Song for us

On Sept. 8th Brandon and I celebrated our 9 year wedding anniversary. Brandon worked, when he got home I had a yummy dinner ready and he had brought home a small cake and flowers so sweet.
About 10 or 11 years ago when we were engaged I said it was sad that we didn't have a song. ( I am one of the those sappy girls ). I left it at that. Just a passing thought. He told me a few days later, he thought the Johnny Cash song "I Walk the Line" would be a good song. I thought, Johnny Cash that is someone that my Papa listened to. I thought you liked Classic Rock?? This was long before the movie, so I really had no idea who he was, sad I know.
I went and listened to it, how sweet. Over the years I have listened to more Johnny Cash and actually like most of it. Today when I was driving Jackson to school I heard that song. I started think how much I love my husband. How much he must have thought about choosing a song.
I love my husband so much. I know there is no one else for me. He handles all my crazy, especially when I am pregnant. He works so hard for us. Brandon is the best father I know. I love to watch him play with kids. How he holds them when they are so little for hours, just enjoying holding them. There are a lot of people who think he is mean or cold or quiet they just know him. He really is sweet and thoughtful, not just to me. He is the guy who get the bugs out, who double checks locks at 1 am when I wake up scared, who always asks me if I want a nap and hardly ever takes one for himself, who washs just about all our laundry, who can ALWAYS tell when something is wrong with me, who just loves me.

I wanted to write a post about him, especially after hearing that song. When I print these out I want my kids to read this and I know how much we care for each other.


This blanket I made for a friend I went to HS with. We played softball together, tons of fun memories. We have stayed friends over 11 years since HS. She had a little girl Alexis Sue. My mom helped me with star on back. I didn't show much of the front. There are 6 different fabrics that I used.

My friend Sonnet had a baby the end of April. I didn't get the blanket to her a bit aftwards. Sydney Virginia. She is such a doll! Sonnet and I have been friends since 8th grade. Too many fun times to even count. One of those people that you click with and know you will always be friends with. I think we talk on the phone probably at least twice a day on avg. :) I love her. She would give you the shirt off her back if you needed it.
I did these fabrics, kinda 70's like, but I LOVED them!
