Six Happy Years
Happy Anniversary! Six years ago today, we stood in a gazebo, overlooking the ocean, in Jamaica, and our adorable Jamaican minister pronounced us husband and wife. "James and Jenn-ee-fer". A while later, I looked over at you on the beach, and thought to myself, "My husband! I love the sound of that!"
These six years haven't always been easy. We've been through the adjusting-to-each-other phase (could you please just show some excitement when you walk in the door?!), the hassle of your first house and the low life renters (the fly strip in the shower was a nice touch, huh?), the loss of our grandmothers, your parent's physical problems, a failed business attempt (so sorry about that - but I'm still a dreamer), infertility problems, colic, and torticollis! It has all made our love stronger, and knowing that you are in this crazy journey of life with me, supporting me and sharing life's ups and downs is the best feeling.
What could we possibly get each other for our 6th anniversary, Jim? I know! How about a HOUSE!! Finding our next house hasn't been easy, either, but we did it! I can't wait to make new memories in it with you and Dylan. One thing is for sure, it will be filled with lots of love.
I love you BIG TIME,
