I love my husband because...

Henry helps me on a daily basis. Anything I ask is not too big of a job. I can always count on him. This is just one of the reasons why I love him. For all the things I ask him to do I am so grateful and indebted to him forever. Good thing our vows said "to death do us part." I love you Honey!

I love you because...

So I kept seeing all these cute signs that people are using to tell their families why they love them. They put them up in their home and every new message is another daily surprise. HOW SWEET?!

After using so many chalkboards at our wedding, I decided to use one as our "I love you because" board. I hung it in our kitchen and used it to surprise Henry with some cute messages.

Here are just a few!

Our Honeymoon in the Mountains

Click on the picture to ENLARGE

For our honeymoon we decided to do something simple and relaxing. No cruise, no tropics, just the two of us. We rented a cabin on Brother's Cove that was literally hanging off the mountain. There were 2 fireplaces, 2 TVs, a pool table and a hot tub! It was AWESOME! Highly Recommended!


We spent our time havin lunches, dinners, and ice cream. We even took in the Lumberjack Fued Show. On our way home, Henry wanted to visit the Bush's Bake Bean Factory that we passed on our trip two years ago and on our trip up that Sunday. We shopped, ate, and visited their museum. It may have been our most interesting stop of the trip. When we arrived home, Mama had decorated the yard Welcoming Mr. & Mrs. Martin Home and had a sign up from her and Daddy saying that they LOVED THEIR SON-IN-LAW! It was the cutest thing. We had a wonderful relaxing vacation and were ready to start the rest of our lives together.
