8 Years


Happy 8 year anniversary!! I often wonder how I got so lucky. I have the greatest husband that there ever was. He is so patient and kind and loving to me. We have had a lot to deal with since day one and I am so grateful that he has been there for me every step of the way. We have been kind of bummed the past couple of days. About a month ago Rob had a really big order of about 200 pictures that he had to have shipped to a clients house in California. He stayed up late and worked really hard to get it all done. He shipped the pictures 3 weeks ago and they arrived safe and they looked great. The pictures have been hanging on the wall so beautifully arranged. Mind ye this is California so the pictures are stuck to the wall with something called earthquake putty. We hope the pictures come down easily. Rob got a call Friday night saying that some of the pictures are starting to ripple and that he needs to come right away with all his equipment and fix the pictures. All 200 pictures need to be taken apart and put back together and it all has to be done before this Wednesday. I have never seen my husband be so overwhelmed. He rented a cargo van and loaded up all his stuff and arrived safely in California last night. He will be working very hard all day today and tomorrow and will hopefully be home to us by Tuesday. He was able to take his brother Matt with him which we are very grateful for. Thank you Thank you Amy for letting Matt come. You can have whatever picture you want. Rob was so sad to be missing our anniversary and Mason & Tanner's first day of school:( I'm ok with it. We were just going to go out to dinner last night since our anniversary is on Sunday, but now he says we are going on a cruise because he feels so bad for not being here. CRUISE DINNER CRUISE DINNER. Hmmm which one do I want? No really. We'll see. I would probably rather just fix up the house a little bit, and save the cruise for our 10 year. Anyways Rob did say that he wished he could go over to California to see this house. We hear it is crazy big, and in one of Oprah's neighborhoods. Take lots of pictures. I love you Rob!!!!!!! Thanks for being such a hard worker and for providing for our family. Speaking of anniversaries and picture framing . . . . . . . .

I'm glad Matt and Rob got through it so fast. I know it wasn't the greatest of situations for you and Rob though! But, Matt had a fun time, and at least they got to spend some good quality brotherly time together!
