Last night we went out and celebrated our 12 year wedding anniversary. We had dinner at PF Changs followed by Starbuks and a nice evening stroll around Utica Square. The kids were all gone on over night visits so it was nice to not have to worry about rushing home. We had the BEST time laughing and remember 'back when' we first met. I still remember it like it was yesterday. There I was coming down the escelator at the food court of Eastland Mall...just wanting to get my drink refilled and low and behold....the most georgous guy I had ever seen was behind the counter at Subway. I almost couldn't ask for my refill. My heart was beating so fast and I'm surprised I got the words out. Last night, Chad asked me...."How long had you been coming for refills on your drinks before we actually talked?" I remember it only took me 2 times to see Chad and I spoke to the manager who happened to be his roommate and well....it was all downhill from there. The first night in meeting me....he gave me the most beautiful rose ever....to now...having a wonderful marriage and 3 beautiful children. It's all I ever wanted and God gave it all to me. We're so opposite that it's sometimes hilarious. It's a wonder how we ever managed to end up together. We've been through some pretty rough times over the past 12 years, but we've survivied. I can't begin to tell you what it's like living with the man of my dreams. He loves me enough to put up with me and all my stuff that I go through. He's a great father and a wonderful friend. He sees me when I'm ugly....and still says I'm beautiful. He knows all my faults and looks past them. When I am weak and fall short....he is always strong...and picks me up. He is my protector, my lover, my husband, my friend and I know we will spend eternity together. And still...that won't be long enough. I love and cherish him....now.....forever.....ALWAYS!

That is just so awesome, Bunny. I can't wait to find someone that makes me feel the way your husband feels about you, and you about him.
