Happy Anniversary to my Honey! 10 years ago today we were married on a very hot day. Go figure, in July. We cannot believe that 10 years have already gone by. I'm pretty sure that seemed like forever when we were married.
I have to say that I feel like our relationship is stronger and better than it ever has been. Not that it has ever been not good, but I think it has gotten better as we've been together longer. I feel really lucky in that sense because for many people that is not the case. I think we "get" each other more than before. I understand where J is coming from and can see his point of view. It isn't just about what I think or about what I want. Sure, I still want things to go my way, but I know and understand where he is coming from which is important in a marriage.
Going through being a parent together makes me appreciate and understand our relationship even more, too. I think being parents together makes us stronger. Where I lack, he picks up and is strong and vice versa. Having the strong relationship base we have in our marriage makes being a parent that much better because we know we have each other.
We have each other. That's the most important thing. I don't care about the size of our house, the trips we take, the things we have, the places we go...all of that pales in comparison to what we have in our marriage. I panic at the thought of the day when I don't have that. The only time I see that coming is when one of us is no longer here (physically). Until then I will live in the here and now with J and thank God for every day I have with him!
What do you say about yourself? Well, I guess I'm a wife, mommy and teacher. I am blessed with a wonderful family-a husband and twin 10 year olds. I can't ask for much more than that. I love ice cream and any other dessert that has chocolate in it. Is it possible to have too much sugar in one day? I have been known to have ice cream for dinner, but don't tell my kids that! I've been blogging for about 7 years and love it. It is the perfect way to keep track of my family's happenings for me, J and the kids.
Husband, Daddy, Cook, Jungle Gym...let's see what else can I come up with? These are just of the few names J has in our family. He does everything and anything! I couldn't ask to have anyone other than him in my life. Married for 15 years, together since high school-we've been through a lot! He is a wonderful daddy to our twins and loves them so very much. They are utterly in awe of him as am I, every day.
A is our little peanut of a girl. She is full of spunk and personality. She is a little Mommy in her 10 year old self, always taking care and keeping track of her twin brother, C. Her favorite thing to do dance in her room with her door closed. She has to keep that brother out somehow! Her current favorite family game is Uno, which she is very good at! She's an artist in training, loves to ride her two-wheel bike and is a great helper around the house. She loves school, swimming, reading books, eating spaghetti and anything that's chocolate. Hmmm...who's daughter do you think she is?
C is our boy...a "boy-boy" if you know what I mean. At the current moment in his 10-year-old self, he plays catch with anyone around, with whatever ball is in season! He loves swimming, riding bikes and wrestling Daddy. He is our adventurous eater and will try anything we give him...though he doesn't always like it, but at least he tries! We love him so much and couldn't imagine life without him!
