that one time we went on a dinner cruise

For our 1 year (dating) anniversary Derek took me on a trip to San Diego! It was perfect! We got to go to the beach and swing on the swings and eat ice cream at midnight (where I gave Derek his promise ring), we explored gardens, got to go to the zoo, we went to the maritime museum...and Derek surprised me with a dinner cruise! It was beautiful! We had such a lovely dinner and they even had balloons, wine glasses, and they announced us! I love this picture of us! It was taken on the deck of the boat, I remember being so in love and thinking about how I couldn't believe it had already been a year with this handsome man... and here we are 10 years later! I love him more now than I did then and I am so thankful that God has blessed me with someone so amazing!

(that last one is a blurry view of the city from the dinner cruise boat)

On that same trip we got to see my brother get sworn into the Army by my dad! It was so special! I had moved to Las Vegas (to be with Derek) the month after we got home from this trip so that was the last time I was going to see him until after he graduated from basic and AIT and could plan another trip. He and I had always fought growing up, but the last years of us living at home we became best friends and so it was hard to say goodbye!


  1. the dinner cruise sounds like it was very fun && how cool that you were there when your brother get sworn into the army, and got to be with him.

    I've nominated you for a liebster award on my blog.

    1. Thanks! It was so special that I got to be there! Thank you so much!! I just recently did a blog post on the lobster award - you can find it here :) http://thefoundlife.blogspot.com/2015/04/the-liebster-award.html

  2. What a sweet trip! I love that the two of you had such a memory-filled trip and that you also had a chance to see your brother, too. So many memories made!

    Also, love that you and your brother get along better now, isn't it cool how sibling relationships change with age? :)

    p.s. I also love that you're sharing stories from the past--I read that right, right? It' such a fun idea and a great way to really cherish and save those memories!

    1. Thank you! I love making memories that you can call upon years and years later!

      YES! I love being friends with my brothers! I remember my mom telling me that we would be friends later on in life and I didn't believe her, but I'm so glad she was right!

      Yes, stories from the past - I've been so busy lately I've just been putting up random posts that I can put together pretty quick.
