March 23, 2001-12

Eleven years ago today, on a much chillier afternoon! I said I do to this man who turned my world around, upside down, and showed me how real love is supposed to be. It's not always been easy. We've had our share of arguments and struggles. We're on our fourth major move--he likes to go in these 600 mile plus jumps...from Butler to Ohio to Tennessee to Butler and now on our way to Massachusetts. It's most certainly never been boring. It's been downright hard to hold on sometimes. But it's been worth it every step of the way.

We've raised our baby boy who is so not a baby anymore! And his baby girl is a most beautiful young woman with a world of promise awaiting her. We lost my dad and younger brother, his older brother. We've gained grand-nephews and nieces with another due in June! I so better be there!! And so many incredible friends along our multi-state journeys...Our life has been good. Very, very good.

Today he flies home to visit for the weekend. He's been in Massachusetts since I had my surgery at the beginning of February and we didn't think we'd be getting to see each other again this soon. So this is an unexpected, cherished anniversary gift to be sure! I'm crying just thinking I get to see him today!! Just a few more hours until I can wrap my arms around his neck and kiss him long....

Bill...I love you a thousand times more than I did that day eleven years ago! I'm so happy and thankful you came into my life when you did and just as thankful for all of our adventures over the years. What began as a total crazy whirlwind is still a crazy whirlwind sometimes, but I wouldn't change a minute. You make me laugh and smile when I feel like all I want to do is hide and cry. You are my best friend and my soul mate (you know I had to throw that in there!) I LOVE YOU!!!


  1. Happy Anniversary to you and your man! So glad you'll get to be together. :)

  2. Better than any romance novel because I actually know one of the characters. And my dear, you are such a wonderful character. Happy (belated) Anniversary! ! May the love you two share last a lifetime.
