9 Years Strong

 9 years, I mean WOW! And this Christmas Day it will be 11 years that we have been together. Sometimes it seems short and other times I literally cannot wrap my head around the fact that we have been married for 9 years TODAY! As you know this year has been tough, I mean really rough. We did get to travel over the Summer which was so much fun but other than that this was a year full of hardship.  But I am so proud of us that we made it thru, a lot of couples do not make it thru infertility and a final diagnosis like ours. And you know what..... this card was the most perfect card I have ever given Matt...........
9 Years is Leather which is really a perfect representation of our marriage:
Leather is Tough and Strong
Leather can be worn and still valuable
Leather is in it for the long haul
I knew immediately what I wanted to get Matt but getting it wasn't super easy! His favorite Cardinals player of ALL TIME is Ozzie Smith, the Wizard. And you all know me... I like a challenge and I found it........
 Matt was beyond shocked and excited that his "leather" gift from me was an authentic Ozzie Smith autographed baseball! I was so excited to give this to him and it took him a few minutes to wrap his head around the fact that this was REAL!!!!!!
I say it a million times on here... my love of gift giving and my gift of being good at it ... it's so selfish really, because I feel SO GOOD when I find the perfect gift and make someone happy!
 I also wanted a more thoughtful gift so I found this Wish Jar. Matt and I are going to write our wishes going into our 10th year of marriage and next year on our 10th anniversary we will open it back up, read it and see what we have made come true. Positive wishes is really what we need right now.
Happy Anniversary my Matty, making it 9 years is such an accomplishment with everything that has stood in our way over the years. And I will say it over and over there is no one else I would rather fight with. I love you!

Your jar reminded me of something I started in January this year. It was a gratitude jar. You fill it up with things you are grateful for and on New Year's Eve you go through and are reminded of your blessings. I honestly forgot about it I came across it in a box last weekend. So, I got a little behind. I wrote some that I thought of during that span though.

Happy Anniversary and y'all are definitely strong and your marriage is too! Here is to MANY more.
