On July 6th we celebrated 7 years married. This year it was my (Addie's) turn to plan the festivities. Friday July 3rd I planned a surprise day date, with a few things planned, but our day got changed a bit. We ended up walking around Greenlake and then to the UW campus. It was a beautiful day thankfully. We walked to the UW Quad with the cherry trees and Bill didn't know what the surprise would be, until he guessed everything else and then came up with the right answer--a photoshoot with my friend Acacia from Acacia Photography. She did a wonderful job and it was really fun for us. See some of the pictures on her blog here. As a side note, I've been meaning to have Acacia do some family photos of us before she leaves for Chicago in September, and I'm really glad we at least got some photos of me and Bill since it's rare we are in pictures together. Acacia and her husband and girls are moving to plant a church in Chicago, a city that desperately needs to hear about Jesus. It's a bittersweet goodbye, but I know God is bigger than me and will do great things through their ministry at The Painted Door. Thank you Acacia! I will miss you so much!
Anyway...after photos we went to Kirkland intending to go swing dancing, but we'd walked so much already our feet were too tired! So instead we had a yummy Irish dinner and saw a movie. Romatic!
On our actual anniversary we had a few hours to ourselves and enjoyed dinner out and a pedicure. Yes. A pedicure. Pretty toes!
I look forward to many more years with you Billy!
