{Happy Anniversary} Timothy James!

To celebrate 7 years of marriage we ...


Filled up the PriusC ... {our first time in over a month!}



Road tripped it to Gruene, TX.



Stopped in Waco for coffee at Common Grounds.



Got our fishing licenses.



Stayed at the Gruene Mansion's restored 1870's cotton plantation barn.


Took naps in our Kammoks.


Ate dinner at the Gristmill.



Danced here.



Shopped at The Gruene Antique Co.



Fell in love with this guy.



Skipped rocks.



Ate at the Gristmill {again}.



Saw signs that reminded us of sweet friends.



Went fly fishing.



Caught 12 lb carp.



Small mouth bass.


Rainbow trout.


And more rainbow trout ...


We also exchanged anniversary gifts {this year's traditional and modern gifts were wool & brass}.



Left our mark.



And watched a movie out on the front porch.


Overall, we had an amazing time being back in the same small town where we spent our honeymoon.


And no road trip would be complete without stopping at Gourdough's in Austin for donuts.


Tim ordered the 'Sara's Joy' in honor of Twinner. I would have tried the 'Razzle Dazzle' or 'Son of a Peach' had it not been for the dern Whole30. What would you have ordered?



So without further ado, Happy Anniversary to the man who makes me want to be at my best whenever I am with him. The past 7 years have been an incredible journey filled with lots of adventures, forgiveness, laughter, and grace. I would not be the woman I am today if it weren't for your enduring patience and unconditional love. I'm head over heals for you, dude!

Xoxo,
Em

Happy Anniversary to you both! Today is our wedding anniversary as well- 1 year! We made it :) We spent our weekend in Chatanooga, TN. Thank you for the encouragement you two have given to me through these past several month since I stumbled upon your blog, simply by your honest post and the love you have for one another that works and forgives.

Emo, this is amongst my top 3 fav posts of all time! #1 is because this was top 2 fav trips of all time. #2 because you and I developed a new love for fly fishing. #3 because you wore those awesome shades...and I get to relive your cutiness by looking through the pics. Love you to the moon!
