Viva Las Vegas

Justin turned 31 last month. You may recall his birthday party last year, as it was quite eventful. Although we opted for a little less excitement this year, we still wanted to celebrate in a big way. We knew we'd need a little mini getaway mid-winter, and Justin's birthday was the perfect excuse to plan a little trip.

We spent a few days in Las Vegas last month and had the best time. Truly. It was fun to just jet off in the middle of the week with my new husband and celebrate his birthday. And our six month anniversary. And Valentine's Day. But mainly him. Anyway, we did it up right. We saw a show, ordered room service, gambled a little bit, ate a lot of nice meals and just took in the fun sights. That sweet husband of mine also surprised me with a morning at the spa on Valentine's Day. Total bliss. Viva Las Vegas!

Six Months

It's been six months since we became husband and wife. Six of the most rewarding, challenging, gratifying and sweet months of my life. Thankful for this man who loves me for me. Who still pursues me. Who continues to surprise me in the best ways. Who still gives me butterflies. I can't wait for the next six months and the millions after.

"Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up. Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken."

Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
