Happy Anniversary to me!

Tomorrow will be 17 years since this picture was taken!

Oodalolly a lot has happened in this time!  I'm not gonna lie.  Blending families is hard stuff.  But I had three little ones who needed a Dad ... and I needed a man!  Gary was up for the task.  I think he fell in love with the family before he fell in love with me (and he fell in love with me super fast)!  Anybody who knows Gary, knows that he is crazy!  His energy level far surpasses anybody I've ever known.  He accomplishes more in a day than most do in a week.  He fears nothing ... and is willing to try anything.  He has protected and taught our little family unit and is an amazing example of good work ethic and service.  It's been a crazy ride, never a dull moment ... and I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Thanks for the ride you hunka hunka Shaker!
