Hi!  We are home!  We arrived back in Georgia last Friday night!  I don't think I was ever so happy to see our home in my life. I drove 12 hours the first day and 10 the next.  Mostly it took so long because of traffic delays.  Anyhoo, it was so fun seeing all my family. I still have some photos that I need to go through and edit, but the kids start school this week. I am not sure when I am going to get around to it.  Frank and I celebrated our 18 wedding anniversary this past Saturday!  18 years!  I can't believe it!  It seems like yesterday that I met him on a church camping trip to Whidby Islands.  You know when my husband and I first met he knew he was going to marry me and it was love at first sight, but for me I took a little time to come around.  It is funny that I didn't know he was the one until I was on a plane to meet his family in Germany.  We had been apart for a couple of days and I missed him so deeply and that was when I knew he was the one.  It was a good thing that I finally got that confirmation because shortly after getting off the plane he proposed to me back in his home town.  Boy do I love this man!!!!  He is such a good husband and a good father and I can't imagine spending my life with anyone else.  Here are 5 things I love about my husband though I could list many more; He is such a hard worker.  We would never starve because he would go out and get 5 jobs if he had too to support our family.  He loves his children and makes it a priority to connect with each of them on a daily basis.  I love how when he is tired his accent comes out and he says bath like a person from England because that is where he learned how to speak English. I love how he is just a generally good person.  People come to him to seek council and once he is your friend he would do anything for you.  He gives me the freedom to soar.  My husband is an introvert, and while he doesn't really like to travel he doesn't stop me from traveling.   I love you Frank!  Thank you for asking me to marry you and for our 5 children.   You are the best!
