It doesn’t matter where you go in life, what you do ….. it’s who you have beside you.

On March 10th (tomorrow!), Cale and I will celebrate our 10 year anniversary of being together!  My how the time has flown by.

Now, I know that 10 years of emotional attachment is just a drip in the bucket of life.  And I definitely have MUCH respect for those marriages/relationships that have withstood longer tests of time. But I'm proud of our 10 years, damnit!  We are still SO madly in love with eachother.  We have learned how to deal with our differences.  Learned how to communicate.  And are respectful of one another's space.

I feel so blessed to have crossed paths with this man... he is an amazing and facinating person to me.  He's genuine, chivalrous, big-hearted, handsome, considerate, patient, kind, free in sprit, intelligent, loyal, witty, honest, trustworthy, dependable, romantic, and extremely supportive of my decisions.  He always puts me first, rejoices in my happiness, and shares in my pain.  This is just a scratch on the surface of his qualities.

I know that when I read this in the fifteenth, the twentieth, or the thirtieth year of being together, I will love him then as I love him today.

Ode to my Husband...
Cale Topinka, I love you more than mere words may express. You are my rock, my best friend, my humility, my partner in crime, and my commrade in arms. You make a wonderful father just as you have shown you make an admirable husband.  I know I haven't been perfect and can be a little "hard to deal with" sometimes.  But I want you to know that I thank God everyday for you and you are truly the reason I wake up in the morning.  I can't wait to continue to spend the rest of my life with you.
