5th Wedding Anniversary!

So today is our 5th wedding anniversary! Five years just flew by it seems, but yet so much has happened within that time and so many changes have occurred, especially in the last year. But I still can't seem to believe its been 5 whole years. Lately I've been kind of going off on rants to anyone who will listen about how time and life are so weird. When I say that I mean it in a good way... It's just that when you're young time will not move fast enough. You're always waiting until you're 1 year older, and sometimes wishing you were done being so young. Then you get a bit older and you're wanting the hands of time to stop so you can catch up to everything. I'm constantly wondering where time's gone! But enough about this, because I could go on and on, (maybe I'll blog more about this later).
Now let me focus my sole attention to my husband Paul. He is the most awesome guy I know! Not only is he a hard worker, but he enjoys the work and especially loves to see the fruits of his labors. He's the best husband; when I say that, I mean to say that I have no complaints. Really! He's not the type where I have to ask him twice to do something or even AT ALL most of the time. He'll say, "I'm going to mow the lawn" every week and I'll say, "You're doing that again?" Or, "I'm going to work on the garden." And I think, "Wow, he's more dedicated to that than I would ever be." Anyway, I think you get the point.
Also, he is always helping me with anything and everything! Whether it's on the computer, cleaning, anything to do with Ryder, shopping, etc., he is just there for me. No ifs, ands, or buts about it for him. He has a great sense of humor, and is always teasing and making jokes and making me laugh or smile real big. He's gentle and understanding, and he's the best dad! He just loves Ryder to death, and the feeling is mutual. He is very spiritual and loves the Gospel so much.
He shares a love of traveling with me, also. We've been all over together: San Francisco, Houston, Vegas, Cozumel, Isla Mujeres, Cancun, Nauvoo, Winter Quarters, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Paris, Barcelona, Chicago....and we have so much fun together! We can't wait for Ryder to grow a love for it too.
Just thinking of him makes me smile. He is such a good, kind, laid-back, dedicated, amazing person. I couldn't have found anyone more perfect for me!
Happy 5th Anniversary, Paul! Here's to many, many more!

Love, Shari :)
