9 years

Not everyone believes in soul mates. That one person your life gravitates to, and you gravitate to. The one that makes things perfect, that make every moment your together better, even the hard moments are more bearable when they are there. The one that feels like the other half of you. But I do. I believe in soul mates, and I believe I was lucky enough to find mine.  Not only did I find that soul, but I got to marry him. 

We've had our ups and downs, our offs and ons, and we will continue to have them.  We will continue to argue and disagree, but we will also continue to try to not let those disagreements and arguements crumble us.  We will put more effort into our marriage then into our fights.  Especially if he always lets me win. 

Not only is Robert my soul mate but he is my best friend. He is the first one I want to tell when something good has happened.  When something bad has happened I want him first - to talk to, to be comforted by. He is the one that can always make me laugh even when I don't want to, always make my anger lessen, and my sadness and tears go away. He frustrates me and annoys me, and loves me and comforts me.

9 years ago today I married my best friend, my soul mate, the love of my life, and while it has been hard at times I am so happy and thankful for every day, month, year we get to spend together.

Here's hoping for not just 1 more year, not just 9 more years, but for more. So many more I can't even decide on a number to put here.

I'm so excited to think of growing old and terrorizing the nursing home together or maybe we'll make the kids take care of us.

I love you Robert! 

(I completely refrained from embarrassing you by posting one of my nicknames for you. Be proud of me, or I'll say it.)


  1. In this day and age that is a major milestone. Uncle Len and I have been married for almost 27 years. Can you believe it. I too believe my hubby was the one meant for me and am so happy I found him. He makes me laugh. Happy Anniversary to you both and may you have many, many more. Love you both.


Give me some LOVE!
