Nine

Top nine reasons my life is enhanced nine years later…

 

9. I now have more patience than I’ve ever thought myself capable.

 

8. I have two beautiful daughters of my very own.

 

7. My “what if” ways have blossomed into “then we’ll just” ways

 

6. I feel “complete”.  I’ve got my perfect family.  Loving husband?  Check.  Terrific kids?  Check.  Sweet dog?  Check.  Mortgage?  CHEEEEAAACK.

 

5. I have never felt more beautiful.  (Though my exterior may disagree, I certainly feel more beautiful on the INSIDE.)

 

4. My wits have never been sharper.  (They’re a must for survival around these parts.)

 

3. There is never a dull moment in my life.

 

2. I feel secure.

 

1. I get to do some pretty awesome stuff with a pretty awesome companion.  Vegas, here we come, Baby!

 

 

Happy 9th Anniversary, honey!  Marrying you was one of the best decisions of my life.

    What a feat; hope you have many, many more together!

    And, the most recent photo of my husband and I together is probably when my son was born 19 months ago…

  2. Happy Anniversary!

    Photo of me and Bill? Can’t remember the last time one was taken of “just us” without kids.

    Have a GREAT time in Vegas! : )

  3. Wonderful! You are just splendid, and you always have been! That wedding photo is /awesome/, and I hope you guys have a great vacation and 9th Anniversary celebration.
