I can hardly believe it, but somehow today is our ten year anniversary! If you had told the girl in the picture that 10 years would pass this quickly, she would've rolled her eyes. But yes, somehow I've blinked and have a decade long marriage, two children, and have lived in the same place for the longest I've ever been since childhood.
I'm not great with too much sentimentality, and since we've been married, it's been a running joke that, "That's why I buy the Hallmark card--to say it for me." But in all seriousness, I could not have a better companion for life. Not only is he a thoughtful, loving, and hard-working husband who leads me to be more like Jesus, he is also a wonderful, fun dad. I'm particularly smitten with him in the evenings when I hear him reading and teaching our kiddos at bedtime with great patience. He's great at it!
So Mr. G, if ever should you read this, I salute you for sticking to me through thick and thin, sickness and health, ugly and pretty, and all the ordinary days in between. I love you!
