    12 Years

    Yesterday marked 12 years since I walked down the aisle to the most amazing human I have the pleasure of spending my days with. It is the first year I didn’t make a publicly acknowledge or write a blog or do much of anything to say that it was our anniversary. Heck, privately we didn’t really acknowledge it either. We woke and said “happy anniversary” and then I apologized that I didn’t do anything this year. No card. No surprises. No plans. Nada. Nothing. John didn’t either.

    This is not our couch

    This is just John sitting and relaxing on the “Ashton couch.”  Being a smart ass. 😛  Too bad it is “too much” for us…I’m not big on the thumbtacky things all along the front and just the scroll arms is too much. Too old person/rich snob for me.
