Here, fishy fishy...

My husband loves to fish.  Like loves to fish.

When we first started dating, we spent a lot of time fishing in ponds because I wanted to show him what a cool girl I was.  And I also just loved seeing him so happy and in his element.

(I think we had maybe been together for two or three years? I was so darned proud of this fish...)

But as the years have gone by (almost TEN - holy cow!), I've basically stopped going with him.  I've told myself it's because it's the way he and his dad spend time together, and I didn't want to ruin that.  But mostly, y'all?  I just didn't want to go. :)

So I'm making more of an effort to share this thing with him.  Because I can't even tell you how happy it makes him when I tag along.

So this weekend, we went out on the lake TWICE!  And it feels like God was trying to reward me for being such a dutiful, little wife, because they caught the biggest fish (and that's the plural fish) I've ever seen.

(Micah's dad - holy cow, I just adore this man!)





And maybe I did do a whole lot of this...

(Oh, Kindle, how I heart thee...)

And I captured a lot of pictures like this...


But I also reeled in a couple, myself (I've still got it, apparently), and I think I made a very good fishing assistant (even if I did backlash the line a time or two... oops).

So here's to me spending a little more time out on the water with the one I love.  Because, really, who couldn't use a few more moments like these? :)

That is quite the fish! I like the whole concept of fishing. I used to make my dad put the worms on the hook and take the fish off the hook when I caught one.

this must be something like me going hunting with my fiance, except all I really did was play on my phone or sleep in the truck. nonetheless, he loved having me awake, dressed and out of the house by 6am with an orange hat on. :) the things women do for the men in their lives. :)

My husband would fish and hunt everyday if he could. I DO want to like fishing, but I get so bored. A book/Kindle definitely comes in handy! I'd like to let it be known that if we lived in Texas and I didn't have to wear wear clothes/hat/gloves to go fishing in the summer, I'd totally go every time :)
