Nueve Anos

Nine years of marriage might sound insignificant when compared to ten. Nine years is still a lot & I love a reason to celebrate & reflect. As a fan of John Keats, I thought I would write a public declaration to my partner. It's no 'Bright Star,' but allow me to indulge my inner romantic. This is for Baby D.

My "Top 9 List"

1. You understand me completely - for someone such as myself, this is no easy feat.

2. You pick up my slack - when I am not cutting it, you come in and step it up for me.

3. We laugh at the same things - however ridiculous, I am thankful for our thousands of inside jokes.

4. You are a hard worker - you've helped give us an amazing life.

5. You gave me my kids - enough said, they are the best.

6. I trust you - a lot of people don't have this - that makes me very sad, as it is our base for everything.

7. You are right - when I question things, which is often, you are right -you've never steered me wrong.

8. You are there without question - whenever I call, baby you roll up - just like Wiz

9. I love you more than ever - I honestly didn't think I could, but alas, I love you exponentially more.

For two fools who rushed in, it looks like some things are meant to be. Cheers to 99 more!


  1. Happy Anniversary to you both and many more to come!

  2. Happy Anniversary! May you have many more wonderful years together!

  3. Great Blog. Happy Anniversary tomorrow and many more. You are a
    fine couple and a lovely family too. Much love to the four of you from the two of us. Grandma & Granddaddy

  4. So sweet! Happy anniversary to the two of you and many happy returns!

  5. I remember that day! I didn't actually see y'all exchange your vows, cause I was downstairs doing what your Mama had asked of me. But it was a day of joy for me within a couple of years that holds much sorrow in my memory! Thank you for letting me be part of your day! Happy Anniversary, y'all! You know I'll love ya forever and always!!!
