-8 anniversaries, 4 of which he was gone and 4 we got to spend together. We are 4/8
Being married to Steve has really been a "Life Less Ordinary" I had no idea what this ride would be like when I got on. We've had our ups and downs, definitely more ups. And I have loved every minute of being married to a man that has never settled for the norm. We started in a one bedroom basement apartment (our landlord was a crazy man) and now we have a beautiful house. He is always trying to be better and climb higher. He has worked hard to provide for our family, and taken on the burded alone so I can stay at home and take care of the boys. He is a great dad, and the boys just love him. James wants to "be a soldier like daddy." When he walks in the door they all run to give him hugs and try climb into his arms first. I was a lucky girl when I answered his personal ad on the internet. Crazy I know, but that's how our lives started and that's how it's going to continue.
I love you Steve!! You are a wonderful husband!!
