Then...and Now....20 years in the making!!!

It started 20 years ago...a fairytale romance...sorta. Well, we had dark forces trying to tear us apart. We had to fight to be together and it ended up in a marriage...Sounds like a fairytale romance to me. Anyhoo!!! This week Hubby and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in the a remarkable manor...we worked. Oh yeah, we were into the anniversary. Basically, what it boiled down to is that with me in school neither of us could take time off for our celebration so i would need to request off on Saturday for us to be together. And so we did....and I got the day off. Of course with everthing else is our lives there was one was the Saturday of the Children's Miracle Network Torch Relay. So, Hubby and I trotted off this morning with one of our kids who surprised us by volunteering to help at the relay. We had a blast. We celebrated our anniversary in style by walking a 5k with a couple hundred of our closest friends. We even had some of the guests from out hotel come along for the fun. As always we had fun in anything we do. It's never dull and we partied like rockstars. Afterwards, we signed the bus and grabbed some lunch.
Tonight we dine for a quiet night away from the kids and then we will come home and relax the rest of the night. 20 years wears you out dontcha know?!?!?

Well, it finally happened. I've come into the realization my baby is leaving. While sitting at home spending my free few seconds of my life I found out Rinni's Graduation was scheduled. My daughter...that cute little face I've loved since being yanked out of my womb. Apparently she was happy right where she was.
Just a few days from now she officially puts in for BYU and BYU-I. This has been her dream since she was 5. She even had a BYU Cheerleader Barbie she carried around everywhere. Now, she is a confident young woman ready to take on the world. Seriously...a Mama couldn't be prouder.
The only saving grace is that I am graduating 2 weeks before she does....unless this schedule kills me. Ugh!!! Until then..look out world....Rinni will be unleashed on the world. Good luck've got some stiff competition!!!
