True Love!

Since Valentine's Day was only a little over a week ago I thought I would post about a true love story of a married couple....us!

At the beginning of the school year, Brandon and I were so fortunate to have a second car basically given to us by another student and his wife. We have been so grateful for the car and the extra freedom it has given me. It was seriously a much needed blessing from a loving Heavenly Father. The car is a 1997 Honda Civic and it is green; although Brandon would defend that it is blue. It has a few quirks, but it get Brandon from point A to point B.

The only down side of this car was the fact that I didn't know how to drive a clutch. This problem was solved when we used our precious date nights for Brandon to teach me how to drive a clutch. For the most part he was pretty patient with me and now I can drive the other car when I am by myself. I am not promising anyone a smooth ride since I haven't perfected the art of driving a clutch.

If that isn't true love, I don't know what is.

Also, Brandon is studying to be an optometrist and has asked me a few times to let him take a peek at my eyes. One of the times he dilated my eyes to be able to study them. Brandon was so thoughtful that afterwords he jimmy rigged a contraption with his tools to help me see so I could still read my book. Brandon thought it was hilarious how I looked that he thought he would take a picture.If that isn't true love, I don't know what is. The joy of married life!

Oh I hate driving clutch! I am already kindof a nervous driver, but driving clutch gives me ulcers. I will do anything to avoid lights, or 4 ways on hills!! Good Job Natalie!!!!!!

That is a good story because I think one of the universal truths among married people is that their husbands dont like the way their wives drive. Also nice goggles.

Thanks for your comments on my blog. I got my camera for free at an x~mas party, it's just a cheap little canon. But I like to play around and edit my photo's on Photoshop. I have a really nice camera that I don't use as much cause it's a film camera, what was I thinking, digital is so much better. You take really good pictures, I can tell you have a passion for photography as well. Your kids are so cute, they are always so smiley just like their mommy:)

Did you know Grandpa taught me how to drive a stick shift? It took a long time, though. I thought I would never ever ever be able to drive it without him, and now? I LOVE it! Its great to have something to do with both hands- and they get better gas mileage! Good work, guys.

That is love! The contraption is pretty nifty. Good luck with the clutch; I tried once and pretty much failed. Your kids are so beautiful and becoming so grown up!
