Nine

Nine years ago today, I said I do and we did, and there couldn't be a better person in the world for me.  Dan daily lives out unconditional love and radical acceptance in our marriage (and with our kids, too!).  He loves me for who I am.  Right now.  As a am.  As I've evolved and changed, he loves me all the same.  He isn't threatened by change or growth in either of us.  In fact, he embraces it.  He encourages it. 

He's my best friend and my biggest fan.  He does stuff like this for no reason - 


When it comes to love, he's a yes kind of guy.  Yes to babies, to adoption, yes to helping those in need.  Yes to kids in our bed and in our arms.  There's a certain baby who has Da wrapped around her finger, frequently falling asleep on his chest.  He's present enough to notice and comment upon the gentle rising and falling of her breathing.


He leaves me contemplating how one human being can be so perfect.





Nine years!  I'm so thrilled, blessed and humbled to be on this journey with you, Dan!
