Happy Anniversary, Babe

My boy Jake and I celebrate ten years of marriage today. Tomorrow, we go on to year number eleven, and I must say I’m looking forward to it.

I love being married to Jake. Here are some of the many reasons:

-When I am around him I feel at peace. I always have since the first time I met him.
-He is very principled, and while at times this can be a little tiring, it shows his enormous amount of integrity, which I respect greatly.
-He is loyal, and I truly have never questioned his love for me.
-He is thoughtful and pensive and would rather dive deep than float on the surface.
-He is funny.
-He helps me look at things through new eyes.
-He loves the outdoors.
-He buys me chocolate milk, and quite frankly, I enjoy that more than when he buys me flowers (which he does, too).
-He lets me snuggle.
-He is quite beautiful. (I like to look at him, okay?)
-He balances me out, which is definitely hard, and sometimes I fight it (okay, most of the time), but it has made me a better person, and I’m sure it will continue to make me a better person in the future.
-He makes me feel beautiful. Seriously, I used to have really bad self esteem, and I would credit the turn-around largely to him—I chose to believe him.
-He is a great father.
