It Goes To Eleven

Eleven years.

Its hard to believe that time can go by so quickly. It seems like only yesterday.

Eleven years ago I was so nervous. I stood before a crowd of our friends and family with you. I listened as my father and your mother performed the ceremony. I promised to love you, to cherish you, to be with you forever. You and I became Us.

These eleven years we have shared together have been easy and difficult. They have been happy and sad. We have had our ups and downs, our disappointments and our joys.

But most of all these eleven years have been wonderful because I have been able to walk through this world with you by my side. So thank you for being you, for loving me, for chosing me. I love you.

Happy Anniversary!!!

I'm not sure if "walk through this world" was a reference to the Marc Cohn song, but if so - I just love that song!

So. Eleven years later and I'm still the luckiest guy in the world. Not only did that hot woman I saw in the corner at the chili party at law school acknowledge my existence, agree to a date, not run away screaming afterword, and agree to another series of dates, a year and a half later she agreed to marry me. Me. Doofus boy. Geek-a-zoid. And eleven years later she is still by my side. No one could wish for a better partner. So here's to the best mother, wife, and best friend a guy could possibly know.

Love,

Boo
