The Love of my Life


Today is January the 2nd, 2008. NINE years ago today, Austin and I were married. It doesn't feel like it's been nine years. I still remember the day he came to my house the Halloween after my 16th birthday. I was grounded because of the first date we had ON my 16th birthday (a whole different story) so he brought me some tootsie rolls (my favorite candy at the time) to cheer me up. It was a total surprise and made me SO happy. Four years after that, we were married!


Even now, he still does sweet things to surprise me. They aren't TOO often, but I guess enough to keep me guessing. My favorite thing he does is make me chocolate dipped strawberries EVERY Valentines! YuM! And I don't even have to share them with ANYone, they are my very own.


I love him so much and I seriously couldn't have asked for a better husband. I know that sounds so cliche, but it's true. I know I have the best out there and I wouldn't trade him for ANYONE...(not even David Beckham!) He's my best friend and the ONLY person who really knows ME. He works SO hard and does SO much for this family on top of being a fabulous dad and a wonderful example to us all.


I love you Austin, thanks for 9+ wonderful years of being my best friend, my husband and my love. I wouldn't want to walk through life holding hands with anyone else.

Aw...so sweet! Happy Anniversary! I still remember you talking about Austin back in the day before you were together. And one distinct memory of you sitting in the church gym watching him play basketball (not sure why I remember that). Congrats and best wishes for many more happy years!

STOP IT!!! I've got a rotten cold and now you've got me blubbering like a soppy old cow.

I'm over the moon that you found each other and that Austin refused to take no for an answer, clever man that he is. You are such an (wait for it) "awesome" team and super parents. There is no doubt you two will go the distance. Happy Anniversary.

Love you both to bits.

wow... NINE YEARS!!! it doesn't feel like that long.. i've known him for like what... 11 or so years and i still don't feel like i know him as well as i should...probably because i live far away... oh well.. someday that will change and we'll all be together. but that's a tangent... HAPPY ANNIVERSARY (one day late from me).. i thought about it yesterday but figured you were all busy and stuff. you two look great.. i hope enos and i can look great at nine years. i hope it doesnt take THAT long though... i'm so scatterbrained right now.. sorry.. i'm trying to make this about you but i keep thinking about enos and i. k... have a good day... you you you. there. i'm done. (stupid me)

Jess, I love you so much. I still remember my first year in Texas. I was 14, and every time I went to church Jessica would make fun of my white socks with black trousers. I also remember when you would randomly call my house at midnight then hang up. Finally, when we were dating (i was 18 and you were 16)you did flip flops in the front lawn of your house and after every flip you would fart and after every flop you would flop. Top FIVE funniest moment of my life. You're the best. I'm not very affectionate, but you are always in my thoughts. I love kissing you good bye in the morning when you're asleep and when I get home from work. It never gets old. Happy Anniversary! Love - Austin

p.s. Janae thinks Austin is hot. She won't comment on your blog but i thought i'd let you know she's lusting over your husband. Her question to me was... "is he that good looking in person?" well of COURSE!! So yeah... that's that.

Enos said...
