10 Years and Going Strong

10 years ago today, I married my high school sweetheart.  I can still remember the day so vividly.  It was perfect in every way - exactly the way I planned it to be (I planned it for over a year) and the end result was the best ever - I was married to my precious husband, the man the God created just for me.  How blessed I was then, how blessed I am today.
This morning I have been remembering all the details of the day...spending the day at the salon with my mom and bridesmaids getting our hair done and how Jason had his dad deliver flowers to me there.  Thinking about my mom and my grandmother helping me get dressed at the church.  Remembering how precious my granddad was before he walked me down the aisle and the sweet conversation we had.  Remembering how much fun my bridesmaids were and how they kept my nerves calm and belly hurting from laughing so much.  Remembering how sweet Jason was when he first saw me in my dress and was afraid to touch me.   Such sweet memories...
Below are a few pictures from our wedding day:









and the most recent picture of us...it was taken last fall just days before Jason left for this deployment:


I would give anything for us to be together today, but it just did not work out like that.  Even though we could not be together, Jason did send me some very great gifts!  (gotta love those Afghan markets!) 




And of course I had to send him a little happy anniversary prize.  Since there is not a whole lot I can send, I just decorated the inside of the box with some hearts the kids made:
 then made a "Nuts About You" basket...(cause I am nuts about him)  (= 

I was lucky enough to get a phone call and to skype today so I am a very happy girl...now trying to remain positive.  My little boy has another all stars game tonight (we have games everyday this week and tournament next week so that is the reason for my lack of posting and reading blogs...hopefully I can catch up soon cause there is so much I want to share)  So I will spend my anniversary at the ballfield (yay)  I will not however, eat another thing from the concession stand.  (;

Jessica, I am in tears. Your blog will be a blog I will visit often. We have a few things in common. First I will tell you HOW I came across your blog. I was on Facebook and just typed my blog name in to see how it would appear through networked blogs. It didn't for some reason and your blog came up instead. My blog-
The 4-Crow's. I just recently changed over to my own domain and am now a dot com- WooHoo. So we both have the last name of Crow, have four family member, a son, a daughter, and get this a husband named Jason! AMAZEBALLS!!! We also share a love for our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and that is just pretty awesome. So now that I sound like a crazy stalker from Oklahoma I will close this comment with a big Happy Anniversary! We are only at #6! I love the Coach gifts, your Jason has excellent taste and obviously he knows your are "NUTS" about him! My prayers are lifted for you and I look forward to connecting to your more through the blogworld etc. ShaRhonda Crow
