Thanks, Dear

For the past few months, my husband and I have been going through the process of purchasing a home. It has been exciting and grueling all at the same time. In July we closed on our home and earlier this month we took possession. We have been looking forward to moving in and getting back into our daily routines.

However the weekend that we eagerly received the keys, we walked into the now empty house and finally saw it more for what it was. Don't get me wrong, it is a nice, older home and we knew that we found a good one. We also knew that in time we wanted to remodel it to suit our own tastes, but we didn't anticipate having to do much to it in order to move in.

I don't know if it was the lack of furniture or the reality that it was ours, but suddenly we have found a million projects that need to be done before we move our 18 month old twins into the house. So my husband has been leaving work almost every night and driving straight to the new house and working hours by himself to make it suitable for the family. He has been killing himself to make it happen for all of us.

So, I wanted to send out a special "shout out" to my man. He is working very hard for me and the girls and I want him to know how much we appreciate all of his hard work. He isn't complaining, but instead is just making it happen. And we love him so much for working hard!

Yesterday was our anniversary and we didn't get to spend a lot of time together, so I want him to know how much I love him and also how happy these last six years of marriage has made me. We have had an interesting eight years together (I would need another blog to relive all of our crazy pursuits), but I wouldn't have changed anything. From all the moving, living in Florida and evacuating several hurricanes, various jobs and crazy work people, many endless nights of alcohol and talking, dreaming, listening to music and discovering how much we have in common to being twindada and twinmama and having to grow up a little so we raise our little ones right (although I think we both would admit that we will never grow up completely...what's the fun in that?), I have loved it all!

Thank you for making my life complete, twindada!

(Okay - everyone else can stop gagging, my mushy stuff is over with now.)
