Allan, I wrote this post about 20 times, but I have to take Violet to school and spend my day with you, so I just want to say THANK YOU for the last 4 years. Thank you for the 3 before that, too. Thank you for saying yes when I asked you to marry me in the redwood trees so long ago and thank you for continuing to say yes, even when I'm being a turd.
You know as well as I do how perfect our day was. It was so evident that God really was Blessing our union. I didn't know it then but I do now and I am so grateful.
