Matt and I went to Ireland for our 10th wedding anniversary. it's hard to believe it's been 10 years, but it also feels about right. what's more difficult to wrap my head around is I'm no longer a 20-something. I think that's more of a "what?!" for me than how long we've been married.
when I look at our wedding photos I always think we look so young. I think that's because we were ;) I was about a week shy of 20.
I think the first 5 years were the hardest - definitely seemed like the longest - but we got over ourselves and got serious about having kids (I was the foot-dragger) and it's just sorta zipped by since then.

Slieve League and climbed up the mountain. I wasn't really expecting to like that, but in spite of the biting wind, I had a good time. it was very beautiful.
on our way back from the cliffs, we stopped at an actual beach, Fintra Bay. Matt said the water was pretty cold there, too - crazy weirdo! they had these huge jagged rocks in the middle of the beach that were encrusted with clams and other stuff. it was very interesting to look at.
Cabra Castle was very cool. it had a Victorian feel to it - I felt like we were staying in one of the historical homes we tour in Galveston. we were on the 3rd floor overlooking the West Wing, and it was all stairs to our room.
we flew to Boston on my birthday and stayed overnight at the Ames, got some dinner (we'd been craving pizza, but it was so hard to find for some reason) and dessert (Mike's Pastry again - German Chocolate Cake - so good!). the next morning we walked around in the rain and did a little shopping for the boys, and then flew home.

I'm so glad God blessed me with the perfect man for me - I'm looking forward to our next big anniversary, and the days when the time before we were together seems so short compared to how long we've been in love.
