Always with me, always with you by Joe Satriani (Surfing with the Alien) was our song. It was playing one day and Aaron suggested it before looking at the title. When we checked the album cover it was like, "Yep, that's the one... It's a sign." ;)
We've known each other 23 years... been together 22 years... now we have been married 17 years.
Amongst all that we have had 5 gorgeous children, 4 dogs, 5 cats, a dozen or so fish, 2 (smelly) mice, 9 cars, owned 4 houses of our own, built 2 of them, lived in 16 others, moved 20 times (or there abouts... I've sort of lost count!). We've meet heaps of interesting people and made dozens of friends, had a near death experience of our own and then lost a great BIL . We've seen friends get married, seen them have children and seen some get divorced. We've fought, we've laughed, we've cried... we've been happy, we've been sad, we've been excited... we've been worried, we've been scared, we've been relieved... we've been enthralled... we've been exhausted! Most of all we've been there for each other... through all the triumphs and failures... through all the joys and sorrows. I could never have imagined that the boy who moved in next door would be my life partner, my true soul mate... the love of my life... but there you were... and here we are now... and oh what a ride it has been so far! I am sure it will only get better... and even if there are more trials and tribulations I know without a shadow of a doubt that we have what it takes to get through it all. We might not have much but we have our family and we have each other. I really do feel truly blessed... we don't DO mushy shit... but it's in my heart and I love you now, for ever and for always.
Happy Anniversary... love you, miss you, want you always. ;)

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE...
Edited to add... I forgot! I have a card in this month's SM... and I kinda, sorta like it too... but usually I SUCK @ cards! ;) I think it is because I actually think they are a bit of a waste of stash and energy so I don't like wasting my goodies on them... maybe I need to stop being such a stingey Scrooge! LOL ;)

My darling big girl... who is 7 going on 17!!!
Like I said, just the basics at this stage but downloading free brushes has become an addiction and I am getting quite a collection of digi papers and elements happening. I can definitely see this becoming a permanent part of my scrapping repertoire... but I have enough "real" paper and embellies to scrap the past 7 and next 14 generations of my family so I don't think I will ever stop "in real life" scrapbooking! ;) Dylan's latest little saying, when you do something "for real" as opposed to "just pretend"... note to self: do a IRL page for Dylan "in real life".
We are all going really well... so far, so good anyway. Hard to believe the babies are 3 months old already. Their little personalities are really beginning to show now and I am loving getting to know them. All in all they are very patient with me and though we have had our moments mostly they are very good and sleep through the night for their Mumma... who is a lunatic and should go to bed not play on facebook and Photoshop all night!
I am quite looking forward to spending some time with my darling girls and biggest boy these school holidays... they need some Mum and Dad time too. Seems EVERYTHING is about babies atm. My kids drive me up the wall most days... we are certainly not a Hallmark family (our latest catch phrase is "EVERY BODY LOVE EVERY BODY", courtesy of Will Ferrell in Semi Pro)... but I must say they have been brilliant and settling in with the new editions really well. Having 5 kids is still a bit surreal but I am actually really enjoying them all atm and managing much better than I thought I would.
Better get some sleep... thanks for stopping by.
