Today is our 9th anniversary!
If anyone were to ask me for marriage advice, I would say to marry someone you love, but way more importantly, marry someone you like. After 9 years, I still enjoy talking to Daniel about his day, watching our favorite shows together, and planning for the future. A future that will include many more anniversaries.
So tonight we will go out and celebrate our marriage and our friendship. We don’t know for sure what we are doing yet, but it doesn’t matter, because we just like being together.
And while I was writing this, he just came home with flowers. #keeper
Today is also a 20 Wishes check-in day, so here is my list and progress so far. There are 2 months and 8 items left!

8. improve our backyard– Daniel did some work on this! He did some weed-eating, picked up toys, swept, and my mom gave us an outdoor rug to put down on the cement. We’ve actually been able to go outside and play! Still a little more weed-eating to do, but it looks a whole lot nicer!

14. overhaul my wardrobe– Harrison and I had a nice little half day while Vanessa was at the zoo, and Carter had a half day at school. It would have been nice to have the whole day together, but he naps in the afternoon anyway! We played with trains and I took him for his 15-month checkup (no shots!).
