Big Brown Eyes

I used to think I had big eyes. I would always hear the expression “big brown eyes” and I thought “I have brown eyes so my eyes must be big too” and I never gave much thought to the possibility that the statement might not apply to all people with brown eyes. But apparently, it does not apply to me.

I was talking to one of my friends and out of nowhere she said “Kacie, you kind of have small eyes.” I tried to play it off like she didn’t just burst my bubble and said “I know.” I thought maybe she just had bad eyesight so later I asked my mom and sister if they thought I had big eyes, they chuckled and said no. So here is a warning to all you brown eyed people out there, just because your eyes are brown, it does not necessarily mean your eyes are big. It is time for me to face this sad truth.

For our anniversary weekend, the hubby and I headed to Capitola/Santa Cruz. The weather was perfect and we had a great time! We got there Friday morning and walked around downtown Capitola and relaxed on the beach. On Saturday, Capitola had their annual car show so the hubby had fun drooling over all the cars he wants. Overall it was a great anniversary weekend 🙂

P.S. My camera battery died so we took these photos on my phone.

Happy Anniversary

Four years ago today, I married my best friend. We have been together for seven years and I could not ask for a better person to share my life with. I’m not one to get mushy and share my feelings so I will just say I am one lucky gal and I love my hubby! 
Happy Anniversary Cody!!! Love you!!!


I know most of you probably don’t care to see more pictures of me & the hubby but I like to look at them so here they are 😉
