"I guess thats why I can never settle for anything less than amazing...."

"I love you so much, its retarded...."

Today marks the day that Mami and I signed a government document that allowed us to share medical benefits and legal names.....awwww its true love!!!
Reading that just makes you think we could probably could care less about each other right? Maybe at the time, we knew we loved each other but we treated the actual marriage more like a business contract. I knew I was going to marry this girl long before we signed any piece of paper. If I didn't have to deal with legalities for the benefit of my family, I may have waited to have the perfect wedding to sign a marriage license.
To this day, its about whats in my heart for Mami, not what a piece of paper tells the world.
My Grampa told me just before we got 'officially' married at the courthouse, "No matter how you choose to do it later, this is your anniversary NOW! You can't take it back..."
He was right, no matter how I look at it, I remember that day I told my wife 'I do'. Its for that reason we share our anniversary with Nate, he was our witness!
Stephanie came out of nowhere at the most random time in my life. Through a series of random events, we changed each other for the better. I continue to learn and grow from my life of being married to my best friend. Its not just about how she changed my life anymore, its about how we are shaping it for our future and the future of our family. We are dreaming big and loving even the smallest moments.
Steph and I have had an amazing year together. So many changes, so many great things, and of course many frustrations. I am so happy to have a partner in crime as well as one who understands me when I need her to the most.
I love her for her endless amount of support she gives me everyday. There is really noone else in the universe I can picture myself carving a beautiful existence with. She is determined to make the world work around her and nothing is too challenging for her. She will conquer that mountain whether you like it or not! But she never forgets to laugh and enjoy a good time when the moments are there.....Steph never misses a beat and she keeps you going when you think have nothing left to give!
Today may be our third anniversary, but Steph continues to give me a lifetime...oh and shes hot too!
I love you booshie lady!
Clearly we make beautiful babies as well such as the warrior boy below....
And of course, little miss Abba Zabba.....
