8 years

Today is our wedding anniversary. Dan and I have been married for 8 years. We got a chance to go out and celebrate on Saturday, since his mom was visiting and was available to watch the kids. We went to the Melting Pot and had a wonderful evening. We were going to try and go to a movie too, but somewhere in the last 8 years we got old! I can't stay awake long enough to see a movie that starts at 10 anymore.



Anyway, I would like to take this opportunity to publicly declare that I have the best husband ever. I don't know how I got so lucky and I should probably make more public declarations of my love for him. When I think back on what we've been through together in the past 8 years it brings tears to my eyes. We were so young and yet through our life experiences we've matured together. We have created the most amazing family and we are so happy. We've learned that we really can get through even the most difficult situations as long as we are together. Thank you God, for my amazing husband!

I love how you and Dan love and support each other and enrich each others lives. Together you are better than you are as individuals, though you are awesome individuals!

it has been an amazing journey that you two have gone through in the past 8 years and i can't wait to continue watching your family grow together.

also, check out this comment from your friend on my friend, devon's, blog! soooo funnnnn!! i'm loving this!

>>I am in awe of this! (I am a friend of a friend of Leslie's--don't know either of you but love your lives so living vicariously via blogs). Questions: How did they teach everyone? Did you know this was going to happen? What about those with no rhythm? Do you think Oprah was surprised? Did you almost pee your pants? There is no way the whole audience ever practiced together, right?
WOW! Envious. Amazing.

Happy Day to both of you. I do have to disagree with you Miss Andrea when you said you were "Lucky" God sure did know what he was doing when he put two amazing people together that could hold each other up during the challenging times and completely love and enjoy each other ALL the time!! Love you both!
