Because i knew that i knew, and i know that i know that you are the one God made me for and made for me.
Because you looked at me like i was the most delightful thing you had ever seen.
Because when you still look at me that way, i feel like the most beautiful woman in the world.
Because you've never stopped looking at me that way.
Because walking hand-in-hand with you is my favorite place in the world, no matter where it is.
Because my mother was right when she said i'd never be bored.
Because when i'm with you, my heart knows i'm home.
I love you.  I am passionately grateful to know you as my husband.
You're my gun-slingin' super hero and my very best good friend.  
We're like peas and carrots, and i'm so glad i married you.
Happy Anniversary!


These are my two favorite wedding pictures.  The second one is a wonderful double exposure of us walking up to and lighting our bonfire (unity candle) with our tiki torches.  Just thought i would share it.

Today, we celebrated by joining family to watch the Texans beat the pants off the Redskins in overtime.  It was a scintillating game, and GSSH said he got the best birthday present with that game.  

Since we just had some chicks hatch, i loaded up about half of them and took them along for the festivities. Children love baby chicks (so do i), and i my niece and nephew especially do.  This is my beautiful niece, BrookeLyne, entertaining the chicks while everyone else watched football.  They were a very big hit, and i think they were happy to get home.

OHEMMGEE!  I almost forgot.

This is my birthday pen from my in-laws!
My picture here absolutely does not do it justice, but it is beautiful in person.  My in-laws have a lathe and carve pens out of wood and acrylic.  They're really beautiful, and i'm giving them a plug here because they just set up their own Etsy shop, SNSPens.  My sister-in-law, DeAnna, whose photographic talents i have oft praised, took very nice pictures of many of their designs for the Etsy site, so you'll be able to see what they really look like.  Check 'em out.


  1. WOW I love the pictures....... especially the one of James looking at his bride

  2. What a wonderful way to start my day. I marvel at the love you have for your hero. And he for you !


What do you think about that?
