the best thing I ever said yes to...



Five years ago , this guy I was dating had this crazy idea to get married.  Not to sure of the decision, I said yes.  It turns out to be the best decision I've ever made.  Nothing tops it.  When I said yes, I got this amazing guy who has kept his promise to me to love only me, and has kept it well.  Being married to him has definately improved the kind of woman I am.  He has taught me things and has encouraged me to explore further the stuff I was just dabbling in before.  He's the first person I go to when I need counsel 'cuz he's just so dang wise.  He's brilliant, funny, tender, and more selfless than any other person I've ever met.  While he may not drink coffee, eat cantaloupe, or let me listen to country when he's in the room, he does play the guitar and bathe the kids which more than makes up for it.  During the last 5 years we've had some hard seasons, great big belly laughs, too few dates, more than enough fun, and we've grown closer than I knew two people could be.  And, we've made these two amazing babies...

What a great way to spend half a decade!
