My heart is under the sea.

Mark left yesterday for a short underway for a few months. He'll be back soon and one day is already down, so it's one more day until I see him again. In the meantime, I'm going to work on some special projects for him, just do some things to keep me busy and make time pass.

Before he left, we celebrated my 21st birthday on January 19th instead of February 19 since he won't be here. We also did an early Valentine's day. For my birthday, Mark drove an hour and a half or more to get to Warwick, RI to take me to Carrabba's, which is my favorite Italian restaurant. We had one in Charleston, but RI is the closest one here. Anyway, so we went and spent the hour waiting and then had fabulous lobster ravioli, pasta weesie and tiramasu. It was sooo good, really worth the drive!

We've been married for two years and we keep trying to get pictures taken and something always happens where we can't. This past Saturday was picture taking day :). We went to Avery Point Lighthouse in Groton and had some photos taken by a professional photographer. She will also be our birth photographer if Mark can't be here when the baby comes, as he's scheduled to be out and the boat is shorthanded, but we'll see. Here are some pictures from our shoot:

There will be more to come, but here's what the photographer sent over. I edited them and I'm pretty happy with the way they turned out. They're our first family pictures and I'm so pleased!
