Happy Birthday Love!

Today is Travis' birthday! I just thought I would take a minute to tell you a few things that I love about him!

* He stays in bed in the morning to cuddle with me while I still sleep instead of getting right up
* He doesn't mind doing the gross stuff in and around the house
* He never complains about my cooking - and sometimes lack of cooking
* He humors me and wears the clothes I buy for him
* He uses the flashlight to look at my throat when I feel sick
* He watches cheesy television shows and movies - just because I like them
* He learns the lingo and uses it during those cheesy shows
* He loves me even though I'm a mess sometimes
* He encourages me to talk when I'm frustrated
* He wants to hear anything I have to say - even if it doesn't make sense
* He is 100% supportive of me, my work, hobbies, etc.
* He works hard to support our family (even if it is just the two of us, and the dogs)
* He knows I'm half crazy and loves me anyway
* He knows my family is crazy and still likes spending time with them
* He teases me and pokes fun at my little quirks (and my big ones)
* He is thoughtful
* He is loving
* He loves his family and supports them
* He is the kindest man I have ever known

I am the luckiest girl alive to have snagged this man! Travis, I love you! You're amazing and I'm so happy to be able to spend the rest of our lives together!

Try a Little Harder

It's hard to believe it's a new year already! Wow! Time flies when you're having fun right?! I've already really recapped what has happened in 2009 for Travis and I - and I don't want to bore you but I'm going to list a few things here... for posterity's sake!

* We got Married!!!! March 14th - the best day of my life!
* In May Travis joined a Team at Ameriprise Financial - he has enjoyed work much more since!
* We bought a house!!!! June 10th we signed the papers to our cute home in Taylorsville!
* I Graduated with an MSW!!!! August 4th - it took FOREVER to finish but boy am I glad I did!
* I left the State in July and started with Support Coordination Services of Utah in August!
* Also, in August I started teaching at UVU
* November & December - we spent our first Holiday's as a married couple!

A lot has happened for us... hopefully 2010 will bring some more exciting things to our lives. Because it's the new year, it's time for more resolutions! I don't know how I feel about resolutions in general - but I think one goal will sum up everything I want to accomplish this year - my goal this year is to Try a Little Harder! I won't go into everything this encompasses because it would take forever and be insanely boring - but I figure if I try a little harder - things will continue to be amazing in our lives! Here's to 2010 and trying a little harder!
