From The Mountains To The Sea

Picture this last night:
the light are out.
Ray is 30 seconds away from falling asleep.
Laura yells “OH MY GOSH.”
Ray jolts in natural defense while thinking we’re being attacked


He’s used to Annalee and I flipping out over random crap.
He congratulates me, rolls over. Falls back asleep.


Not just one of those “oh hey let’s be best friends for 2 years then stop talking” best friends. I’m talking about a legitimate best friend forever. If you’re more familiar with playground slang that’s BFF4Ls. Or something like that.

she makes me laugh.

a lot.

According to the Urban Dictionary, a friendaversary is only legit if you know the date you met. Good thing we’ve got Facebook to keep us straight.

and so it begins.

YALL – She is top of the line best friend. You can’t ask for a better one. I don’t even need to explain her awesomeness to you because the joy on our faces shows it.

Words can not express how thankful I am for her. From college, to our first jobs, to engagement, to my wedding… she is my rock.

She was the first phone call on January 8th,
The first hug as an official alumnas of Virginia Tech,
She held me when I collapsed on August 11,
She took care of logistics while I danced the night away as Mrs.

She is the best there is, folks.

She loves sand
I love hills

She loves oceans
I love rivers

She loves an endless blue horizon
I love towering mountains of green, red, orange, and yellow

We both love God, laughing, music, our men,

and life.

She’s my rock, my joy, my comfort, my constant.

Here’s to you, leebee. ♥

Bake yourself a cupcake, and let’s celebrate. IMG_4027

  2. Many people living in South America eat the tubers as a fruit,
    together with honey and lemon juice, to add it to the fruit salad.

    The Raw Food movement has exploded in the last 10 years drawing hundreds of thousands
    of people all over the world into its magic. Make sure you choose the one which does
    not contain dextrose or maltodextrin.

  3. Hello admin, i see your website needs fresh posts.
    Daily updates will rank your website in google higher, content is king nowadays.

    If you are to lazy to write unique articles everyday you
    should search in google for:
    Ightsero’s Essential Tool

  4. Insert your logo or business information into each field
    to use as marketing tools. This is an observation made by many analysts
    of the market. All non-believers, who don’t think
    that “rock and roll” is dead, should take a
    look at today’s music charts.

What do you think?
