Happy Anniversary to the love of my life


Mark wedding

Yesterday was our anniversary and I’ve spent an entire day trying to figure out words that adequately convey how much I love and admire my husband Mark.  Its times like these that I wish I were a poet.

While we’ve only been married for 7 years, we’ve known each other for 16.  We met on a 30 day NOLS course in the mountains in Washington, and every day since our relationship has only gotten stronger.  Mark is my calm and peace, he is my music, he is my 72 and sunny.  He is my energy source, my source of confidence and purpose.  He is an amazing father to our 2 children, he’s sacrificed everything to give me the opportunities I’ve had in life.  I don’t just love him, I respect him, I admire him, I try to be a little more like him every day, and he makes me a better person.

I love you, Happy Anniversary.
