It's that time again! The time where I get a little sappy, brag about my husband a little, or a lot and thank my lucky stars that we've reached the conclusion of another successful year of marriage. There are days when I cannot believe it's only been a mere four years of marriage and seven together. I don't know if it's because he's all I've ever known that's 'real' and 'good'. Maybe it's because every wonderful memory I've had, he's been there to enjoy it with and every sad moment he's been there to help me pick up the pieces. Maybe it's because we've been through a lifetime of pain, whirlwinds of emotions and a lifetime of happiness and '180's' all squeezed in to the smallest of time-frames. Whatever the reason, I wouldn't have it any other way. I've said it before and it's certainly still the case; hell no it's not always roses and rainbows, it's not always smiles and 'happy pictures'. It takes work and a lot of it. I'll be the first to admit I don't always give 100% but I know that through the arguments come laughter, through the struggles come triumph, through the sadness comes happiness and every ounce of 'work' that our relationship may take some days--it's always 100% worth it if it means that man is laying next to me at night. The house will never be spic and span and he'll never understand why it's so hard for me to put something away once I've used it or hang clothes up once they've been worn, but he loves me anyway. I'll never understand how he over-thinks and over analyzes every little thing and stresses about things I would never even think of, but I love him anyway. I may not always have a home cooked meal on the table for him, but I'll make sure he's fat, happy and fed every night ;) In this chaotic world, he's my balance. Without him I know I'd go crazy and I'm pretty sure he feels the same, so instead, we go a little crazy together. Two beautiful baby girls, a miscarriage and a miracle on the way later. We've learned the hard way that things don't always go as planned, happiness doesn't come when you want it to but it does come when you need it most. I find comfort in knowing we've beaten the odds and I'm pretty sure that at this point, we can make it through anything as long as we're together. Thank you for being my constant. Thank you for loving me at not only my best but my worst. Thank you for always remaining by my side and continuing to be not only my amazing husband but my best friend. Thank you for always working so so hard to provide for your family and for always putting us first above all else. I don't know anyone else on Earth with your heart and dedication. You claim you're bad with expressing yourself but not a day has gone by that in my heart, I didn't feel your love. We may be a little screwed up but who likes perfect anyway. Here's to 100 more imperfect, magnificent years together.

Lastly, I owe everything to my favorites, Cynthia and Chris--they drove all over to pick up the rentals and hitch the trailer etc. it was truly a pain in the asssss and I'm in love with them for being so kind and generous with their time and truck!! As always, thank you to Zoe for capturing our family!!!
Tyler was in need of a nap and only had about 3 meltdowns and lasted for about 5 pictures so in other words, a complete success with a one year old ;)
She's thrilled to be a big sisterrr, can't you tell! :)
