Happy Anniversary...

*Warning Mushy Post*

Over the weekend Josh and I celebrated our 11 year wedding anniversary! I am so blessed to be married to my very best friend. I have known Josh my whole life. We started dating when I was 14, he was 15! Sounds like forever ago, yet all of those memories seem like yesterday! High School sweethearts we were, getting married after his 2nd year in college. (19 and 20 yrs old)
I love that we still dream together, laugh together, and want to always help each other to grow.
Saturday morning, I woke up to the best gift I could have ever gotten and I had to share it with you.
I may just frame it!
Let me give you just a little preface. 
Josh has roughly 5,000 friends on Facebook. Lot's to do with his line of work, yet he posted this:

"Today is our 11 yr anniversary- 11 things I love about Jesse Peak"

1. I love the way she walks, with a sort of catwalk style confidence.

2. I love her entrepreneurial spirit.

3. I love her creative style.

4. I love her beautiful feet.

5. I love watching her play on her computer, while drinking her tea from McAlisters.

6. I love the way she loves people

7. I love her handwriting.

8. I love that she is competitive, and that she has no idea how sexy it is.

9. I love how supportive she has been, in my entrepreneur journey, my high school and college wrestling days and allowing me to find my way in life. She's been my rock. She's been so faithful. I love that!

10. I love how great of a mother she is to our beautiful children, and how she teaches them the importance of faith!

11. Most importantly, I love her faith in God. 

I have to say I cry every time I read this! I mean what more could a girl ask from her husband, than to have him tell her all the reason he loves her!

 (Josh's first year of college, I had one more year in H.S.)
(1999 our wedding day)
(3 kids later!)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend and a great start to your week!

There's nothing better than the "from the rooftops" shout of i love this girl! I can imagine lots of your readers showing this post to their spouses! I think I may! Even if just to make him feel better about being that way himself. Congrats on 11 years!
