Happy Father's Day



In lieu of recent, tragic events this father's day will be especially poignant. The past few days I've realized how often I've take my honey for granted. I am so lucky to have Chad in my life. I love him so much and don't know what I would do if he were to ever leave our family. I want him to know that, even after twelve years of marriage, I am still as much in love with him as the day I met him.

Appreciation is key to a successful marriage, nice list Erika. It makes a mom proud to see her son doing so well in this most important arena.
