Happy Anniversary

Seven years ago, on October 11, I was your typical jittery, nervous bride. The day I had waited my entire life for, was here. I would marry the man that I loved with every beat of my heart, every ounce of my being. He made me smile, loved me when I needed it most, and gave me everything I could ever dream of and more. A lot has changed in thirteen years, mainly our waist size... but who cares, we're happy! :)
Seven years as his wife, but thirteen years together. I've spent almost half my life with him and I'm still proud to stand by his side and be his partner. He's my best friend, my rock, the one I laugh with the most, the greatest Dad, a wonderful provider, and patient. I thank God for each characteristic that Travis brings to our relationship. We're opposites, but we work.
The past seven years of my life with him have been nothing short of wonderful. God has blessed us with two beautiful, healthy, precious boys. I have my look alike, he has his. The life I'm living is the one I dreamed of as a little girl. I'm not just saying that, it's the whole hearted truth. I have always dreamed of being married, having babies and staying home to be the wife and mother I feel God has put me on this earth to be. I have Travis to thank for helping to make all my dreams become a reality.
I love you. I still love the way your hand feels in mine, the way you comfort me on the days I need it most. I cherish watching you and the boys play, hearing the giggles coming from the other room. Your a wonderful husband and father. Thank you for making every dream I  ever dreamed, become a reality. I look forward to many, many more years together as your wife. I look forward to watching our boys grow up (and even a baby girl, come on...)!
I pray that God will continue to bless  our family and may our love for one another never die but become stronger with every day and year that passes. You are a blessing in my life and it is my prayer that each day God helps me to become a better wife to you. I love you with all my heart and soul.  Forever and always yours.... Jen
