May 15, 1999

Today marks our ten year wedding anniversary - somedays it feels like much longer and other days it feels like the first day we met, but we always wonder where the time has gone. I think we both would agree that we have only gotten better with time.

I love so many things about Chad (too many to list), but the one thing I love the most, since the day I met him, is the way he makes me laugh - even at the most unsuspecting moments, he can get me smiling. The best way to describe our marriage is "fun". We have a blast together - even when I am rolling my eyes at all his bad (and sometimes inappropriate) jokes, I could not live without the fun we share.
I love Chad above all else - we are the foundation of our family and if we are strong our family will be too. To this day, I still rush home everyday from work to see him and still smile when I see him from across a room.

People have told us that they admire us as a couple for what we have been through as we continued to thrive and grow stronger - for us, this is what we signed up for from the start, all the good, the bad, and the ugly - this is nothing to admire - this is what marriage is all about... and no matter what life throws at us, we find our safe place with each other.

...and people told us that marriage would be tough...ha, we showed them...
My life, my love, my everything...I love you, forever and a day.

Congrats to you! We too have had a very fun and easy marriage. Not easy in the sense of not facing some pretty big challenges, as you have. But we have faced them together and they have brought us even closer together. It's so nice to really enjoy just being together. I'm so happy for you. Celebrate! Hopefully it won't be too many more months before you can celebrate the addition to your family! God Bless you!
