8th Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday was our 8th wedding anniversary. We take turns planning our celebrations and it was H's turn this year. In previous years, he's taken me out to dinner or a movie. Well, this year, he went quite a bit further, and it was all in secret. First, we took a motorcycle ride over the mountains and back. Then, we went to a downtown center. As we were entering, he told me that he hoped I liked the singer performing in concert, though he hadn't heard of him and doubted that I knew who it was. When finding our seats, I glanced at the tickets......and it was JOSH GROBAN!!! Of course I knew who that was, even if I only really knew one of his songs. So, we settled in and the concert began. It began a bit slow and I was a bit bored. But then it got a lot better. He performed some songs in Italian (beautiful), his violinist did an amazing solo that launched into a rendition of Kashmir by Led Zeppelin (recorded the last of it, vid below), he roamed the crowd during a song, he joked around with the audience, and he topped it off with three encores. It was very enjoyable. We were in the balcony, but I got a few pics. The best ones were when he showed up in the crowd, right under us. He is an amazing performer that gives his all in his concert. They were also filming the performance for his tour video, so that elicited some excited energy in the crowd. I told H that he did good in his planning this year.

It's hard to imagine the number 8 attached to my time with him. It hasn't flown by, but it hasn't dragged on either. I think I am in awe that we've made it this far and done so well. We married when I was quite young, we had only known each other for 4 months, and I was already a mother to a 2-year-old. We've had good times and bad. But, in it all, he is still the best person I've known. He loves me, he loves our children, he treats us well, he provides for us, he supports me in everything, he works hard, he finds me extremely attractive, and he has a good heart toward everyone. For all this and much more, I love him more everyday. His bright blue eyes and muscular form don't hurt either! ;)
