... exciting anniversary...

ok, so our 8th anniversary was Wednesday. In typical Hambrick fashion, we gave no gifts nor cards. We did, however, manage to go to lunch at Hong Kong Star. Yay for me, not so much for Steve, who isn't much of a fan of chinese food...but he was gracious and didn't object. and i'll have you know my new commitment is to invest in family, not to worry about the stock market. and to focus on the color yellow. thank you, fortune cookies.

instead of a romantic dinner out with candles and wine, i took sara to the urgent care. strep throat and a red ear. we all wish for such an exciting anniversary.
here are two pictures of the experience in the office. wasn't i nice to include the one of sara getting her throat scraped? :) now you can even picture what it must be like when sara has a stomach bug.

even though we didn't do anything overly fabulous on the 25th, i recognize that celebrating your marriage isn't supposed to happen just one day each year. it's not about a nice dinner or gifts. it's about living well and loving life together in the midst of sick kids, tight funds, and busy schedules. it's about loving sacrificially and preferring the other when you'd rather do things your way. it's about working through tough seasons and choosing commitment even when you'd rather not. it's about recognizing the gift that other person is to you, and enjoying him/her. and there is no one i would rather embark on the journey of life with than steve hambrick. happy anniversary hon!
