the best of decisions

Marry the right person. 
This one decision will determine 90% of your happiness or misery.

I saw this on pinterest the other day and it just reminded me so much of my relationship with Aaron. It's been something that I've been reflecting on and thanking God for a lot this past year. Neither of us will ever claim to have the perfect marriage, but I think we both agree that it's pretty great. There is an incredible friendship that others see and have asked us about. Really, if I could only have one friend ever, it'd be Aaron. We even started out our relationship as friends, both floundering college freshman trying to sort out who we were. I think that base, that friendship, has just continued to grow and became such an incredible foundation for our marriage. 

And so, that's what I'm thinking about and thanking God for today. For my sacrificing husband, who does the dishes at 6:30am before he leaves for work because he knows how much I hate them. For my kind husband, who only laughs and then kisses me when I'm still wearing the clothes I woke up in. For my sweet husband, who gets up with Everett on weekends so that I can sleep a little longer, even though I get to sleep in all week. For my hardworking husband, who puts in an insane amount of hours and still comes home and chases Everett around the house, gives him a bath, and reads stories with him. For my loving husband, who affirms his love for me in words and actions.

He makes me laugh always, sacrifices for me daily, and loves me even at my worst. 
Aaron- you're the best decision I've ever made. 
I just love you and want you to know that today.
