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.
