WOW!!! Can you believe that Marty and I have been together for 10 years today? Instead of vacationing like we had planned we decided to take a staycation at the house for a few days. Relax, catch up on bible study, work in the yard and clean the house. Sounds crazy but I am looking forward to spending the days with Marty. We have been so busy the last year that staying home and working together is going to be fun and relaxing.
Looking back at the past 10 years, it has been a wonderful road that I am honored to have taken with Marty. We were married in 1998 and lived in our first house on Pecan square. We shortly moved into our 2nd house in Broadmoor where we met two incredible individuals, Lori and Karl Kaufman. They introduced us to our church that we still attend today. From there we moved to Conway, Arkansas into our 3rd house for 1 year due to Marty's business. We returned back to Shreveport and lived with my parents for 9 months until we found our 4th home in Haughton on Millcreek. While in Haughton Marty and I had an opportunity to host a exchange student from Germany for one year. It was one of the greatest descision Marty and I have made. Vanessa became our child instantly. We still communicate regularly and plan to visit her in Germany this Christmas. Also while on Millcreek we had an incredible business opportunity that we decided to take. In taken this business deal we needed to sell our Coffee News business and our house in order to get the money for our percentage of the business. So, we sold the house and yes moved into our 5th house back in Broadmoor. The house that was next door to our previous house and the exact one that Lori and Karl lived in. We started the business and a few months later moved into our 6th house back in Haughton. That is where we are today.
Through the past few years we have also been on the roller coaster ride of infertility. After several medications and a few procedures we have come to the conclusion that having a child is definitely not God's plan for us now. We have started the adoption process which is why we have this blog.
I am so thankful for Marty. He is a wonderful husband and the best friend a gal could ever have. We have had a fabulous 10 years together and I am looking forward to what the Lord has in store for us for the next several years.
Thank you honey for loving me.
I love you and always will!!!
