An Anniversary


We celebrated our 12th wedding anniversary over the weekend. It feels really good to reach this mark and still be just as excited to be married as the day we said I do. Our marriage motto is one and done! Of course achieving this requires a dedicated effort from both of us. I just know that I'm incredibly lucky to be married to someone who always makes me feel like I hit the jackpot in the lottery. I'm not saying hubster is perfect but he's definitely perfect for me. I'm so grateful for every single day we get with each other and I look forward to growing old together like we always talk about. And yes that is the $225 wedding dress I mentioned before.

In case you missed it, we're giving away a $400 gift card!

I have been offline lately and so missed out on this. I had to comment though, congratulations on such a beautiful marriage (not many people can truthfully say that). I say it too that hubby is the perfect one for me. Here's to many many more years of feeling like you've won the jackpot!
