An Anniversary & A Black Belt

Today is the day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

3 years of karate 3 days a week (most of the time) and today is the day!!!!!

Brandon goes for his black belt today. I am beside myself and covered in goose bumps. This is a very big deal!! The school is having a special testing too that they don't usually have and a lot of the other ATA schools are coming over to test their black belts going for their first belt and black belts going for their 2nd and 3rd degrees. Man are we in for a show!! Flying kicks, board breaking, serious bad mamajamma forms. LOVE IT. I am so excited for Brandon. Please pray for Brandon to keep his focus. He has to do some hard board breaks too.

Today is also my 11th wedding anniversary!!! It's a big day all around. This morning started off fun too. I never set the alarm because I always wake up at 6am no matter what. Well, guess who slept in. I looked at the clock and y'all I need contacts to see properly otherwise everything is fuzzy. So I look at the clock & in my eyes I see 8:48. Okay, testing starts at 9am. I jumped up yelling & thankfully my hubby who has good eyes told me the correct time. So I toddled over to the coffee pot all adrenaline filled and distraught to see roses from our garden and a unbelievably beautiful card made from his computer with patterns and such?? He must have used a program. It was filled with a letter to me and I cried like a baby. Do you know what he said to me? He said I was his shining glory. Tears tears tears.

Have a great day & I'll post about Brandon later!! Hurray!!

I just have to say that I love that your name is "Still Learning" on your blog. We were so made to learn and discover and dig for hidden treasures in God's word. Love it!

Hey! I saw on the Nesting Place comments about the swap that you're in Atlanta - I am in Augusta, and since we're pretty much neighbors I thought I'd say hi!

Happy Anniversary!! Hope this next year is fabulous! We just celebrated our 4th.
