I figured out why it is a bad idea to marry someone so close to their birthday. It is hard to write 2 posts about the same person so close together! No, actually it is easy to write things about my hubby, but I figure that everyone doesn't want to read gooey, mushy things about him so close together. :) But here we you can move on if you want...things are going to get gooey.

Seven Where has the time gone? So much has changed...and yet I mostly think of us as that young 23 year old couple walking down the aisle. Except when I see pictures of us from back then and look at us now. Life has been pretty good to us, and most of that is because of you. You are the one who encouraged me when I wanted to leave my job a year and a half ago when we had Bryce, even though it was going to be tough, you knew it was best for me, and for our family. Things are not always sunshine and roses but we've gotten through it. I thank God every day for our beautiful, healthy babies, for the roof over our head, the food on our table and for you, the one that works so hard for us every single day. We don't always see eye-to-eye, but how boring would life be if it were that way? I think we compliment each other in the very best way, we don't have a perfect marriage, but we bring out the best of each other.
So, here is to seven years of the best of each other.
I love you babe...Happy Anniversary!!

Today, dear join the ranks of the 30-somethings. Welcome...there is alcohol...and maybe some yourself. Most of what I wrote in my birthday post applies to you...because...well...we did all of that together. We have fallen down and picked each other up, we have laughed and cried, we have argued (oh boy have we argued :) but through it all we have walked side by side for these last 10 years. Every major life changing thing that has happened to me or decision I have made since leaving high school you have been there for, supporting me, helping me weigh out the pros and cons, reassuring me when I doubt myself, and still loving me even when I make the wrong decisions. You are my rock, you can make me laugh always. I know I went a little overboard for your birthday...but to me it was a drop in the bucket...I would give you the world if I could...because I feel like that is what you have given to me. I feel like I can do anything with you at my side. I hope your 30th is all that you dream it to be and I look forward to spending the next several decades with you.
I love you! Happy Birthday.
