happy, happy, happy

Anniversary to us.
It has been 9 wonderful, emotional, lovely, beautiful years. I can't believe I've been married that long. I joked to him last night that "nine years is the longest I've ever been with anybody" and, of course, "we have been married 5 times longer than your last marriage", which he really appreciates me bringing that up.

Matt, I love you!
Here is a list of reasons why I am so happy to have you as my husband...
*you are an amazing father...your girls love you!
*you tell really dumb jokes...even though I roll my eyes at you about 90% of the time, it's who you are.
*you have super thick hair,although its grey and prickly now, I can imagine that it had lots of body and was beautiful when you were younger. I hope that Sarah inherits it and not my straight thin hair.
*your earlobes. I love to pull on them. I know you love it too.
*you put up with my moods. I don't know how you can stand it, but you do.
*You provide for our family. It may have taken a few years, but we are happy.
*You bought me a house. It's small and it has it's quirks, but I LOVE it.
*We make beautiful children. I hope to add a few more to the mix...but not too soon.
*You are like a big teddy bear.
*You call me everyday to see how I am doing, even if it's for 2 seconds because a customer showed up.
*Your knowledgeable. Your full of useless information. Brinley loves it. She can ask you anything and you have an answer for her.
*You love the Gospel. I have learned a lot from your Gospel Principles class, more than I thought I would.
*You would do anything for me.
*You like to take drives to nowhere. We often do this on Sundays, probably to keep you from taking a 4 hour nap.
*You watch the girls so that I can take a bath and have some alone time. It doesn't last long with Brinley, but I still get a little time to myself.
*you don't complain. you will eat whatever I make and let me decorate however I want.
*Your easy going. Your happy to just be with family. You don't need a lot of excitement all the time, just like me.
*You love Spokane. It's home and we love it here.
*You work hard. I don't get to see too much of you, but I know it won't always be that way.
*We have the same goals. It's nice that we want the same things in life.
*Laughing in bed late at night. Remembering things in our life.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Hopefully we can get a date in this weekend.
I LOVE YOU!

You are lucky to have him, and he's lucky to have you. You are made for each other and I am glad to see you are so happy. I too used to appreciate those long drives to nowhere with Matt...lots of great conversation and good music. Here's to a deliriously happy eternity together...you two deserve it!!
