Twelve years ago yesterday, I sat inside of a car outside of a courthouse in Arkansas with my best friend.  As we held hands, we asked God to bless our union and to be the center of our marriage and then we went inside and pledged our love to one another before God and witnesses that we did not even know.    It wasn't fancy.  It happened beside some filing cabinets.  There wasn't a special dress or flowers or guests.  We don't even have pictures.....but it was the best day and best decision of my life. 

We have had a busy day today and while I got this post started this morning before my dental appointment, I'm just now getting it posted.  We haven't done what most people do to commemorate such a special occasion.  We didn't go on a romantic dinner or take a special vacation together.  Rather, we have spent our day just being together, celebrating our friendship and love, doing the things that we normally do when we are off work and are together.  We spent the day laughing  a lot and enjoying our life.  We plan to go away this fall and we are looking forward to that.  But for today, just being together was enough.

I am very blessed.  My husband is my very best friend and there is not another person that I would rather spend every moment of my time with....doing whatever....than with him.  He will tell you that he is the blessed one....but you know what?  Because he feels that way just makes me even more blessed.  

So in honor of our love and friendship, Happy Anniversary baby!  Thank you for 12 of the best years of my life.  I would marry you again and again.
