Happy Anniversary

I am not back today to reclaim my position as a writer of plentiful posts. I am still very much enjoying my vacation rather than writing. This time with Arica and Braden has been amazing. It is the first time since Braden's first week of life that I have spent this much time with him. We have had so much fun.

I wanted to stop in to make a quick note. Today is my wedding Anniversary. Arica and I have been married three years. As a man that was single and alone into his late 20's I can surely appreciate the comfort and love that come with spending my life with someone.

I don't just have someone. I have "the someone." There is no doubt that she was put here on this rock just for me. No other woman could put up with my difficult and frustrating personality. She doesn't just put up with me. She challenges me every day. I am so grateful for the amount of love, patience, and understanding that she has given me.

Our meeting was a bit different. You can read about it here. From those beginnings things moved fast. The ride has not always been smooth, but it has been the best ride of my life. I am so glad that this amazing ride will go on forever.

Arica, I can't wait to continue living out every breathtaking moment of this marriage with you. I love you and Happy Anniversary!

Happy Anniversary. We're coming up on our 7th anniversary in October (3 days before our son's 1st birthday).I just realized last night that my husband and I have been together for 10 years! Time really goes by fast.

Happy Anniversary!
I am sorry to have been so neglectful lately. Most of July I have not been home and out of town. I will be home soon and back on my regular blogging schedule.
May you have 72 more glories years together or more.

That was lovely! I still get all mushy when a man expresses his feelings.

Happy, Happy Anniversary!
