10 Year Anniversary!

I just wanted to take a minute and tell my amazing wife MDI (@MDI_FYFC) just how much I Love her.

*** Spoilers, it’s about to get mushy… if it’s not your thing go listen to a FYFCast or Fearcast now. For those of you that are still here, let the gushing begin. ***

Ten years ago today I was able to marry greatest supporter, my rock, my best friend. I know that sounds clichΓ©, but it’s 100% true. If you are curious about how we came to be, you can hear “The Story Of Us” on Fearcast.

This magnificent woman walked into my life the first day of high school and I was mesmerized. I have been hooked ever since. It took awhile to bring her around, but I did it. We got together October 17, 1999 & six years later formed a bond that continues to strengthen with every passing day. Its been said it was one of the most epic wedding / receptions to go down in history (well, where we are from.) Here are some great memories from that day.

Danielle, you are my world. My day doesn’t start until I have a “good morning” text buzz my phone. I knew from the first day I met you that you would be my wife. Your awe-inspiring ability to care for others cemented in my mind that you would be a great mom. And you have proven that with our two outstanding children. Through thick and thin we have stood together… Us against the world. One of the biggest reasons I think we have lasted is that we both come into this relationship without ego, and have had each others back. There were tough times in college, with money, time, being spread too thin. These things would have killed a relationship. But not ours. Any time one of us got down, the other was there, to pick them up… dust them off, and help get back in the ring of life. From the beginning we said if we go down; we are going down together and we are going down swinging.

Times have changed and many of the worries we had are gone, left is a foundation that is unshakeable. I couldn’t have done it without you. I wouldn’t be able to do the work I do if I didn’t have total respect and belief that while I’m away my astonishing companion wasn’t going to hold down the fort. She does an outstanding job, and I’m sorry if I don’t say it enough. You do a phenomenal job at making sure the kids, house, pets, and Bobby are taken care of.

I know I’m rambling, it hurts that I have to be away on this day. But I am hoping that expressing my love for you in some sensational way will let you know just how much I absolutely love you. When I come home on the 30th be prepared. As soon as I see you, I’m going to pull you close and kiss you with everything I have.

I want to close out with the poem that I used to propose to you. The words still hold very true.


I Love You.
