But these go to 11.

The title of this post has little to do with the subject other than the number and it being funny.

11 years ago today, I got married. I had only known the guy 9 months. I had spent 3 drama filled weeks, yes I said weeks, planning a wedding during which time I also drove my car into a semi, completely totalling it and walking away with some bruises. That story is for another day.

I don't remember a ton about that day to be honest. It went by so fast. But the end result is all that matters. Eleven years ago, I got married to a fantastic guy. Sweet, funny and really smart. We have had some rough times, but on the whole we have had more good than bad. He is a fantastic father and husband. We are really very lucky. Last year for our 10th anniversary we were having some financial issues. We had originally planned to go to England for our 10th, and well that didn't happen. So he got Fish n chips for dinner and we watched The Prisoner. It was such a wonderful idea and we had a great time. He said if we couldn't go to England, he would bring England to us. If you are reading this honey, I love you.

I hope everyone out there is lucky enough to find someone great and has more sunshine than rain in their lives. Have a great day!

Happy Anniversary, I meant to tell you that on the phone, but my hunger got the best of me. I love that your anniversary is the same as Bobby's birthday, I can't ever forget it. Plus, your birthday is the same as Scott's.

I hope you have a wonderful evening.
