IF i lived near you... i think we'd be great friends!

Tammy Mellish

I just had the craziest of blow outs with my husbands. We never argue. He's leaving tomorrow to take care of some personal business and I was hoping that he'd spend the day here. He decided that a wheeler ride with my father and brothers might be more fun.. leaving me with the yard work and care of the children.. all weekend. I heated and than melted. Why would he think this would be okay and why am I such a bull dog for questioning it? I've been on the hot seat a lot lately with a lot of people for not letting things slide. Having said that, I came inside.. poured myself a glass of iced tea and came here to cool down. Only to find the sweetest of all posts. It's the nicest of reminders. Happy Anniversary, Josh and Karen! You said it right!

P.S.

I love the orange socks. WHO is wearing those? I'm guess that Josh was wearing a pair too? LOL!

Tracy

LOL love these! SO CUTE! Happy Anniversary Karen and Josh! :o)

Suezi Gurzi

catching up on your blog and just had to comment. that has got to be one of the most romantic gestures ever!First off that he says his vows to you every anniversary and secondly that he is gone and still gets them to you and forget about the stinkin vows to begin with....Josh Downs is a keeper!
