Today I say "I do" and so our life begins....

Here's a little schmaltzy sentiment for you. Seven years ago today I said "I do". Did I have any idea of what was in store for me? Or what my life would become? Or that we would someday be rearing twins? Clinging to what was once sanity? Guzzling fine wine(since the chillins) as if it were an IV?!. Living in D.C.? Did you sweetheart? Did you? I often ask myself if you had it to do over again, would you? Easy, tigger we're connected at the hip now or as you said (remember our vows) until death do us part!(you're not dead...) You know (or at least I hope you do) I wouldn't even have to think twice--no one holds a candle to you! I love you oodles and oodles and don't know what I'd do without you. I'm glad there's you to smile at me, and to share my thoughts and dreams. I'm glad you love me too. You still take my breath away baby. Yeah, honey I would marry you all over again! I wouldn't change a thing. Well, maybe a little more sleep and a lot more sex, (did I say that out loud?) but my life is so much more than I ever imagined.

I find myself bragging(shocking) that I have such an amazingly patient(need to be with the crazy one) loving husband and two fantastically scrumptious little girls and Mai! Makes me tingle all over with pride or else I pee'd myself. Yeah, so I'm a bit of a cheeky crazy momma who loves her family. I can't help myself.

I want to share the anniversary card(exactly as she wrote it) Mai made for Jeff and I. It made my heart swell that she even knew it was our anniversary! I don't remember talking about it. Note to self; Must remember what I talk about...not that I forgot honey. I'm not a weepy person but I found myself chocked(touched my heart) up and slobbering like a St. Bernard! I was speechless. Not only did she make the incredibly sweet card but she also included amazing gifts she had brought from her home country--Thailand.

Dear Rony & Jeff, (host mom & dad)

Happy Wedding Anniversary!

I wish Rony and Jeff are lovers (so do I) who are the most happiness in the world. I'm so glad

that your are my host parents. (o.k. now I'm sobbing ).

Thank you so much.

Love Mai..

Sweet Mai... we love you too. You are like a daughter to Jeff and I and we feel more than lucky to have you in our life. Thank you, thank you for being a part of our big crazy universe and sharing your world with us! Big hugs and Le-smooches to you my dear sweet gorgeous child. May your year with us be filled with loads of love, laughter and fond memories.
