8 Years

An engagement photo circa 2002

No, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. I am biting Ian's ear in this picture. It was totally random and not planned. So you are seeing his true reaction to the ear biting incident. Why I did it? That remains a mystery to this day, along with many things I randomly do.

Happy 8 years of sharing a last name with the man I love. 

Every year, it just keeps getting better and better. This man just gets me. He is probably the only person on the planet that does. I love that I can 100% be myself around him. I love the comfort we have with each other. I love the peace and security I feel at night with him laying next to me. I love the joy I get when I see him playing with our son. I love his thoughtfulness when he helps around the house. I love that to this day, he still does all the ironing (for both of us). I love that I don't feel awkward sitting in silence with him. I love that we can have intelligent conversations with each other. I love that we both love coffee. I love that he watches out for me. I love that he tells me I am beautiful, even thought I am big and pregnant. I love that he is sarcastic.

But the one thing I love most is how much I know this man loves me.


  1. hahah love the pic!! Happy Anniversary!

  2. I remember the beautiful day well. Happy anniversary and many many more!
    Love, Brenda

    PS I love texting. I am not tech savy. It is cheaper to text than to call. It keeps me in touch with G-kids and kids. I don't have a toddler, but with age I can many times read better than hear. By the way, you can text me sometime. Your Mom has the number.

  3. Firstly, the pic is "so you"!! Secondly, I love all your sweet sentiments. The truth in your words is a great example for all!

    Happy Anniversary Jess and Ian!

  4. This is awesome... all the very BEST to you guys!

  6. What a sweet, sweet post. That's exactly the type of husband I want... a coffee loving, intelligent conversation AND silence-having person who tells me I'm beautiful.
