Nine Years Baby!

Look at how young and svelte we were!
I love this man, I've been the happiest I've ever been since I've known him.
I'm not at all a sappy romantic, but he is, and I love him for that.
He is my happiness.
There is no one in the world I would rather be with.
He is handsome, funny, smart, talented, patient, kind, hard working, generous, levelheaded, confident, and a righteous priesthood holder.
He is a better father than I am a mother. A devoted son, and faithful brother.
He helps me with my faults, praises my strengths, and balances my weaknesses.
We have always been blessed in our marriage, we rarely fight, are best friends, and united in our desire to raise children that are righteous unto the Lord.
He is an amazing provider, even on days when he doesn't feel his best, he goes to work and blesses this home by supporting us financially. He makes it possible for me to stay home with our children, and cheerfully sacrifices the things he would like to have financially which are not in reach at this time so that I can do the work that we both know I was meant to do.
He honors my station as a mother, and stands beside me in the rearing of our boys. He never makes me feel like I am 'just a stay at home mom', his sons are too important to him to ever condescend my role in their lives.
He serves the Lord contently. There has never been a time when he has not put the Lord first. He knows that our home will be blessed by giving his all to the Lord's work. He is a completely devoted servant to our Savior.
There is nothing that I dreamed for as a little girl that I did not find in Adam. What else can I say? He's the best!
