ten things

Yesterday when Soulemama posted her ten simply good things, I thought that would be a fun way to share ten good things that are happening in my world right now. But as today is the 6th anniversary of the day that Paul and I married and merged our families, I decided that ten things about us and our life together would be even better!

  1. 4 kids, 2 by birth and 2 by marriage, all 4 amazing and I'm blessed to call them mine
  2. a husband who does the dishes every night
  3. someone to make me laugh all.the.time.
  4. a husband who makes me coffee every morning
  5. someone to listen to one of my many "plans"
  6. a partner who thinks I'm crazy for wanting to take 4 kids to London or Alaska, but gamely helps me manage the craziness
  7. a daddy who can roughhouse with the kids one minute and then recite poetry with them while they curl up in bed the next
  8. someone who will drop everything he's doing at a moment's notice if I merely suggest that I'm in the mood for sweet potato fries from Finnigan's Wake
  9. an amazing husband who will send me off to camp or classes and stay home with the kids for a week at a time and make it seem effortless
  10. someone who has been with me through thick and thin, laughing and crying, sunshine and rain for 6 years now and still thinks I'm the most beautiful person in the world and the most fun to spend time with
I love you, Paul!


  1. awwww, and you forgot he is the best gift giver husband I have ever met. serisouly, he should teach classes in thoughtful gift giving!
    happy anniversary!

  2. beautiful. i can say many similar things about my own dear love. congratulations on your anniversary!

  3. Ok, this is just too sweet :) I love BOTH you guys. On another note, number 8 is my fave. I'm forever grateful to the same someone, who opened my eyes to sweetpotatoe fries from Finnigan's. I still remember that first time...sitting in your living room with a whole container all to myself. T'was a beautiful day.


I love to hear what you think!
