Thirteen Years, One Week and One Day

Jay and I celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary last week. (well sort of) Our anniversary fell on Baby A's surgery day, so we really haven't done anything yet to celebrate.

I can't believe it's been 13 years - I mean really - am I getting that old? :) At the end of August I will have known Jay as long as I didn't know him.

I said a lot about him on my Father's Day post, and I don't want to repeat myself, but I could go on and on about him.

When most people first meet Jay they think he's a jerk - stand offish - an a-hole. But really, he isn't any of those things. He's just really shy - I'm definitely the outgoing one in the relationship.

He is an amazing husband and father. I usually have nothing to complain about. I can't imagine my life without him.

I tried to take some pictures of our wedding album. Yes, people, I got married before digital photos!! :) And oh my gosh - we were young and thin!!!

You guys looked lovely on your wedding day!

Hey, I've only met Jay once, and I definitely didn't think he was a jerk -- I thought, this guy is so cool b/c it is so obvious that he is completely in love with his little boy!!!

Congrats on 13 years together, that is a rarity these day. Brandon and I got married in 1999, also before digital pictures. Well, they existed but way too expensive for us so we have the book as well! Parker always asks where she was in the pictures, it's so cute. Wishing you many more years of happiness.
