Eleven.

1. We have a few more pounds on us than we did 11 years ago.

2. We have a nicer house than we did.

3. There are more toys on the floor of our home than there were 11 years ago.

4. We have a bigger bed now.

5. That bed often has kids in it.

6. We laugh more now than we did 11 years ago.

7. Back then we didn't know it was even possible to enjoy each other any more. Now we know.

8. We get far fewer date nights now.

9. But we still value them as much, or more.

10. He still lets me borrow his t-shirts in the summer (and socks in the winter) even though that sometimes leaves him scrambling in the morning with nothing to wear.

11. He supports my passions for jewelry and photography, always listening to me when I talk about ISO's and shutter speeds and rusty backgrounds, even though I see his eyes glaze over.

Happy 11 year anniversary to my sweetheart who doesn't even read my blog.
I'll make him read this though. Haha!
