It's been a crazy time lately. Trying to get the girls ready for school. Trying to catch up on everything that piled up while I was gone. And trying to work on my revisions. It makes for a crazy time and I can't help but wonder if I'll ever be able to catch up. But in the midst of the craziness, Da Man and I celebrated our 17th anniversary. Wow! 17 years!!! We had a lovely meal out with the entire family and then came back home where, after swearing up and down that he hadn't bought me a present, I went up to my new little desk and found a little blue bag sitting on top of my manuscript.
After gaping at it in shock for a long moment, I tore into it only to find this little beauty!!
17 years and he still has the power to surprise and overwhelm me with how wonderful he is. So this is my little tribute to the Oh man who is my best friend, my greatest supporter, and my soulmate. Thank you for always being there for me through all that life sends our way. For being a great father to our girls and a wonderful husband. For never letting me give up no matter how much I whine and for holding my hand when things get rough. I am truly blessed in my life and I never forget it. Happy Anniversary!
Now, next year, there's this beautiful diamond necklace I've been eyeing... ;o)
