On March 3, 1993, I got married to the true love of my life. We’ve been through a lot together – good, bad, better, worse. We’ve support each other through job and career changes, businesses starting and closing and many other things in between. We have two amazing (mostly) well-adjusted children. We are lucky to have each other and we know it. But, we work really hard at it too, it’s not all roses and lollipops, and we always make sure to take time for ourselves (both separately and together). We respect each other and truly feel that we’re soul mates.
Okay, mushiness aside… after losing all this weight I wanted to have some fun. We could have done some big romantic trip or something, but we really just wanted to spend some time having some real fun together. My sister (thanks, Marcy!) also wanted to come visit and have some fun auntie alone time with the kids. Talk about good timing! She flew out for a week to hang out with us and the kiddos and Tom and I jumped in the car and headed to San Antonio. We walked all over the Riverwalk and went to Six Flags, where we rode every roller coaster we could. We had an amazing few days and we had an awful lot of fun together, being silly and just being together in one of our favorite get away places.
On the Riverwalk, we took a boat tour, which was fun and it was great to get to ride around and learn a little more about the area. We stayed in the beautiful Drury Inn right on the Riverwalk and in my favorite area of it. We ate, drank, walked and had a fabulous time. At Six Flags, we rode Boomerang six times in a row, made sure we got the first car on Goliath and rode Poltergeist entirely too many times *laughing* I’d never really ridden roller coasters before this year and it was amazing for me to be able to do it!
And some photos (of course!)

I was also able to meet two online friends of mine from California that just happened to be staying at the Riverwalk at the same time! We met for dinner one night and ice cream the next (LOL, of course – we’re all weight loss folks – LOL!)
Here’s to 20 fabulous years and many many more. Thanks for being my partner in this crazy journey we call life, babe!
And here’s our photo from our wedding – yes, I did that on purpose to my hair. LOL!
Gosh, we look SO young!
