So Jamie has been giving me a hard time that I would have nothing to say about our trip to Seattle. He took me there for our 10 year anniversary that we celebrated this past September 20th. The trip was amazing, the city is so fun, and the scenery is breathtaking. We saw the Buckeyes in Pike Market and then watched them woop up on Washington the next day. See, I have a lot to say about the city of Seattle. But what I have had a hard time finding words for is to somehow convey what it means to be Mrs. James Miller for 10 years. And I have nothing. I am speechless. Words can do no justice to describe 10 years of life with my best friend, my soulmate, my biggest fan, my life partner, the amazing father of my children, my source for all things Buckeye, my real life hero of faith. So all that I can come up with is part of a song that was sung on our wedding day...

At the end of a long day can't close my eyes
Watching you as the sun sets
As it slowly waves goodbye
It's times like these I thank the Lord for the life that we share
And everyday I spend with you is another Answered Prayer

Answered Prayer
When your heart touches mine
We've found a love only few ever find
And if life should end tomorrow
I leave a millionaire
'Cuz in my life I take with me a life of Answered Prayers

You have shown me the power of what love can do
I see glimpses of Heaven in your simple "I love you"
And every time I think of it- it almost seems unfair
For a girl like me to have so many answered prayers

I am a rich woman. I love you Babe!

That's my deleted comment, now that I know it leaves evidence... I won't delete again!

Wow! The pictures capture Seattle well... I love the picture of the mountain from the plane... I saw it too, but didn't have my camera.

You make me tear up all the time with your deep, soul felt words that aren't hastily spoken, but intentional and loving.

I had a great time with the girls last night... great party Gretchen!

Great post Gretchen! The pictures just make me want to visit Seattle that much more, and maybe I'll even meet my future wife there as well!

You have me dying to visit Seattle too. And I love reading about you and Jamie. You know you guys have always been our example, so much more than just friends, best Buckeye years of my life were in your living room (6 years?), having babies, raising children, family emergencies, trials, laughing, fun, countless parades, Friends Thanksgivings, National Championship... Miss you guys!

I love to read about you guys! You are an inspiration in your marriage and life. I am so glad you got away with Jamie and had a good time! Love the photos, Gretchen. Miss you!
