Make's My Monday - Dear Hubby Style

Linking up with the lovely Cheryl at Twinfatuation! Thanks so much Cheryl for letting me play along! Happy Monday everyone!!!

Tomorrow, Tuesday the 22nd will be my 14th wedding anniversary! Happy Anniversary to the BEST daddy and husband in the world! Todd and I always knew we wanted children we just didn't know when. We were married for 8 years before we decided it was time to grow our family from 2 to 3. Never in our wildest dreams would we have thought the next 3 years would be the hardest 3 years of our life/marriage. We were just like numerous others that were naive to think getting pregnant was the easy (& fun ;-)) part of having children. Boy were we wrong. It's kind of
funny to think of how much money we spent over the prior 10 years preventing something that a
miracle would have had to happen to occur. The first year of trying was fun and adventurous!
We weren't to worried just anxious. Every month AF came it beat us down a little more every month Finally we decided to get help. Todd was always my rock. Nothing ever bothered him. He never had any doubt we would be parents someday. Here we are 6 years later with beautiful 3 year old twins! I couldn't (and I wouldn't) have done it without him. Thank you Todd for being my rock through the most difficult
time of our life's! We have been through a lot and I am sure we have a lot more to come, but
there is no doubt in my heart we can get through it together! Now here is why my husband
totally makes my Monday!

It took him 7 days to build this fort-swing set for Molly and Luke. He worked all weekend and every evening until it was done. I never heard anything other than excitement to get done, so he could show it off to his kids!

The joy I see in his eye's talking about his children is priceless! There is no doubt in my mind he would do anything and everything for them. I like to think nobody could love them the way I do, but I think he would differ. I wouldn't want it any other way!

My family is beautiful in my mind! That's all that matters!

We celebrate our 10th next month. We plan to take a weekend away at a winery B&B. We've only been gone one night before so we are excited to get an entire weekend to ourselves in one of our favorite places!!!

Happy Anniversary! Your post brought tears to my eyes also. Isn't is wonderful to have someone so special in your life. My husband and I have been married for 4 years this year, but have been together 18 this August. We had 3 kids before we were married 2 years and I too wouldn't have wanted to do this with anyone else! Anyone with a special someone intheir life is lucky!
