Five Years...

Wow. Time really is a fickle thing. I cannot believe it has gone so fast. Five years ago on Friday I was walking down a really long aisle on the arm of my father with the biggest butterflies in my stomach...with my future at the end of the aisle looking at me like I was the only thing around.

It was five years ago (on Friday) I married my best friend.

We have had the most incredible ride. I love him more than I can express to you in words. He makes me laugh harder, more often, deeper and longer than anyone else I know.
(Most especially when I don't want to!)
He drives me crazy with his habit of leaving clothes anywhere he is. He drops towels...EVERYWHERE! He spoils the dog, and won't eat broccoli. He's addicted to peanut butter cookies and football.

He makes me feel beautiful. He insists that I'm beautiful, and won't hear of anything less. (even on days that I KNOW I'm ugly!) He is honest, hardworking, silly, spiritual. He has been my best friend for eight years. He knows all of my dark secrets and loves me in spite of them. (can we say diet coke addiction?)

I can't believe he picked me. And I cannot believe it's been five years. We have gone through unemployment, deaths in the family, moves, crazy relatives, band failures, car failures, and everything else life has been able to dish out to us. And still I wouldn't change a minute of it. I love you babe, and here's to another 50+!!
So in celebration of my anniversary, come back on Friday (the day of!) and party with us to see an extra special giveaway that will be going on all week. You don't want to miss this, I PROMISE! Hope to see you on Friday for the linky party!
