Oh my goodness last night was incredible! It didn't go exactly as planned, it was better. We ate our favorite meal and drank and talked. I had a Drunken Monkey. Apparently it doesn't take much alcohol to make a monkey drunk. Just sayin. I also had my very first Bahama Mama. Yeah...that was much better. After dinner, we took a walk over to the ocean. The sun was setting, but there was just enough light to read. I read my renewed vows to him as the water lapped at our feet. It was the perfect moment.. Hubby said that the scripture I quoted in my vows was exactly what he needed to hear.
We got to the wine shop by 8:30 and they had a private room set up for us. We talked and drank wine. We reminisced about the past 10 years and all the crazy stuff we've done. We circumnavigated the country in an RV with a 4 month old (every time Hubby would start the RV, he would say "Rolling!" to which I would reply "Rolling Aye!" to confirm I was aware of his intent to go). I invented a product and started a business. Hubby got his bachelors and then his MBA. We decided to "Go Big or Go Home" with my product and sold everything except what we could fit in the RV and the SUV, and with a 2 year old, a 4 year old, and a cat, we moved from Oregon to Florida.
We talked about the next 10 years and what we'll reminisce about on our 20th anniversary; how our kids will be in high school, our son a senior and our daughter a sophmore. What crazy things will we have done? What adventures would we take? How much will our lives have changed?
It's amazing that after 10 years, we are still getting to know each other. We love each other more and more every day. We've gotten so much closer since we introduced spanking into our lives. Who'd a-thunk it? And now we are talking rules. Rule 1: Get up with the alarm. Be ready to leave for work by the time Hubby gets back from dropping the kids at school. Rule 2 (added just last night): No texting and driving. Both of us do it, but I'm the worst. He said it will be a great rule for both of us. If he texts me and I'm driving, he said to wait until I got to a stop light and text "dr" so he would know that I'm not ignoring him and I will text back as soon as I've gotten to where I'm going. I can see that making rules is a lot easier for him.But I did admit to him that I am curious about the first time I break a rule. I told him that I wouldn't do it on purpose just to find out, but that I wonder what I'm actually in for. So far all of our spankings have been intimate. I think I'm scared to find out what a punishment spanking will be like.
It's been an incredible 10 years so far. We are starting the next 10 years off in a DD relationship and he's driving. Rolling Aye!
