April Fun

Well, I made it to 25! I think I'm getting old, but then I get out in the real world; I'm just a baby. The positive note is I can now rent a car without any penalty fees! Woo Hoo!! I'm going to get right on that. :) It was fun to have lunch with Joe's parents on Saturday and then we went over to my parents yesterday to celebrate. I am sick with a cold, so I wasn't the most exciting to party with. But I love my family and spending time with them. Thanks for the gifts!

I am now a proud owner of an iPod touch. I'm excited for audio books and lots of music!! Any suggestions of good songs, albums, or books??

One of our friends asked for more pictures of Xander, because he's the coolest dog ever! So here you go Zoe; enjoy:) I tried to make him do tricks; all I got was a handshake. But that's pretty good!

5th Year Wedding Anniversary

Crazy as it may be, today is Joe and I's 5th wedding anniversary! It's amazing how the time flies. I feel as each year goes by, it just gets better and better. I am a little sad that he is out of town this week for work, but whether we are together or apart, I feel our love grow each day. I love Joe so much and I feel so grateful to have him in my life. There is no one else I would rather have spent it with. I look forward to many more!! I love you Joe!!

I just wanted to share a poem that was recited during our wedding ceremony. We were encouraged to memorize it. However, either of us have, but I always remember it.

How Do I Love Thee?

I love thee to the depth and breadth and height

My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight

For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.

I love thee to the level of every day's

Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.

I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;

I love thee purely, as men turn from Praise.

I love thee with the passion put to use

In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.

I love thee with a love I seemed to lose

With my lost saints,-I love thee with the breath,

Smiles, tears, of all my life!-and, if God choose,

I shall but love thee better after death.
(Elizabeth Barrett Browning)
