You make me happy too.
July 28, 2009

You thought I was asleep.

My eyes were closed and you thought I was asleep.  You swept the hair away from my face.  You leaned in and kissed my cheek.

You told me that you love me immensely and that I will never know how much you appreciate having me in your life.  You said that you were eager to marry me, eager to begin a family with me, eager to share your life with me.  You whispered that I make you happy.

Then you kissed my cheek again, shook my shoulder and said, “Sweetheart, it’s time to wake up!“

So I opened my eyes and smiled and kissed you and we started our day.  Four hours later, we stood before family and friends in my parents’ front yard while my uncle declared us man and wife.

Happy Anniversary, Donald.  I love you with a thousand beating hearts.

** Charlotte is one week old.

    Happy Anniversary! Is Donald kicking you in the middle of the night now, telling you it’s time to nurse the baby? No? Just wait ;)

    Hope you’re doing well.

    Happy Anniversary! I am almost embarrassed to say that I just now finished reading your ENTIRE blog, from beginning to end, while sitting at work :) Not because I was bored and have nothing to do (there is plenty of work for me to be doing) but because your blog is so full of fun, life, honesty and humor. Great Job on getting me hooked :)

  27. By on July 29, 2009

    I started reading your blog by my girlfriend’s blog and since then I have been hooked. I must say congrats to you both on the birth of your beautiful daughter, now the fun begins. Your blog has to be one of the best. And Happy anniversary. Thanks for sharing your experiences with us all. And I have to say that I wish I looked as good as you did when I was pregnant. May your lives be filled always with love and joy.
