He's not handy, I'm not crafty.
He's not good at yardwork, I'm not good at housework.
He's laid back, I'm high strung.
He's a saver, I'm spender.
He's focused, I'm scattered.
He's always late, I'm always early.
He likes to relax, I'm a busybody.
He sees the big picture, I see the details.
He thinks about the future, I think about tomorrow.
He thinks eating is a waste of time, I am always thinking about the next meal.
He's thin, I'm....pregnant.
He likes to read, I like to talk.
He loves me, I love him.
Yesterday we celebrated our 8 year anniversary. Sometimes it seems like yesterday, sometimes it seems like forever. Despite our incompetencies and our differences that keep life interesting, I can honestly say each year gets better, each day sweeter. I love our life together, and although we occassionally struggle to find common ground, I know we are always focused on the same goal. Together we strive to serve God each day, and raise our family accordingly. We've been blessed beyond belief with amazing children, family, friends and each other. Happy Anniversary, Kevin! I love you!
