Happy Anniversary, Baby

Gotchu on my mi--iind. On this date 14 years ago, I walked down the aisle with my dear father to Mr. Wonderful. My own McDreamy. It was a wonderful day. He was so handsome in his tux. The most handsome man in the room. We stared into each other's eyes during our unity candle song-The Rose-the longest song in the world. We were both grinning from ear to ear. I'm sure my braces were shining from the light of the candles. I look back on my 22 year old self marrying that day and I chuckle a little. She had no idea what she was getting into. However, God is good and faithful. I married a man so opposite from me that it often makes me laugh out loud. The fact that we are so different has made our time together wonderful times of growth and ADVENTURE. We have both grown up alot and still have plenty of room to do more growing. We have both patiently tolerated those growing times and growing pains. I have all I could ever want in him. A great husband, father, provider and...more. We are not perfect-we are just perfect for each other. He has taught me the the meaning of unconditional love by showering me with it. I was a very slow learner in showering it on him-but I think I finally am making some progress.

Happy anniversary Erik!! I love you! Thank you for putting up with me for 14 years. Thank you for giving me stuff for the house instead of jewelry because you know me so well. Thank you for giving me hugs, kisses, and love without end amen. You are still my Mr. Wonderful.

You did let Erik read this one, right?

You are so gifted with words.

Sorry, I am a day late, but I send my congrats anyway!

Congratulations on 14 years!

You're officially at that point... you know, where both of you are 'used' so no one else would have either one of you?

That's what MY Eric and I say to each other. Frequently.
