Happy Anniversary!

14 years ago, I married my best friend and soul mate. I still don’t know how I got so lucky. Vic is my rock, my foundation, and, with him by my side, I can make it through anything.

Its funny but , if you had asked me back in high school who I would marry, I would have described someone both entirely like and entirely different from my husband. I would have described a man of intelligence, a man with a passion for his job, a man with a strong faith in both God and family. Vic is all those things and more. However, I also pictured myself married to someone with a high powered, white-collar career. I don’t know why. I just did. Back then, I also pictured myself having some high powered career. Instead a found exactly what I wanted and needed in a man who has spent his career serving the public…first as a firefighter and now as a 911 director. I also found a man who was willing to work his ass off so I could stay home with our kids. I’m so immensely thankful I got him.

Vic is kind, funny, and very intelligent. He is a total smartass and has a quick wit (hehehe, one day I’ll have to tell you about his Canadian conspiracy theory. You’ll be rolling on the floor laughing before its over). He is also stubborn and maddening (but, then, what male isn’t). There have been moments I have been totally pissed off at him and I’m know there have been times I have ticked him off completely but we have never, ever gone to bed mad at each other or help onto that anger for a ridiculous reason.

I married the man of my dreams and I hope we have at least another 50 yrs together.
