Merry Christmas to the Man of My Dreams

It's been quite a year hasn't it? We've had so many changes... too many twists and turns to even count. This time last year neither of us had jobs, I had little hope, and yet, here we are. What an amazing year it's been.

I cannot being to express how blessed I feel to have you in my life. You are such an amazing man. You have kept me strong. You have kept my feet on the ground and kept me living in reality. You have kept me going... a tough job many days. You are my rock.

I remember the night I met you. I thought to myself, "well, here goes nothing. What have you gotten yourself into now?" I was really unsure... and now I am really happy. I got myself into the best thing that has ever happened to me. Hands down.

So, I want to thank you for the things you've done for me this year. Thank you for moving away from our home for me to take a job I wanted. Thank you for helping me move into my classroom. Thank you for supporting me through all of the ups and downs that have come our way this year. You know, there is a song about that and it says, "God gave me you for the ups and downs. God gave me you for the days of doubt." That's so true. God gave me you. I am so glad He did. Thank you for your positive attitude. thank you for reality checks. Thank you for being a MilShelb Dad and loving them as much as I do... maybe even more (if that's possible). Thank you for loving and caring about my family and friends. Thank you for always putting me and "us" first. Thank you for having priorities. Thank you for being someone that I love to come home to. Thank you for loving me... me... just as I am.

I love you, Jake. I've loved you from the first night I met you and I will love you forever.

Merry Christmas, Jake. I am looking forward to starting another New Year with you!

Merry Christmas MilShelb

You are my life. You keep me sane. You make me smile when my day was awful. You make me laugh when all I want to do is cry. You greet me at the door and say, "leave all that stuff out there. Come in and love us!" You keep my priorities straight.
I never knew I could love someone as much as I love the two of you. I never knew I'd meet someone who could change my attitude so much just by being who they are. I never knew how much my heart could ache when someone else was sick, hurt... but it does when you are. I never knew what a difference you would make in my life. I am so glad we have you both.
Thank you for loving me. Thank you for always being excited to see me. Thank you for your cuddling. Thank you for your warning barks. Thank you for being so silly and fun.
I love you, Milshelb. I love being a MilShelb Mom.
Merry Christmas, my babies. Merry Christmas.

Late Post

The 16th was my husband's birthday. He is so old. lol (Not really. He's exactly 12 days older than me... and I am young. lol) So, anyhow, I was planning to do a post for him on his birthday, but life got in the way. So, here's his birthday post.

Holy cow! Another birthday. Another year I've known you and you've improved my life. How do you do it? Never cease to amaze me. You are awesome. Happy Birthday to you, a wonderful man that I am blessed to share my life with.
I love you, Jake.
