Happy 10th Anniversary Sugar Lips.

I don't really call him sugar lips, or any other pet name for that matter.

I'm married to my perfect match. If you know me well, you know that I can be quite flighty, OK, really flighty. Michael has a way of encouraging my passions and dreams, while bridling them to realistic proportions. He is the string on my kite, he allows me to fly where I need and want, but keeping me from being lost in the wind forever.

Michael is a great gift giver, he knows what I want, even if I haven't realized it yet. I will have no clue what he is going to give me, I don't have to leave hints, or magazines with items circled in them etc. I will open up a gift, and it will be exactly what I want. I can always tell that he had put a lot of thought into it. There are no last minute trips to the mall the day of my birthday, or waiting a few days after the event for the present to be delivered.

Michael is also very thoughtful. At least once a week I get an email or a note on the counter letting me know how much he appreciates all I do and how much he loves me. You can find Michael getting the groceries every Saturday, because I HATE grocery shopping. He also does all the meal planning and even tells me my options of meals to make if he isn't going to be home to make dinner. He does about 90% of the meal making as well. Not only does he take care of the food in this house, (if he didn't we would probably starve) he helps out around the house as well. He helps with dishes, sweeps, mops, makes the bed etc. Sheesh, it is going to sound like I don't do anything!

He is a great father and loves being with the kids. He makes sure to take Reece out on father/son nights often. He is a good example to them in how he treats me, in helping out around the house, and being a hard worker, along with a ton of other things.

Probably the thing that drew me immediately to him is his sense of humor. Michael is really really funny, we have such a great time together. Looking back, it has been a great 10 years!

Love you, Babe!

Not close to perfect but we are good for each other. Marisa didn't mention that she mows the lawn and changes the oil in the car while I am getting groceries. We just do what needs to be done and we don't define our roles based on societies expectations.
