HAPPY 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY TO MY AMAZING HUSBAND!!! Looking at who we are today compared to the kids we were when we first met... it’s so crazy to see how far we’ve come together! What a joy it’s been living life with you for so many years! What a whirlwind, what a journey, what a truly incredible and epic experience it’s been! When I look at the picture of us when we first met, I can’t believe it’s possible that I found such a special man all those years ago, one that has loved me non stop, through thick and thin, that has loved being in a relationship with me for so many years, that has adored and completely embraced the experience of having children and been by our side every minute of every day. I can’t begin to express how lucky we are to have such an amazing papa in our lives. Your love and support, your friendship, your passion, your talent and brain, you’re just unreal! And you’re so handsome on top of everything.😘 You are truly the best man I could ever have dreamed of and I know it every single day. I love you beyond words husband.💋
