Still the One

Dear Stuart,
31 years ago today,
my daddy walked me down the aisle 
to meet my best friend
and get our married on.


Many things have happened along the way.
Your brothers have lost their hair.


We have raised three daughters,
buried two sons,
and lived life like we meant it.
 We have built a home, a business,
a farm,
and grown a family.

Some things have remained the same.
We continue to learn how to love each other
like God intended.
 You are still my best friend.
You make my heart skip a beat when you 
walk in the back door each night.
You make me laugh until I cry 
and at times,
you can still get me boiling mad.
You spoil me rotten.
You definitely make me proud.
 And the sad fact remains
 I still cannot take
a decent picture to save my arse.

Happy Anniversary babe,
I love you!
You continue to be
my favorite hair model/ fashion icon ever.
