This month marks my husband, Shaun, and my TEN year anniversary! Our anniversary is this Thursday, so I thought it highly appropriate to share about us on this week’s blog. We were chatting last night and I told him that when we first got married, it seemed like ten years was a really long time, but in reality, it hasn’t seemed that long at all.
Let me just take a few minutes to share with you about his man of mine. Below you’ll see a *few of the photos we’ve taken together over the years. Shaun has been everything and more than I ever prayed for in a husband. He is one of the hardest working men I know. He has told me countless times that he would do whatever it takes, like it or not, to take care of me and our three kids. He has always stuck by that. He cares for me like no other, loves me unconditionally, keeps me grounded, and lifts me up. He guides me, leads me, prays for and over me. He takes initiative in everything he does, whether at work or at home. He’s incredibly smart, and outstandingly gifted. The man can rip apart a guitar and plays the drums with more soul that anyone I know. He builds and fixes, he cooks (praise the Lord!) and cleans. He stays with the kids when I need a break. He encourages me to pursue my dreams and stands by me while I do. He is an incredible father to our kids; I mean, really really incredible. There are so many more things I could say about him. Most importantly, he loves the Lord and leads us so well!
In ten years, between us, we have had:
- Three Kids
- Seven vehicles
- Two graduations
- Three career jobs (multiple part time and side jobs)
- Lived in two houses
- Had two Dogs
- Many memories
- Some losses
- Some gain
- Some heartache
- So much joy
I love you Shaun! You are my man, my love, my hero. I can’t wait to spend the rest of our lives together.
