...Six years ago I made the best decision of my life to marry you?
And the night before the wedding, we were up until 2 am honing in on our floral arranging skills making my bridal bouquet and you might have been better at it than me? Or how in the morning before driving to the temple you took a chop saw to my platform shoes and trimmed a bit off for me so that my dress wouldn't be too short?
Or remember when we ate at Dukes on our honeymoon and they charged us for each soda refill we got? 10 glasses later....
Or when we were hiking through a river to reach a waterfall and I dropped our camera in the water and ruined all honeymoon memories?
Remember the time we went camping and threw our stuff in the back of your truck, then drove up the canyon unaware that the breakfast eggs were rolling around in our sleeping bags? Then we tried to wash the eggs off with lake water and ended up sleeping in a rotten-egg-dead-fish smelling-still-wet-from-the-lake-water sleeping bag?
Remember when we bought our first house and it was almost as exciting as having our first child? almost...
Or when we got to spend the first four years of marriage living in the most amazing place ever?
Or when you wore this silly flower crown on your head because your cool like that and confident in your manhood?
Or when you'd take me to sporting events and didn't care if all I was doing was watching the cheerleaders or asking you dumb questions like what's a penalty flag?
And I still loved you even though you looked like the muffin man? and you still loved me with my shorts pulled up to the moon!
Or remember how smart we were to go to Costa Rica before we had kids? And how you surfed some pretty narly waves and how we almost got abducted in San Jose because we were relying on my poor Spanish skills?
Or the year we decided to get really into Halloween and had to squeeze those ping pong balls on our eyes the whole night?
Surely you remember the time you made me the happiest girl around after finding out we were pregnant? And the silly spastic dance I did around our tiny apartment waving the test around?
Remember the joy we felt when our first one arrived? Then we got scared and he cried A LOT and you sang him primary songs while I dialed every hospital hotline for advice at 3 am.
Remember how PRO we were with our second? And how it felt to have a family of four?
and to think we've got a lifetime ahead of us so that in 50 more years we can look through our tattered photo albums and still say fondly...
