Four score and seven years ago.....

Well not really...but 6 years ago today i married this fella.

Not bad huh? *grin*

Now as husbands go he is pretty great...of course he does do the usual irritating blokey stuff like leaving the toilet seat up (ok only occasionally), leaves his wet towel on the floor, bits of shaven hair in the bathroom sink, doesnt pick up the dog poop as often as i'd like...yadda yadda yadda... BUT then theres the sweet man who loves his family unconditionally, supports me in everything i do and who tells me every day he loves me and that i am beautiful, even when im in my jammies in bed all sick and yuk with bed hair and red nostrils from blowing my nose..ICK.

My hubby is a hard worker and a fighter. For those of you who dont know, Shane is in remission from Hodgekins Disease and we almost lost him several times (You can read his amazing story by clicking HERE and scrolling down a bit to page 3.), so when something like that happens you realise that the annoying things i mentioned before are really not worth all the fuss and bother.
Whats important is right now.

And together we made this precious angel so if thats not worth celebrating then i dont know what is ! :)

So today i say Happy Anniversary Babe to my Best Friend, My Soul Mate.
Heres to many more happy and healthy years Shane...I love you.

Shann :)

Thanks for reading !

Shannon and Hubby.....Happy Anniversary! By the way, you were a part of my game too. After I loaded all the pics., I did not see yours. I figured it out because I only did 10 and yours was #11! I will have to post it just for fun so you can see it though.
