Personal Note: Ten Years of Support and Love

Today marks my ten year wedding anniversary. It was a day that changed my life in more ways than I could have even imagined. When Justin came into my life one year before, I knew I had found the man of my dreams. The first time he wrapped his arms around me in a warm hug I knew I found a safe place and my home. He is my everything and my eternal companion.

Our life together was an adventure from the start. I already had a son so we didn't get those free spirited early years of marriage like so many newly weds. Instead we went from dating to instant family. However, even today we wouldn't have changed a thing. It was because of this my life took another turn and I started down the road to publication. I left my life in the fashion/buying world and decided to become a stay-at-home-mom. To raise a family and find something I could do while raising my children. I never would have guessed back then it would be writing and later a blog talk radio host, president of my local writing chapter and an award-winning published author.

I couldn't have done any of this without Justin's support and love. He has stood by me through all the ups and downs. He encourages me and steps in when I need someone to lift me up. He helped me to become more than I ever dreamed and I will always be grateful to him.

Thank you honey for giving me ten happy years, three wonderful children and a life I never thought possible so many years ago. You are my Prince Charming!

Happy 10 Year Anniversary!
