Brent is a great gift-giver, always. (At least since he forgot my birthday T-W-O years in a row!!! Don't hold it against him. I'm doing a pretty good job of that on my own.) Anyway, he really is. The three pictured gifts may not seem like much but it is the way he gives as much as what he gives. ROSES--a stereotypical anniversary gift but not from Brent. He gives flowers on two occasions--for forgiveness (tee hee) and to remind me that I am more than a mom, (mediocre) housekeeper, or friend. I am his WO-MAN. He loves me. Diet Dr. Pepper and a straw is a reminder that he does not judge me by my weaknesses. He accepts the whole me. It is nice to be reassured of his unconditional love.
We had a lovely time alone in St. George. I send a big shout out to the brave sister-in-law/aunt-of-the-year who allowed us a little peace and quiet at her mental expense. Thanks, A! We had a great time running, shopping, eating, hot-tubbing, watching non-Disney TV and an action flick, and sleeping in. These are pictures of us during our respective races. You can tell by the bigger smile on my face that I ran the shorter distance ;)
