Spoiler alert... there will be gushing.

So Tony and I celebrated our anniversary last week.  I have to be honest and say that I am completely spoiled.  He pulls out all the stops, surprises, and romance for these type pf things.  We went up to Salish Lodge and Spa for the night.  Upon arriving there were roses in our room and we were literally directly over looking a gorgeous water fall.  I was immediately sent up to the spa for one hour of bliss while my husband tended to our baby.  It was an amazing night.  The thing is I can still remember exactly how I felt the first time I saw him.  The butterflies in my stomach felt more like a flock of birds, my hands were sweating, and I could barely look at him much less speak to him.  I knew immediately that something was different.  Being the type of guy who was not at all interested in relationships, I avoided any situation which I might run into him again.  Then one day he showed up at my best friends house for a party and I spent the entire day avoiding whatever area he was in, while at the same time talking mad shit to my friends about what I would to him etc.  Then as I was leaving he asked if he could walk me to my car.  As I opened my mouth to give him any one of the plethora of excuses I had in my head, we made eye contact and all I could say was Yes.  I am so glad I did.  So here we are.  And he still makes my stomach do sommersaults.  The touch of his hand still causes my heart to flutter.  And best of all I get to witness our daughter fall more in love with him every day.  I love to just watch him with her.  The sight of my giant bear of a husband turn to mush when she smiles melts me.  I am truly incredibly grateful for you Tony.  Everything you are.  I love you with all of me... even when you step out of line (JK JK JK). 


  1. You coulda' warned a girl she was going to need a tissue!

    Beautiful in every way. Love.

  2. Liked hearing the story about when you met, gave lovely a visual.

    I have read your blog for a while but never commented. You have a beautiful family.

    Wanted to tell you Happy Mother's Day. I am a mom myself and I remember my first Mother's Day, enjoy the day and relish in all the extra attention. :O) Sounds like your husband is good at that. :O)

    1. Thank you very much! I am very excited, although I have to admit that the homemade card with the 5 month old's attempt at finger painting is absolutely my new prized possesion.

  3. Wow. What a lovely post. It makes me so happy to read about such love and devotion. My BF has passed on but I love thinking about him when reading posts like this.
