wednesday,  may 19

it's a special day.  it's our wedding anniversary.  3rd to be exact.  i could list a hundred reasons why he made me the happiest girl the day he married me, but, i will leave you with 3 reasons that make me proud to be called his wife today.

1)  he had to hold back tears as he stood on the altar waiting for my father to walk me down the aisle.  i could tell the minute that i saw him, that the day meant just as much to him as it did to me.

2) he was my rock when adali was born.  the poor guy slept in a chair for 6 nights and took care of everything that needed taken care of.  he fought for our daughter to survive when i was too sick to.  and knowing that i was upset over the fact that we had literally nothing for our daughter back at home, he went out and bought the bassinet i had been drooling over the day after she was born.  he turned an otherwise painful day of coming home without our daughter into something very special.

3) he's wicked smart.  he had the wherewithal to wait until i was all doped up on pain medication after my c-section to have a conversation about adding a 4th (or 5th…i have lost count by now) flat screen tv to our house.  knowing i would have never agreed to the purchase, he saw an opportunity and went with it.  i, of course agreed, as i was also seeing bats flying above me and thought a tv would be fun for the bats.  now that is what i call true love.

in all seriousness, i am so very grateful to have found the man of my dreams.

j, you make my days fun and my life so much more meaningful.

and this is why i was up until 2:30 this morning…happy anniversary husband.


more than the stars and the moon combined…

your wife.
