We've Been Together FOREVER



(While you read this, click on "Devoted to You" on my playlist...it'll add a little something. Plus, it was "our song" at our wedding--the Everly Brothers version.)

Every time I give my hubby a card I always try to think of something loving and thoughtful to say. Something real, a little playful and not too, too serious, but enough that he knows I mean business. But I've noticed from time to time that when I give him a card, the first thing he says when he opens it up is..."Oooooohhhh...words." He's being funny, but he's said it enough now, that I'm like,"hmmmm...," cuz I tend to write novels in my cards. I tend to go on. I'm wordy, what can I say? There's a wanna-be writer trying to break out. And the boy gives me a lot to talk about.


Well, today is our 12th anniversary! We've actually been together 15 years now. So what I want to say to him is...

Happy Anniversary!
You make me happy. The end.

Happy Anniversary - found you via SITS!! Am loving your blog! I will be married 13 years in November - that is wonderful you still do card with WORD in them. . .I'm trying to remember when mine went from lots of words to a few sentences to a couple of words to just Love or Love Always or sometimes xoxo. . .

Congrats on your Anniversary and on your SITS day!! I love to see happy people. We just celebrated our 14th in May. Wow where has the time gone. as for writing I have lots of ideas pop into my head all the time but putting it down on paper it gets all mixed up and I lose the thought.
