Time flies when you're in love...

Sixteen Candles is one of my favorite movies. Every year around this time I watch it over and over again, because there is nothing better than falling in love on your birthday. The movie is politically incorrect and often crude, but it's hilarious with a fantastic soundtrack. 8 years ago next Friday, is the day husband and I started dating. It was my 21st birthday, and we started hanging out a few days before, after being introduced by mutual friends. The same friends arranged a little birthday party for me at a pizza place, and said he if showed up wearing a button down shirt, then he really liked me. He did. The shirt is still in the closet. Lots has happened since that day, good and bad, but the one thing that remains, the one thing that we've never questioned, is how in love we are. We trip over each other, trying to make the other happy. It's like a comedy sketch sometimes. No matter what is going wrong, I know that getting to be with him every day is the greatest part of life. So husband, if you're reading this (and you will because I'll remind you to), just know that I love you, appreciate you, and life wouldn't be fun without you.

If Ian had never met you I wouldn't be the same person I am today. Not only did he fall in love with you, our whole family did too. You are the kindest, most generous person I know, and the best friend I will ever have. I am inspired everyday by the love you two share. I cannot wait to see you next weekend! Love you more than words can say!!
