Four years ago today, I married my best friend. I know that sounds cheesy, but in our case, it is totally true. Here is a wedding day photo:
I look at those faces is the photograph, so full of life and of hope. Not a day has gone by since October 25, 2003 that I have not felt thankful for the seemingly random occurrences that brought Bryan and I together. Now I look at our family, at Jonathan and the incredible life we have created for him, even at Arthur and the contribution he has made to us as a family.
The concept of a soul mate is a bit hokey to me, but I have truly found in my husband the person with whom I was meant to spend my life. Bryan complements my strengths and is the perfect balance to my weaknesses. He gets me like no one else does. I had no idea when I took a position at the Commonwealth Attorney's office as a law clerk in May of 2000 that I was making a decision that would change the course of my life. I am so happy that I made that decision; what I thought was a career move turned out to be more than I had ever imagined.
So Bryan, if you are reading this, and I suspect that you are, please know that I think you are incredible and I thank God every day that you are willing to put up with all of my idiosyncricies and that you accept me for who I am. You have given me some amazing gifts, the most important of which is our son. I truly love you with all of my heart and I cannot imagine my world without you in it. Happy anniversary and I hope this is just but the early stages of many more happy years to come.
