10 things, part II

Part II


To have and to hold, in sickness and in health... and quite honestly the rest is a blur. Eight years ago I repeated vows similar to those words. Faintly hearing what the minister was saying, I was preoccupied with looking deep into the eyes of the man that I loved with all my heart, the man I chose to be my husband. Even better? This man asked me to be his wife.


Out of nowhere on a beautifully sunny day in March(25th) he drove us to the Indiana Dunes State Park. It was at this same place I knew I had fallen in love with him some several months before when taught me how to skip rocks into Lake Michigan. Once again, the butterflies began after I realized he just pulled a ring out of nowhere. This man, the man who had become my friend, my lover, my favorite person in the whole world was asking me to be his wife. We were married 13 days later on April 7, 2000.


It was on this day that the second thing that I love about my life, my husband, came to officially be.

In eight years we have seen the highs and the very dirt bottom lows, but I can proudly say that we made it through, together. That, my marriage, my partnership with this wonderful man is one of the greatest feelings in the world for me.


As my best friend I love the moments we laugh till it hurts, as my partner I have memorized every wonderful part of him and as my husband I treasure and keep with me every “I love you”.he has even spoken.


I'm proud to be married. I'm proud to say we made it when others would have given up. I am so very, very proud to say that we chose each other and that Mr. Crookedeyebrow is one of the most important parts of my life.



Mr. Crookedeyebrow, I love you. I love you more than I ever really thought imaginable. (You are telling me to come to bed right now and I honestly lost my thought. )Babe, you and JC are my world, my two favorite people in the entire world. Thank you for loving me, thank you for teaching me, thank you for asking me to be your wife and making me worth fighting for, but most importantly, thank you for being you.



Wubba you
