The peanut butter to my better half

It's hard to believe that almost eleven years ago, we were gathered with our closest family and friends in a beautiful exchanging of vows. This guy is still the peanut butter to my jelly, my favorite pair of sweat pants, my best friend,my better half and I love him more today then ever. I couldn't have imagined being happier then I was when he made me his wife, then I became a mom to our three awesome kids and that is when my life truly began. I love this man and am so thankful all those years ago we met and he liked this crazy wild girl. He saw past the masks, straight to my heart and saw in me what I never saw in myself, his love was proof to me that God was real and God's love was now something tangible and visible for my heart to see.  For the first time in my life I felt completely safe and my trust was easy to give because I knew he understood the value placed on it. The past eleven years has been filled with ups and downs, so much joy and tears but today I am more thankful then ever it’s this man I get to spend my ordinary, simple and sometimes crazy life with. He believes and calls out the very best in me. My world is better, largely in part to this gentle giant that I am navigating this beautiful life with.
