This is our 11th (I think?!) valentine’s day together. We met the first week of my freshman year of college. It does NOT feel like it’s been that long, but it’s hard to remember life without him too! I felt like taking a little walk down memory lane today…
first buckeyes game together at the shoe.
first time we saw each other after becoming long-distance my junior year… we look downright giddy don’t we?
with my handsome groomsman – I had just had knee surgery 2 days before this but it didn’t stop me from “dancing” the night away with my date!
finally – we were wed. 2006.
honeymooners in Riviera Maya
and then we started a family… this is a few weeks before two became four!
first family picture – a couple of weeks after the boys were born & we could finally get them close to each other with all the wires.
and now… love him more every day.
Happy Valentine’s Day! I am so incredibly grateful you’re mine today and every day. I won the jackpot getting to be your valentine for life–seriously. You are a better man than I ever could have imagined–more loving, caring, helpful, generous, hilarious, kind, loyal, and humble than I hoped for. I don’t want to take you for granted because I know you’re one of a kind–and that I am ridiculously blessed to have you.
I love that you… constantly make me laugh, even at my own expense. are raising our boys to be real, godly MEN and giving them a great example. know me better than I know myself. don’t put up with my junk all the time but push me to be a better person. are so committed & loyal to your friends–your guys AND their families. push yourself to be “all that you can be” (don’t finish that sentence… 😉 ). still write me love notes in a journal. are such a hands-on, involved, loving father. are spoken so highly of by co-workers, friends, and family. are truly my favorite person in the whole wide world.
I am so excited to spend today with you and our boys–just being together and enjoying one another. I am one lucky lady to have three amazing valentines!
I love you,
