Babe -

How do I begin to tell you how lucky

I am to have you in my life?
I'll start by saying what an honor it is
for me to be your wife.
I'm going to try to speak the words
that my heart wants you to know.
I want you to see what you mean to me
and why I love you so.
You're my best friend in the good times
and my rock in times of sorrow.
You're the reason for sweet yesterdays
and my promise for tomorrow.
Nobody else can know my thoughts
and touch my soul like you can.
No one can melt my heart like you do
by simply holding my hand.
With a loving glance or a tender kiss
you make my cares disappear.
Warm thoughts of you surround me
and always keep you near.
For better or worse, thick and thin,
you've been there by my side,
sharing the laughter and the tears
through life's uncertain ride.

I never thought I could feel this loved
until I became your wife.
You made this year and every year
the best one of my life.
I need nothing more from you than this-
to know you'll always be mine
And the promise of your love in my life-
until the end of time.
We don't know what the future has
in store for you and me
but this I know, without a doubt,
the best is yet to be.

I love you and I love us more than words can write. Thanks for everything!

Our tribute to Leah...

Leah, our very health conscious friend, would have keeled over and died when seeing what we ate almost every night in Myrtle. It included: peanut butter chip brownies, Edy's double fudge brownie ice cream, peanut butter sauce, chocolate sauce and whipped cream. If we did not eat that, it was because we got ice cream with the kids at Maggie Moos. Forgive us, Leah, for we have sinned! Yum :-)

Almost ready to post...

I have just finished uploading my pics - but am waiting for Ashli and Cara to veto any they do not want seen (common courtesy for girlfriends in bathing suits). I will post some pics with some of our highlights as we can!

For now - you can read Ashli's blog. She has started outlining each day with pics also...

A shout out to all the great dads out there this weekend. I would've/could've/should've posted a schmoopy message about what a great dad Patrick is - but instead we spent every second together (not on the computer) since I just got back from missing him for so long! But - schmoopiness is coming.

Weeeee're Back!

Long time, no blog. We are safely back to our Ohio house after a 13 hour trip yesterday. We were so excited to see our Daddy, but it was sad leaving our awesome beach house. We can't wait to go back!!! We had a great trip with the Pokablas, by ourselves as a family, and with Ashli, Nathan, Carter, Cara and Hailey! I will be blogging shortly about our trip - but I want to spend time with my hubby for now!!! :-)
