To my husband..

Grow old along with me -- the best is yet to be
When our time has come -- we will be as one

God bless our love -- God bless our love

Grow old along with me -- two branches of one tree
Face the setting sun -- when the day is done

God bless our love -- God bless our love

Spending our lives together -- man and wife together
World without end -- world without end

Grow old along with me -- whatever fate decrees
We will see it through -- for our love is true

God bless our love -- God bless our love

God bless our love -- God bless our love


"Grow Old Along With Me" ~ Mary Chapin Carpenter

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Yesterday was our 11 year wedding anniversary -- 11 years! This was the song we danced to for our first song as husband and wife. Still -- everytime I hear this song, I still get goosebumps listening to the words, even though the meanings have changed a bit -- For instance, "Face the setting sun, when the day is done".. that is starting to have a different meaning.. Back then, it was all about our wedding day. Everything was all about The Big Day. Now 11 years and 2 kids later -- we're strong as a unit, and know that The Day meant a lot, but not nearly as much as the day to day of a marriage to your best friend -- a unit, a lifetime of little moments mean.

B, you are my best friend, my confidante, my rock, my soulmate, my problem-solver (you can't help that part, you're a man! ha!), my strength when I am weak, the best daddy for my babies, my partner, my love. I love you more today then ever. Here's to 50 plus more! Happy Anniversary, Sweetheart! xoxoxoox
