Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary

Monday was Derek's 24th birthday! Happy Birthday Derek!

Today is my 3rd Anniversary with Derek. I can't believe it's been three years. It's seems like so much longer. I couldn't imagine my life without him now. I know everyone around me is getting a divorce so it's really nice to know that I have one of the few men that will truly stick with me until the end. We have such a great support group of family and friends.  It makes it easy to have an ear to bitch in and a shoulder to cry on when you need it instead of taking it out on the husband. We have made it through a few tough times but I know we will have many more in the future. I'm so happy I have Derek and so blessed that he gave me one of the greatest gifts ever...Stratton. I hope we have many more anniversaries together in the future. Here is what I got him for our anniversary.
I got this idea from a friend who also got one made for a child they lost. I ordered it from a couple who has a blog called Memories In The Sand here. They were super fast at getting me the file of the image and I ordered it from shutterfly. It turned our really neat and I think Derek was pretty impressed that I went through all the effort to get it. I thought it turned our really neat and it's something I can keep for many years to come.
