Six Years... Six Reasons to Be Thankful


Six years ago today, Jeff and I said yup, you betcha, we do. If I had a crystal ball that day, I would've been a bit shocked at all we would go through in the first six years of marriage. It's been quite a journey so far -- one I can't imagine being on with anyone else. When I said I wanted to grow old with him, I didn't realize growing old would start so soon!

We wrote our own vows that day and I remember my words so clearly, "I will laugh with you as much as possible and encourage you to follow your dreams." The past year has been the beginning of Jeff truly following his dream of making music. Song for Lucy was the perfect start, then he kicked butt in the song-writing contest (a new holiday version starts tomorrow) and now, he's working on a song to enter into the Live with Regis and Kelly theme song contest. (Thanks to everyone who brought that to our attention.)

Celebrating this year feels a bit different because it's the first year we're not looking forward at some big change. Our family is complete, our health is good (knock, knock) and we're happy in our home and community. This year, I vow to enjoy what we have and spend as much time as we can enjoying our relationship as a couple -- and not just Jacob, Brady and Lucy's parents.

In honor of our six years, here are SIX REASONS I ADORE THE MAC DADDY.

He writes me songs...

He gives me foot rubs...

He listens to my rants...

He's devoted to his family...

He's patient, kind and supportive...

He's tall, handsome and romantic...

Happy Anniversary, Jeff. I'm the luckiest girl alive.

Jackie! It's me, Laurie Glasser :-). I ran into Melissa who gave me this Website address and told me about Lucy! I've been reading about her and your life a little and it's making me happy cry. I subscribed to this so I can see more. I love reading about it all. I'm so happy to hear and see that all is well. :-)
