Cheers to 10 Years!
Ten years ago today Frank and I got married! It seems like yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time. I remember the day vividly. I was so happy. I refused to let anything upset me on such a special day. What I remember from that day is fun, family and knowing it was forever.
The past ten years are filled with so many memories. From the first day we met (that was 15 years ago) to the day her proposed at Yankee Stadium to the day we walked down the aisle. We have had lots of firsts together. First home, first dog, first, well, first three babies. We have been truly blessed to find each other and have the opportunity to create such memories.
Are there days when I might want to kill him? You bet. Are there days where I might totally drive him nuts? Yup. But what I know is at the end of each day there is no one else I want to be next to. We have been through a lot in 10 years. Marriage itself isn't easy. It takes work and effort. When you add on some special circumstances, well it can sometimes be a recipe for disaster. For us, that has not been the case. We have met our challenges head on and never ever questioned the reason behind them. We make a great team because we approach things very differently. We balance each other out when we have to face a challenge.
I still think he is funny. I still thinks he suffers from OCD and won't admit it. I still think he's handsome. I still enjoy spending time with him. I still look forward to him coming home at the end of the day.
I have learned so much about him in the last ten years. Yes, I knew him for five years before we got married and I thought I knew him. I have learned he is even a better father than I thought he would be. I have learned he is an even better best friend than he was when I married him. I have learned he would do anything for me and our kids long before he would do anything for himself. I learned he is the most unselfish person I have ever met. I have learned he is the hardest working man. I have learned he is a rock in a crisis. I have learned one little red headed girl can turn him into a huge mushball and apparently there are different rules for boys than a Princess....
So, it hasn't been all easy and all fun and games but the good days outnumber the not so days and I know even on the not so good days there is no one else I would rather be spending the day with.
