On 5/17 John & I celebrated 9 years of marriage! I wanted to do something a little different this year, I bought him 9 balloons and each one had a happy memory attached to it from each year that we’ve been married…he loved it! My aunt surprised us with beautiful pink peonies from her garden & we were given tons of thoughtful cards and facebook messages all day, thank you to all of you who made it a great day for us! To top it all off, John & I decided to do a quick overnight trip to Kings Island since it’s been 10-15 years since both of us have been there! Just being able to check out of “adulthood” for a day was really nice! LOL We walked around, rode some rides, shopped, ate great food, played some games and had a blast just hanging out together. We stayed at the Westin in Cincy (highly recommended!) and we had a great suite overlooking downtown where there was a very cool party going on that night with a band and light show, it was awesome! John even surprised me and had room service deliver chocolate covered strawberries for our anniversary that night – yum! He’s so sweet!
