Six Month Anniversary

I can't believe Maury and I have been married for 6 months already, time is flying by.  This past 6 months has been so wonderful, I couldn't have asked for a better husband.  He does such a great job of making the time go by fast in Washington and is so patient with me when he comes home from a long day of work and I just talk his ear off.  Maury is so energetic and there is never a dull moment when he is around, I am so grateful for all of the laughs.  We both are so excited for the next 6 months because they are Maury's final months of the military and at the end of these 6 months we get to move home and be with our family and friends daily!

To celebrate these past 6 months we got in the car and drove to a place called George, Washington to see The Band Perry, Luke Bryan and Tim McGraw!  Maury is such a good sport for going to a country concert, but he really did enjoy himself and I caught him singing along quite a few times ;)  The Gorge is an incredible venue.  It is out door in the middle of no where, along the Columbia River.  I don't think there is a bad seat in this place.  You can get a reserved seat very close to the stage or pay a little less and bring your blankets and chairs and sit on a huge grass hill.  The Gorge hold 20,000 people and there are only seats for 5,000.  We had seats that were so close and it was such a great concert!

This state is so beautiful

We had such a great time and talked about the concert the whole way home. Thanks for the best six months of my life and such a fun night celebrating Maury!

Until next time,
