Happy anniversary, Hubby!

Five years ago today, the man of my dreams proposed to me.

It all started with a poem on Christmas Eve that told me my gift would arrive later. I admit I was a little miffed that he couldn't buy my gift in time. :o) Over the next several days, I received more poems, all lovingly written by Chris.

It all culminated with a final poem, some heartfelt words and a lot of tears in the lobby of the jewelry store. You may not think that was a very romantic location, but I thought it was perfect. Chris insisted that he couldn't keep that ring in his pocket for very long. So he proposed as soon as he picked it up from the jeweler!

It's hard to believe how far we've come in five years, Chris. Our life couldn't be more perfect. And I can't believe we're waiting for our little one's arrival. Thank you for loving me and for choosing to spend your life with me. I love you!
