Today marks our nine year anniversary!!  We had a relaxing getaway and nice celebration last weekend in Dallas.  And thank you all for the sweet wishes last week!

Mr. S is my best friend.  Like a fine wine, he keeps getting better with age!  He is my rock and my soul.  I love you Mr. S!

This is a picture of us on our wedding night.  {Shhhh!  I snuck in a picture of him!}  Although it’s not the best picture of me, I love it.  I laugh at myself because I’m holding a cracker!  Mr. S constantly teases me because I’ve imperfected a lot of great pictures of us with a piece of food in my hand.  I love my food and usually have a death grip on it!

NINE things I love about Mr. S:

  1. He is my total opposite!  He loves climbing, and I’m afraid of heights!  The list is long… It used to drive me crazy, but now I embrace it.
  2. We have known each other for over half of our lives, and we still learn new things about each other!
  3. He loves me for me.
  4. He is a neat freak which keeps me in check.  When left to my own devices, the house looks like it’s been hit by a tornado!
  5. He is a LEFTie!
  6. He is a “talker” and social person.  {Naturally, I tend to be more quiet and a homebody.}
  7. He tells me that he loves my cooking!  {This is very sweet of him!}
  8. One day when we have children which will hopefully be soon, he will make a wonderful father!
  9. He is my best friend.  I mentioned it before, but he listens to me and is supportive.  I am a better person because of him.
Hope y’all are having a fabulous week!  And click below to enter the eShakti giveaway
