Ten Years is a Really, REALLY Long Time...

Thank you for being my best friend.

Thank you for my kids, although I am a little pissed they don't look like me.

Thank you for having hair (unlike your brother).

Thank you for being driven and goal oriented, otherwise who knows where we would be now if it was only up to me.

Thank you for being understanding and for knowing me so well.

Thank you for knowing when to walk away and let me cry, and when to come back and let me cry on you.

Thank you for doing the bills and finances every month. I know that is a stress you won't let me have.

Thank you for not getting mad about that $130 in face products I bought a week ago. And if this is the first time you have heard about it, thank you again for not getting mad.

Thank you for doing the dishes, as much as you hate it.

Thank you for the last 10 years together, and here's to 10 more...

Happy 10 years!!!! WOW! It really does seem like a lifetime ago that you two got hitched! I am honored that I was a witness and a part of that special day so many years ago. And I am happy that we are still in touch and I get to share, through your incredible blog, in your daily life. Your kids do look a lot like Ray but I see you in both of them as well!! I think that Ashley's personality is all yours! (-: Congratulations on TEN!!!

Let's hope that he starts aging soon. I have a husband who is forever youthful, so I was really happy when he started losing his hair, so people wouldn't think he was my baby brother or something.

Great. Of all days I was having an awesome eye lash day, it's now ruined due to the tears you brought to my eyes.

Such a sweet, simple post. Happy Anniversary--here's to many, many more years!!

(I STILL think Ray looks like he's barely 21!! HAHAHA!!!)
