Let me explain... Our very first anniversary- 11 days before Hurricane Ike "rocked, swayed, and washed away" a good bit of our world- Ken and I celebrated our first anniversary. We had just found out we were having not one but 2 babies- what a first year! As a gift, Ken gave me this BEAUTIFUL glass vase with sand and one shell (that looks zebra print-ish- he knows what I like) and told me that every year we will add a shell. Isn't that the sweetest, most romantic gift...? Every year since the first one- I have gotten a shell to add to it. I treasure this vase of shells- it is our story. When we evacuated for Ike, this was one of the first things that I saved! Last night we tried to figure out if we would have to buy a new vase as the years go on or if the vase could hold 70 more shells! Yes- we plan to live to 100!
September 1, 2007- I married my best friend and today we celebrated 3 years of marriage. We celebrated in style: we started the night at the Gumbo Bar on Post Office then headed to Murdoch's only to realize that it was closed.... so we headed to the Poop Deck- yes, I walked in there... only to realize it was a "cash only" establishment- so off to The Spot-where we called both of our parents and waved at them on "The Spot Cam". We enjoyed reminising about how we met and Ken and Erin became a "we"! I am so thankful to be married to such an amazing man! I am excited to think about what our future holds! I know it will be amazing- because we will be together! I love you Ken Haynes!!! 3rd year
