Happy Anniversary

We grew up and went to school less than 5 miles away from each other even though his outfit makes him look thousands of miles away.

We met in college. I think he was in a gang or something (j/k). We became fast friends and saw each other go through so many different relationships. Years on we became best friends. He was there for every major time in my life. When my dad died he was the only one who could hug or touch me without me cringing. I remember the night of my dad's funeral he drove me out to watch the airplanes take off. We sat on the hood of his car and I just cried in his arms. He taught me how to live again. He was there for my little brother to lean on too.
Many of the people we dated always questioned our friendship- if they got out of line- they were gone. We were too important to each other.

We finally decided that we should be together. It was a whirlwind romance. We just wanted to be together. Everyone knew that this was just the way it was supposed to be.

Sage proposed in the Hawk Rock during a coffee house. All of our loved ones were there to share our moment.

We were married May 10, 2003. Since then we have had some amazing moments. We've had our ups and downs. But like Sage always says- "We laugh way more than we cry".
Sage, I love you more than all the stars in the sky. I never thought that I'd be lucky enough to marry my very best friend. We've already had so many adventures together- the first to marry, have a kid- and I know we've got so many more roads to cross. I know I drive you nuts, and you me, but there is no place I would rather be, no place that I feel safer, no better father, no better husband, no better best friend. I love you. Happy Anniversary.
