We have definitely had our highs and lows. Each moment, each experience, each trial has strengthened our relationship. I love Drew more now that I did that day when I married him. We are both such different people because of the life we have lived and are living. But, deep down Drew is the same. He is still full of silliness to the point of eye rolling from me. He still hums all the time. He is slow and usually late. He likes to talk to everyone about anything. He still believes in hard work, honesty, and dedication to those around him. He still has a hard time expressing his feelings, but no one can doubt how Drew feels about something. Despite the lack of words, it is still quite evident. Drew still loves me (thank God!) and I know that I picked a great guy! No one could love me more or better than Drew does.

|It took Drew 4 tries to look at the right place for our selfie!|
|He knows exactly how to make me happy...frozen custard in a cup!|
But, we are parents so we celebrated our anniversary with our kids too. We went out to dinner at a family favorite place and Emma made us a cake. The kids also used their own money to buy us gifts. They are just too much sometimes. And, Drew gave me the most beautiful flowers with my favorite star gazer lilies!
