Thanks Darryl

Today is Darryl and mine 7 year wedding anniversary. Ideally I'd love to write a post about how wonderful he and life is, but I am not in the mind frame to do that. Really what I want to say is that having a newborn and never getting more then a 45 minute block of sleep last night is really damn hard. Even as I type this I am crying with fatigue and that my laptop is wet and broken. Even though having this newborn is so hard and it is taking a toll on all my relationships I couldn't be more grateful that I am going through this hard time with Darryl. Marriage is not only about all the great and wonderful things Darryl bring into my life, it is that he is there for me no matter what. Even when things are hard and I know things are hard right now. I'm glad to have married someone who I can talk to even when I'm feeling down and irrational.

I love you Darryl.

Hello there. I have been thinking about you because we share the same year, month and day anniversary. I wish only the best for you, so keep your chin up. Remember that change is constant with newborns, so it all could turn around in an instant. Also, I'm so glad that you have your Darryl...I honestly don't think I could've made it through those first couple of years without Josh.

I am thinking about you and hope that everything gets better for you. Also, you can celebrate your love any 'ol time, not just this one day this year. I think your love means so much more than just one day.

Take care. And Happy Anniversary to you both.

Happy anniversary.

I hope you can celebrate tonight...by going to bed early tonight together and curling up and having a good night sleep, longer than 45 min intervals!

that's my wish for you. Have a good night!
