From Tracie: It Has Been Eight Years

It Has Been Eight Years

I met Thomas when I was working at a bookstore. I sold him hundreds of cds and books and we became friends.

I remember the first time Thomas told me he loved me, before we took a scary ride on a tow truck

He proposed to me on the beach. I said yes.

Eight years ago, at midnight, we had our first wedding (there were two more that followed)  

He is the love of my life and I am thankful for every day of these eight years.

   You are a wonderful husband, father, provider and best friend.  I know that we have had lots of struggles over the last few years, but I also know that in the future, we will look back on this time as a growing experience.  It will be the time when we learned how to make it through anything as long as we are together.
    I see how hard you work everyday for this family, and I want to say thank you.  I love you!  You bring joy to me everyday.  You make me laugh.  You encourage me in everything I do (crazy or not!) you are my biggest fan....and I am yours!  You never fail to dream big (even when I rain down on those dreams with practicality) You have made me a more fun person (even when you have to drag me to it!)  You pray for us and with us everyday.  You are awesome.  I can never say enough how much I love you and how thankful I am that God gave you to me. Happy Anniversary.


  1. Happy Anniversary to one of the most amazing couples I "know". I am so grateful to know you both. You inspire me and you give me hope. I hope that one day I'm able to find a man as amazing as Thomas to love and cherish.

    I am so blessed to have you in my life. Thank you for allowing us into yours! <3

  2. What a sweet tribute to your husband... I wish you many more happy years together.

    Warm blessings,

  7. Happy Anniversary! This is so sweet! <3 (Our 8th is later this year -- only one wedding to each other though!) ;-)

  8. Happy Anniversary lovebirds! You are adorable. We got married in 12/01, so only a little before you (we only had one wedding though).....I think it would be cool to renew our vows at the 10-year mark....
