Last Friday, my husband and I celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary. I wished I could say all those years were perfect but alas only in fairytales they are. Marriage is such hard work after the first year. lol Once the "honeymoon" stage passes, it's real life. It's sharing your life with someone that is not you but has their own ideas and taste. It takes work and compromises. Lots of compromises but as long you have a strong foundation, you can overide upcoming obstacles. Oh and prayer works too. lol
We decided to spend the day at the beach near a lake. We asked MIL if she would like to join us and she was happy to go too. I packed a cooler full of goodies and lots of snacks. It was a day just to sit, relax and eat. lol
The weather was nice and the kids had fun. They didn't want to bring their swimsuits because "we don't want to go in the lake." Yeah, 5 minutes after being there they went in the lake. lol They asked if it was ok to get their clothes wet and I said sure. Why do kids ignore their moms suggestions, like wear your swimsuit when going to a lake??? soupir
We spent a few hours there until MIL was getting tired and sleepy. It wasn't a romantic day just a day spent with my family. Exactly what I wanted. Exactly what we needed.
P.S. Oh I did get a nice gift though. Momma got some Akoya pearl earrings and necklace. They are beautiful and I should wear them often since you should with pearls. hihihi
