A New Year

2013 is in the books.  As I think about the old year many memories come to my mind, good and bad.  The one thing that sticks out the most though is how my love for my best friend has grown.  I'm so thankful that after being married for almost fourteen years I can say that I love Joel more now than I did the day I married him.  As 2014 begins, I pray that this year brings us even closer and the love even stronger.

For Christmas Joel surprised me and skipped out on his annual hunting trip with his best friend from college to spend a few days in the Smokey Mountains with me.  I could not have been more surprised!  He spent three days spoiling me.  I would not trade those three quick days for any piece of jewelry in the world!  I know I have gotten kind mushy with this post, but I believe you should give honor where it is due, and he definitely deserves some honor in my book!  I love you Joel!!
