thankful for his genetics because he proves to make some pretty adorable kids. i am thankful and excited to be his mrs. 

tether is a cord or fixture that anchors something movable to a reference point which may be fixed or moving.

i am so very, very, very happy to be tethered to this man.

Happy Birthday.

To Mr.Weeden. my wonderful friend, my husband, partner. we are happy for your life. we are blessed because of it. we need you. we love you. and we really, really like you. we can't wait to shower you with kisses and hug on you constantly. i personally, can't wait to kiss you when you get off the plane. and i absolutely look forward to sharing my bed tomorrow night. sleeping alone is not as much fun;) 

here's a look at what we did for you last year. we've been scheming all week to top it.

While New York...

is getting snowed on, we are doing things like this.

i think i will use this as a sort of "mental" vacation next year when we are snowed in ourselves.

One on One.

one of my favorite things in the entire world is spending one on one time with this girl. my heart expands and expands when i get to give her all my attention. i hope i can reciprocate to her what she does to me. when dune and lars were first born i would take her every friday night and we would do something alone, just the two of us. sometimes we would read books at a cafe and sip hot chocolates, sometimes we'd get donuts and make up stories, sometimes we would eat fajitas and see movies. whatever it was, it helped me maintain a close relationship with the person graycen, and not just my daughter graycen. i thank God for her life and the influence she has over me. i fight for her. i long for her. and moments like watching her master the art of the chop stick is most certainly at the top of my most favorite moments list. 

p.s. when i just read this to her she began to cry. i sure love my sweet little girl.

"A house without books is like a room without windows."
