Choosing Love

Wow - would ya look at those kids!  That feels like so long ago and yet like yesterday at the same time.  Its hard to believe looking at our baby faces that it was a year after we were married and almost 5 years after we had started dating.  You would think it was our wedding from the looks on our faces - either that or you could make the correct assumption that we had already been hitting the bottle in celebration of the happy couple, LOL!  
Almost 18 years together and every year gets better.  And its not because things are always perfect, because that's not anyone's reality.  But its because we choose each other above everything.  We choose to give each other a hug and a kiss and an "I love you" every night no matter what.  We choose to communicate and share.  We choose to apologize and forgive.  We choose to work together to find a solution when we have a problem or a conflict with each other.  We choose to spend time as a family and not commit to running too many directions and when we do, we choose to re-prioritize.  We choose to work hard to reach our goals.  We choose to support each other's passions.  We choose to find shared passions we can enjoy as a couple and as a family.  We choose to work as a team - whether its getting something done or dealing with the kids.  We choose each other.  Happy Valentine's Day!
