It's been 10.

Ten years. And I'm still a bit flustered around this boy. It's always a bit unnerving to me when there's a perfect song. The ones that express exactly what you're feeling. It almost feels like an invasion of privacy. This song was it when we were dating. Now I feel like this one*...absolutely. Quite often when we're trying to fall asleep I say "I can't believe I live with a boy." He's for sure the very best thing that's ever been mine. There's no doubt that I'm only up when he's not down. And I'm only me when I'm with him. I definitely need his grace to remind me to find my own. I'm a love sick crackhead. We're stuck like glue. It's so clear now that he's all that I have.
Anyone else but him...not happenin'. I could go on, and on...we'll leave it on this note. Or maybe a bit of this fanfare...you'll be singin' this all day. And a good sense of humor...because maturity is overrated. We can all stand to be as literal as Adam Sandler.


*GAH! Note to self: watch videos in their entirety before posting. Sorry, parents. It even made me uncomfortable!! Sheesh. This was linked to Katy Perry's Teenage Dream. Look it up if you so desire. Be forewarned.

neat post!
I feel like Justin has become my best friend over the years. You (I) say that you marry your best friend but I think that it's the trials in life that the two of you (us) face that make us really become best friends.

Happy 10th anniversary! Fun way to commemorate your journey together. Happy making music together!

Ten years already? I'll bet when you first got married you thought ten years was almost forever...I know I did. And here we are all those years later and it seems like it went by at the speed of light.
Congratulations you two!

Just had hopped over from Lani's blog, and wanted to wish you a Happy Anniversary, and tell you what an amazing post this was! You went to a lot of work, and one of the more creative post I have seen in a long time...if ever. I am sure your husband loved it!

Glad you're with the one you want! Hope the next 90 are as stellar! I didn't go through all the songs yet, am some bummed i missed the first video that's now asterixed...

ROCK ON!!!!

ps...i LOVED Outlander...read some of #2..was disappointed so skipped on to #3 and was still disappointed. She should have maybe just stuck with 1. I really was engrossed in it this past summer. Only took me a couple of weeks to read..and as you know..it's a BIG read! What's this about half broke horses..will have to check that out..
