Its our 21th Anniversary...

 I knew it, more than 21 years ago, he was the one for me..


He, flips my switch.
in a goooooood way.
look at him.
swoooooon.


I was digging around for old photos of us, then I was cracking up so bad I had to start taking photos of the photos..


On November 24th, the Saturday after our favorite holiday we tied the knot..



babies, but we weren't.



300 of our closest friends..egads..it was quite the event. I was crying like a baby through the whole ceremony. Nervous and not one to love having all eyes on me, and then the beautiful wedding march, it was too much for my tender little heart. Then my beautiful, handsome groom whispered the most amazing words to me..
(which will be our words alone..)



Could I look any more elated?...
Happily we lived for years together, traveling around, renovating houses, cute apartments, totally cracking up at each other along the way..
Then, seven years later, Ryan Jay came into the picture..apple of his daddy's and mamas eye..

Then our perfect Finn Patrick made us a party of 4..
Then, that awesome husband of mine gave me a "surprise 40th birthday present..."
Baby Reagan came into our lives and we are the perfect
5-some..









These are the best of days....
Why do I love him?
He works hard for his family, very hard.
He gets up the earliest, makes the coffee and gets the house going..(most importantly turns on the bathroom heater)
gets out all our vitamins and lines them up..
brings me coffee.
(all before 6:00)
I could go on, but I wont  :)

He opened his fortune cookie one night while at Chinese and kept it in his wallet for a long long time, I finally took it out and now its got a perfect place attached to our goooooofy engagement photo.
Happy 21th Anniversary honey, Its gone by soooo fast.
Thank you for sharing this crazy awesome life with me..

His hello was the end of her endings
Her smile, their first step down the isle
His hand would be hers to hold forever
His forever was as simple as her smile

He said she was what was missing
She said instantly she knew
She was a question to be answered
And his answer was I do..
<3
