Eight Years

On June 2, 2001, I married my best friend. (Cliche, but so very true.)

Eight years and this....

...plus this...

...and this (oh my) later...

...we are still crazy in love, committed, and loving this ride.

I found this waiting on me this morning (along with a Starbucks that is long gone). My husband knows me so well. He said he was the only person in Target when the doors opened and felt like a dork buying girl stuff. It just has to be true love.

In all honesty, (get ready for anniversary mush) I feel like all the years of my life that I spent feeling alone and unworthy were wiped clean the day I met Matt Slaughter. Not since that day have I felt unprotected or unworthy or unloved. If ever a real-life hero existed, Matt is that to me. (I told you to get ready.) So, Happy Anniversary, Matt. You really do have mad skills.

Happy Anniversary! I think God pats himself on the back when he sees the two of you, and then He smiles when He thinks of how He blessed your lives with your little angels. I know I have told you before, but you bless me, Angela, you bless me!!!
