Happy Anniversary, Dave! :)
I don't know if anyone else does this, but I think it is because of my husband's competitive nature that causes us to try to be the first to wish the other an anniversary greeting on the 2nd of EVERY month. It is a good reminder, though, to think about every month's progress on our journey together in life. It has been a great 11 years and 2 months. God is incredible about pairing people.
Since last November, so much has transpired. A good renewal for our marriage is that we are currently teaching a marriage enrichment class on Tuesday nights at the base chapel. We love the people in it, and we are getting much out of the content as we prepare and teach the class. (Thank you Dr. and Mrs. Cutrer for prepping us!) :) It has also forced me to read (Do I have time for reading now? I guess so!) some new books (to me) on marriage. Fun! One that I am especially enjoying is His Needs, Her Needs: How to Affair Proof Your Marriage (Or something like that; sorry, don't know how to italicize nor underscore the title. Yes, things like that still bother me.).
I am glad Dave and I still enjoy hiking together. The great thing is that Makana loves to go with us as well. Yeah! I wonder if she'll enjoy snowboarding . . . . I told myself I had to learn to snowboard if I wanted to see my husband during the winter time while we were in northern Japan. Now it is fun to do so, even though I like to take in the scenery, while Dave's motto (along with a lot of our guy friends) seems to be, "Full speed ahead!"
