Nine Years

Nine years ago, Joel and I tied the knot. And since Joel is such a 'numbers' is "Our Marriage In Numbers":

In 9 short years, we've...

*run into 0 deer with our car
*had only 1 major fight that was started by corn
*birthed 2 (almost 3!) beautiful children
*lived in 3 houses/apartments
*remodeled 3 (almost 4) bathrooms
*driven 5 cars
*visited 6 countries, 3 provinces, and 22 states
*visited 7 baseball fields together
(although in my defense, my rapt attention during those games totals just under 1 hour.)
*watched "Dumb and Dumber" 9 times (probably)
*eaten 42 pounds of chicken wings
*washed 972 sinkloads of dishes

...which brings me to some very exciting news...we are installing a dishwasher tomorrow! Hip hip hooray! It's our 9-year anniversary present.

I'm very thankful for our years together--and hope for a large NUMBER more!
