Six years have quietly come and gone. No public declarations of love (I've already done more than enough of that), no trips to Tahiti, no stress. Just quiet reflections, tenderly sweet homemade cards, and... one completely awesome surprise; a much coveted comforter:
The one question that I ask him over and over, "Why why why did you marry me?" I was so dumb as a little 19 year old girl. Really. So. Dumb. I wouldn't have married me, that's for sure. And he always answers the same thing, "I knew who you wanted to be, and I loved that you. I knew you'd get there." And while I don't think I'm "there" yet, I'm definitely not who I was back then. Thanks for seeing the potential in me, and making that risky investment, love. I hope it pays off some day. xoxo Happy A-day.

daaaaang it I was going to call you. That voice in my head was telling me but I hushed it right up. I hope you had a great day! and holy cow, the comforter is totally awesome!

and yes. It is 1:28 am while I'm posting this. A combination of dog having to go potty, me having to go potty, and cinnamon toast crunch persuaded me to venture downstairs.

I just tried to leave a comment and I'm not sure why but it must have not liked what I said. Please get my number and call me sometime. I am horrible at calling but I love to hang out. I have to admit I don't think you are a stalker. I think I might have blogstalked you first through someone else's blog. I always want to talk to you but Sunday's are just crazy and I never get a moment with the kids, plus you are in primary. I'd like to get together though and be friends. So get my number please. I would give it here but I don't want randoms calling me. Sorry this post is so long but I sometimes have diarreha of the mouth (and fingers). Talk to you soon.

Thank heavens we're still not 19-year-olds for the rest of our lives! I know I was pretty stupid! I love that you're a part of our family and you're still putting up with my brother :)
