Today is our 9 year anniversary... only 9 days from our wedding day - crazy! This anniversary was slightly different from others in the past... this time there was a bottle of champagne involved! Rick gave me this really ridiculous and fantastic ring that , as he knows, "I'm secretly in love with". It was a complete surprise and I was very excited about it! He was also very thoughtful and gave me new charcoals and a sketch pad so I can start drawing again, which makes me very happy. With 9 days to go, and only a few things to finish, I am getting very anxious!
