Ten years!

Ten years ago today, I married the love of my life.  We were married at a lovely outdoor venue in Texas surrounded by our family and friends.  It was a gorgeous day.  Everyone gushed about how much fun they had and the delicious peach wine.  We had a blast dancing and never sat down.  I can't thank our parents enough for such a beautiful, special day.
We had a few rocky moments... my tiara wouldn't go into my heavily hair-sprayed hair (catastrophic, I know) but the worst was the photographer's camera broke as Tyler and I were walking down the aisle...
Right after this moment the photographer was literally pulling film out of his camera.  
Yes, we got married before digital.

But none of that matters.  What matters in on that day - I made the BEST decision of my life. 
I still wonder how I got so lucky.  God knew what he was doing when he had us both pull up at Sonic as seniors in high school.  Tyler asked me for my phone number and the next day we met at IHOP and I knew that I wanted to marry him.  I'll be honest, it was his looks that won me over  initially but he's so much more.  He has a heart of gold.  
After ten years he still makes me laugh. He still treats me like a princess. I still get lost in his baby blue eyes. He supports me in whatever I do. He might give me a hard time but I know he loves me unconditionally, for me.  He is a wonderful father who inspires our children’s imaginations and dreams.

Marriage isn't always easy.  In ten years, we've learned that.  We've had to work at it.  We've made compromises.  We've seen dark days together. But the good has far outweighed the bad.  Together bad times are tolerable and the good times are even better.  I love this man with all of my heart.

I'm blessed to be spending life with the man I love, who, knowing how crazy, controlling, and down-right weird I am, loved me enough to marry me anyway.  And best of all, he’s stuck with it for ten years!

Happy anniversary to my handsome cowboy!
