Happy { One Year } Anniversary

To my handsome husband

★ I'm thankful for the fact that we were in the right place at the right time. At that moment, fate meant nothing to me - thank you for making me a believer.

Maui - February 2009 562


★ I'm thankful that our jobs both brought us to LA and that mine showed me that Seattle was where I truly belonged.

★ I'm thankful that we were both late for our flight. Not thankful, that we're now late for just about everything.

★ I'm thankful that I enticed you with my 2-fifths of vodka - thankfully, the "no liquid over 3oz" rule hadn't been put in place yet...otherwise, you may have been tempted to switch seats with someone else.

★ I'm thankful for the day you asked me to marry you atop Haleakala in Maui.

★ I'm thankful for our wedding day and the family and friends that traveled to celebrate with us. We've both said that we felt more love that day than ever before - I still believe it and wish we could go back and hit pause.

★ I'm thankful for your patience, your charm, your honestly, your love for our families, your way of knowing how to fix anything and everything, your smarts, your socks, your homemade dinners...

One year ago today, I married my best friend, when we said I Do in the most beautiful setting with the most important people in our lives around us.

I look forward to the day that Willard Scott (he'll do the Smuckers birthdays and anniversaries forever, right?) announces our 50th wedding anniversary on Today. The past year has been pretty perfect, but I know the next 50 years will only get better.

Steve - thank you for making me a lucky lady. I love you. I can't wait for our "anniversary" trip to Palm Springs next week and our trip to the Virgin Islands.
