Paul and I are coming upon our ten year anniversary this year. Ten years! I can hardly believe that it has been that long. Quite frankly Paul can’t believe it either because one night when I was feeling emotional and needy I complained that he doesn’t whisper “sweet nothings” like he used to. He jokingly replied, “What do you expect Honey, we’ve been married 5 YEARS!” In all seriousness. Only thing is, we had been married almost 9 years. As I looked at him with raised eyebrows he finally realized that he was way off and we both belly laughed until we cried. Maybe that is why we’ve lasted this long, because we can laugh at things together! Two apartments, two houses, 3 college degrees, 5 jobs, and 3 kids between the two of us our 10 year anniversary is upon us.
How do we want to celebrate? Honestly, I would LOVE to tour Europe! Paul served his LDS mission in Belgium and France and I would adore the idea of strolling down cobblestone streets eating one too many pastries and whistling a happy tune. But that is very far away and if you are traveling very far away you should stay for a pretty long while. Aaaaand we have these cute little children whom we love dearly and think they would enjoy a trip to Disneyland a lot more….
So…we are going to Disneyland. I went a few times when I was teeny tiny and Paul has never been, so really it will be like a first time for all of us. As much as I love the idea of strolling down cobblestone streets I also cannot get over the idea of seeing my daughter’s face light up when she sees Minnie Mouse for the first time. She may grow to never remember that memory but I WILL. As a Mother there are certain “pay days” that fill you up with excitement and light when seeing magic in your child’s eyes. Christmas is one of those times and I imagine Disneyland will be a lot like Christmas. It may seem cheesy, but bring on the cheese. I want that Minnie Mouse glowing moment with my little darling.
