Our night...

"Yes, I'll marry you, my dear, And here's the reason why; So I can push you out of bed When the baby starts to cry, And if we hear a knocking And it's creepy and it's late, I hand you the torch you see, And you investigate." - Pam Ayers

The above quote holds very true in our house!

Justin and I had a wonderful evening. We went out for a nice dinner, and then Just surprised me with a trip to Starbucks. I can always go for a cup of coffee no matter what time of day. Although I will be paying for it tomorrow because here it is 12:30 and I have a long day tomorrow that begins early in the morning.
Justin is not known for his Romaticism, but will plead his case. He and I are quite opposites, he is more reserved and I am more outgoing. I remember when we first met the Swansons my parents kept urging me to pursue a friendship with Justin, and I was like who is Justin ( ok I knew who he was) because the first time we went over to the Swansons I only remember Jared and his friend Joel, who had personalities similar to mine. Justin and I got to know each other better on a vacation our families took together and you know what I liked the guy.
Fast forward eight years, and here we are married with a baby boy, and I can say I love him more than ever. We have been through a lot, if you know us well, you know I am not kidding! But we have made it through thick and thin, and I would not want it to be with anyone else.
He hugs me at least once a day if not more, we ALWAYS say I love you on the phone before good-bye or before one of us leaves the house. That is something I cherish very much. We have tried the whole "don't go to bed angry" and we have done fairly well, but nobody's perfect. But we really have a good time together, we tease each other in good fun, and laugh a lot. We just get each other. I love him!

It's amazing how the tough times just make you stronger. Y'all are the best, and I'm so glad to have your friendship.

You're great models for parenthood and marriage - I hope I can be as successful!

Love to you both!

Your marriage actually sounds very similar to ours. Except that Nancy says she married me so she would have someone to carry the luggage.

I want you to know that I look up to you both so much, even if it seems like I only come over to break stuff. And when I say I look up to your relationship you know thats huge because I have seen all sides of it.
