Website to share your memories forever

To the man who stepped out of my dreams and made them all a reality...

On our second Valentine's Day apart, I wanted to make this a tribute to the love we share, the memories we've created, and the sacrifices we've made. You are more than just my husband. You are a wonderful father, my best friend, my soulmate, and my hero. I am so proud of all you have done and are still doing. You are my savior on so many countless levels. I know that you are the man that God intended for me, and you are the man of my dreams (and then some!).

What started off a little rocky has really blossomed into something more beautiful and precious than anything I could have ever imagined.You have done more than love me; you have helped me to love myself. For that, I am eternally grateful. I am so proud to be your wife. I look forward to growing old with you, and to making more wonderful memories with you. You are my heart and soul, and I treasure you. I couldn't imagine taking this journey through life without you by my side. You are my moon because you light up my life even through the darkest of times! I love you and miss you, and am counting the days until I'll be in your arms again! HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!

Special Memories
APRIL 26, 2005  
This day will remain etched in my memory until I draw my last breath. I have never been filled with such pride as I was on this day. This is the day that you came home from Iraq. I think that I was more nervous that day than I was on our wedding day! There was a red carpet laid out for all of the heroes that would be walking there that day. There was music playing loudly...singing about how great America is, and how great the men and women are that fight for it. There were people everywhere, some holding signs, some holding children....but when I saw you, everything and everyone disappeared. I know that I fell in love with you all over again in that instant. I couldn't believe that I finally had you back in my arms after 10 long, stressful, worry-filled months. Holding you in my arms that day was such an amazing feeling. One of relief, one of joy, one of pride. I am so proud of you, and all that you do. You have no idea how much of a hero that you are to me and Alyssa, and one day, Zack as well. I am so glad that I married such a noble, caring man. You are such a great pillar of strength in my life. Always remember that Iraq tested our marriage, our strength, and our sanity...but we made it through it all. Not only that, but we came out on the other side so much stronger and better than we were when we went in. We can make it through anything as long as we have each other!
OUR WEDDING DAY (12-17-03):  

I will never forget the feelings that I had on our wedding day. It was the wedding I had always dreamed of. I remember how nervous I was while I was standing there waiting for the doors to open and for me to walk down the aisle. When those doors opened, and I saw you standing there waiting for ME, I couldn't believe it! I couldn't believe that I had found someone like you. I recall how I was shaking, and I wondered how I could be nervous about marrying someone as wonderful as you. I know now that it was because I was scared that I would somehow let you down and disappoint you one day. I knew that you deserved the best, and I only hope that that's what I've given you.

You did something that day that touched me so deep. You vowed to always love Alyssa. You included her in OUR big day. You showed me what true love is at that moment. You showed me that true love does conquer all, that it does overcome all obstacles, and that it loves all of you and everything that comes along with you. You made me the happiest woman on Earth that day, and have continued to do so ever since. I would marry you all over again!!!!!!!
