Thank you for #11


Today is Rick and my 11th wedding anniversary.

I wrote a long story of the wedding here and here.
I couldn't write it again much better than that.

So today I celebrate my husband, 
without whom this partnership wouldn't exist.


Thank you
for laughing when I'm not funny
and saying, "It'll be OK"
when I feel sad.


 Thank you
for taking care of me when I'm sick
and putting up with the mood I'm in when I AM sick.


Thank you
for being the best friend ever,
sharing common interests
and common stories.


Thank you
for listening to me talk for-ev-er about beads
and not falling asleep.


Thank you
for greeting me each day with, 
"Hey, gorgeous!"
when I don't feel that way.


Thank you for 11 years.
Thank you.

  41. What a glorious bride! I went and read your wedding posts. That is what a wedding should be. Personal and meaningful.

    I love the flowers you chose. They show your color mixing abilities and the addition of the handkerchief made them that much more special.

    The picture of you seated and looking like you're about to do something really fun and silly is priceless. That seems to me to be essential Lori.

    Congratulations on 11 and many more to come!
