Love Day.....

Did I say I'd have these pics up Tuesday?

I meant Friday Night......

Well if you've read my blog in the past few months you'd know our 2009 was a year to remember.

A year where we lived in 4 different states.

So for V-day I crafted these bad boys up for my husband (really for my bedroom wall).

I haven't framed them yet.

But you get the idea.

And if you don't then something's probably wrong with you.

But I'm not a doctor I'm just a hairstylist so I won't diagnose you with anything.

The state where we met and fell in love.

The state where we were married.

The state where we bought our daughter.

The state where we started our life together.

The state where my family lives.

The state we ran to for change.

The state where we had the most camp-outs.

The state where we had no luck finding a job.

The state where we fell in love with winter.

The state where even MORE of my family lives.

Oh boy.

The state where we ran to in desperation for a job.

The state where we only had each other.

The state where we learned quickly what failure feels like.

The state with the best D.I.

(Notice the frown in the picture?)

The state that wasn't our favorite.

The state we ran to for help.

The state where Corey found a job that he 'loves'.

(his word not mine. he loves his job!)

The state where I really learned what a winter coat is.

The state where Corey's family is.

The state where we truly realized what a journey the past year has been.

The state where we learned we can get through anything.

The state where we learned to live IN the moments, not just get through them.

The state where we have talked the most about starting a family of our own.

The state.

I was going to do a 5th collage. One to put right in the middle.

It was going to say.....

"Move me to another state and I'll ring your flipping neck."

But that wouldn't fit on an 81/2 by 11 piece of card stock.
