Happy Anniversary!!

This post is dedicated to my sweet husband. One short year ago today I married my very best friend, the love of my life and the most handsome blue eyed man. In some ways it seems like just yesterday and in other ways it seems like forever ago. Our wedding wasn't fancy or expensive but it was perfect because it was the official or legal start to our future together. I will never forget the look on Clay's face as we were saying our vows...it was priceless!! And I couldn't stop smiling! It was a wonderful cold, snowy day in the mountains! I am grateful to all of the people who were there with us to share in our new beginning. I feel lucky to have had a second chance for happiness, to be in a relationship where I feel loved unconditionally and respected. Although the last year hasn't been the easiest for either one of us, I'm still glad that we endured the struggles together and are stronger because of it. I love spending every moment with you Clay even though our time together isn't as often as either of us would like it to be. Thank you for giving me strength and courage and for always encouraging me when I need it most. Thank you for being such an incredible step-dad to my children, this means so much to me. You are a great example to them and I know they love you as much as I do. I look forward to what the future holds. No matter what that is. I will be there by your side. I love you more each and every day and am the happiest girl in the world because of you. Thank you for being my husband.

"Whenever I look at you, I see all the things I always wished for in a man but never thought I'd find. It seemed to me that finding one person who could hold all those incredible qualities was just a dream... until I met you. And then, after I got to know you, I found things in you that I didn't even dream about, qualities that I didn't even know existed or how much I needed them. But now that I've seen them, I know I could never do without them... or you."

Happy Anniversary Clay! I love you with all of my heart!
