My Amazing, Beautiful, Wonderful Wife!!

"To boldly go where no man has gone before"... the inner sanctum, the society of the traveling trousers, the eclipsed twilight of dawn... the blog!! What drives any man to blaze into the frontier and attempt to conquer the unconquerable...? Insanity, of course. And I am CRAZY IN LOVE so here we go...

Over fourteen years ago, I made the most incredible decision--shocking, I know! I can't decide what to wear or eat in the morning but I knew that I wanted Erika to be my wife! Through sickness and less-sick, stupidity and less-stupidity, thin and less-thin, poor and less-poor, Erika has been my rock! I can't imagine living without her! Happy 14th Anniversary!

14 YEARS... 14 REASONS I LOVE YOU...

One LOVE... it all started with what I thought was love but now I know how little I knew and how much you have taught me about it. Thank you!
"Two" much fun! You laugh often and easily, which I love! I'm glad you find my frequent tripping so funny! :)
Three's Company! We have three kitchen tables right now, two of which are occupying my half of the garage, but I don't mind because I love that you make our home beautiful... on a budget.
Four Score and Seven Years Ago... (This is a stretch) Like Abraham Lincoln, you know how to write great (church) talks! (I told you it was a stretch! Couldn't think of anything that went with four!)
Five beautiful children! What more can I say?!
Six Pence None The Richer... I love our mutual love of music! You put up with my love of grunge and Guns N' Roses!
Seven times Seventy... You are quick to forgive me when I have been insensitive or idiotic which is unfortunately too often!
Eight Legs... I love that you get the spiders for me! Don't you like your man to show a vulnerable side once and awhile?! :)
Nine Lives... I love that you put up with my gaming! There are worse hobbies!
Ten-se... I love your hugs when I am stressed out!
7-Eleven... I want to "slurpie" you up you are so beautiful! Too ackward for public?! :)
Twelve Tribes... I love that you support our family scripture reading and prayers!
Ocean's Thirteen... I love that we share a love of the cinema.
Fourteen... Where do we go from here? I can only imagine! In the immortal words of Buzz Lightyear, "To Infinity and Beyond!"

Have a wonderful day, Babe! XXXOOO
