Today Mark and I celebrate 13 years of being married. For some people 13 is an unlucky number, but we aren't worried. We got this. 

Thirteen things I love about us:
  1. We've known each other for nearly 20 years. We were babies when we met. Now, we are graying and getting older.
  2. Our idea of a perfect date is reading at the coffee shop and browsing at the book store
  3. We somehow created the wackiest, cutest, smartest, sassiest, and funniest kids in the universe.
  4. Our history is tied around music. From radio stations, to club DJs, to concerts, and living room dance parties. 
  5. You let me buy fabric and go thrift store shopping without giving me a hard time. I let you buy records and go to soccer games.
  6. There isn't an ice cream store you won't try with me.
  7. I love that we can be in separate parts of the house, but still feel better knowing each other is there.
  8. You always turn out my light and put away my book when I fall asleep reading. 
  9. We almost always laugh at each other's jokes.
  10. I like a really good chai. You like a really good beer.
  11. We're flexible and willing to be spontaneous---which is a good thing for our family.
  12. We give each other space and freedom to explore interests & hobbies. We have the same overall goals and work hard to achieve them.
  13. No matter what, we're friends first. Everything else falls into line easily after that.

I love you so much and am so grateful that you're on this journey with me!
