She’s been married for 2 years today

To this guy…

Lover of ponies and all that’s good in the world.

I’ve said this before, but I’m pretty impressed with myself for my incredible decision to marry this man. Sometimes I just sit and think about how wonderful he is and then I pat myself on the back for being so smart.

If you’re married, I hope your spouse is as wonderful as mine. And if you’re still looking for that special lover…here’s some advice. Which I only feel qualified to give because I found myself such a winner.

Yes, sexiness matters (I mean look at my sexy lumberjack), and yes common interest are nice, knowing that they work hard and can hold a job…yes that can be important too.

But I’ve found that more than anything what matters most is how they treat you. How loving they are. I married the nicest, sweetest, most tender man in the world, who not only treats me like a Princess, but also doesn’t walk out of the house when I act like one. Go for the nice ones, the dear ones, the precious ones. And life will be that much easier. Also go for the ones who bring those traits out in you. And you’ll find yourself turning into a better person because of the one you love.

Then we’ll all just be spreading that much more love in the world. And that’s a beautiful thing.

I love you Eric. You are my everything. Here’s to 2,000 more.

    congrats! Ari approves of your choice of husband too.

  2. Liz

    Awwww! I love it. Congrats on 2 years!

  3. Amanda

    Congrats you two. Before you know it you'll be an old hag like me with a kid and going on 5 years. It creeps up way too fast. And couldn't agree more about marrying a nice guy. I love mine, and from the few times I've met yours I can tell he's a keeper.

  4. Lisa

    Alison–it's me, stalker Lisa. I've been a lurker for some time now but this post just SPOKE to me and I could remain in the shadows no more. I married myself a "nice" guy too–and it was the best decision I ever made. 5 years and two kids later and somehow I still find myself falling in love with him over and over again, every single day. Congrats on two years–it only gets better with time. Enjoy your happily ever after!!!
    p.s. you may or may not remember me…Lisa Smarinsky from freshman year at BYU? I was kind of a dork. Still am, but at least i snagged myself a cool guy ; )

  5. Jendar

    thats great advice. i need it. so thanks! and congrats!

  6. McKayJoice

    I, like Lisa, can no loner remain in the shadows, I too have "lurked" on your blog for quite sometime.

    I have not found the Mr Right yet, and this lil' post just spoke to me. . . how wonderful you must have it.

    If he has a brother, send him my way.
