5 years!


Today Jared and I have been married for 5 years. That is hard to believe. I remember our wedding day like it was yesterday. It was such a beautiful day. I remember waking up after the couple of hours I could sleep, and being so excited. I remember all the girls getting  ready in the church parlor we had so much fun. I remember how nervous I felt right  before I walked down the aisle. When the doors opened and I heard the music and saw Jared’s face I cried. Not just teary eyed, the full blown ugly cry. I just couldn’t help it. I knew it would happen. I cry at stranger’s weddings, so it was a fact I would be hysterical at my own. After the ceremony, I think we took a million pictures. Then, we went to the reception, where I literally danced my booty off. I remember being sucked in my dress so tight, that when I danced for hours on end, I thought I would pass out. 🙂 I have never had so much fun.

I am more in love with Jared today than I was 5 years ago. At that time I didn’t know that was possible. I thank God everyday for my wonderful husband, who has given me 2 beautiful children (and hopefully more in the future) that I couldn’t imagine life without.  He is an amazing father to them.

Thank you Jared for being my husband. Thank you for loving me. Every part of me. The good the bad and the ugly, and lord knows there is lots of ugly. 🙂 You are an amazing man and I know I don’t tell you that enough. Thank you for being a hands on daddy to our babies. Gabrielle and Cooper are very lucky kids. I know that we are the only two people in the world could tolerate each other, and God definitely had you picked out for me. I am a very blessed woman. I love you more than life itself, and look forward to growing old with you. Jared James, you are my everything.
