A Decade of Love

(I apologize for the poor quality of these pics...they are pre-digital and I didn't want to take them out of my wedding album to scan...just envision me holding a huge, awkward, and heavy wedding album at an odd angle over our scanner...that is why there are only TWO.)

(if you squint, you'll see: Bonnie, Rachelle (of With One Step), Sandi (Jerry's sis), Kelly (my sis), me, Jerry, Mike (who just got married), Eric, Scott and Dave.)
10 years ago today, I outmarried myself. Everyone in my family would agree about that statement. I have said it a hundred times and I'm sure I'll say it hundred more, but I swear that my mom loves my husband more than she loves me. I don't blame her, I love Jerry more than I love myself too.

In honor of ten wonderful years with you, Jerry, here is a list of ten reasons I'd say "I do" all over again.

1. You love by action. You are a doer of love. You show me over and over again with every little and big way that you serve me and the girls.

2. You are selfless. It is obvious to anyone that has been around us that you put the me and the girls ahead of yourself time and time again.

3. You are a gentle leader. You don't beat us over the head with what the Lord is teaching you, but gently remind us at timely moments.

4. You accept my apologies with true forgiveness.

5. You are reliable and keeper of your word. I can count on you for whatever you promise.

6. You are a planner. Whether it is a vacation, a family event or just a night out, I can always count on you to have a fantastic plan in store.

7. You come from an amazing family...what a wonderful set of grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins our girls have been blessed with.

8. You are wise with your words and can often make sense out of a situation when no one else can.

9. You have an excellent work ethic and are a good provider for our family.

10. You are a hands on and engaging daddy to our precious girls...Lily and Jade...the sweetest gifts yet of this blessed union.

(Pictures of Lily should be up later...she's been at a friend's house all afternoon, but I've got my camera and veil ready for her return.)
I love you and so do they. Looking very forward to our upcoming anniversary trip. Happy 10th, sweetheart!

Sweet, sweet pictures, Kerry. Your girls want to be a princess bride just like mommy - don't you love that? So fun having girly girls.

I totally have scanner issues too, since mine are in a book - I went the picture of a picture route for mine, even though the quality isn't fantastic. :)

Happy Late Anniversary!! I loved the tribute to your husband. My anniversary is tomorrow. You really made me think about what I appreciate about my husband.
