Almost Paradise...

Okay, so that's a really corny song, but somehow I love it. It sounds cornier as a blog post title, though. Regardless, four years ago today, Aaron and I were married. Last night:
Aubrey: Can you believe we've been married almost 4 years?
Aaron: It feels like for-e-ver.
Aubrey: I hate you.
Aaron: I'm funny.
And then he sends me this today...they are gorgeous!
Really, though, we've been married FOUR YEARS! It's gone so fast, and I don't even know how. I'm so blessed to be married to Aaron. He's made me so much better over the years. I can make decisions now all on my own (even though I hate it). I am more open-minded with people. I don't yell so much when I'm angry. And it's not because he buys me nice gifts once in a while or surprises me with dinner and things like daisies he picked from the garden (my favorite). I want to be a better wife because he is such a darn good husband. A brat like me doesn't deserve a guy like him.

Honeymoon...the people at the bar in our hotel found out we were just married and bought two bottles of top-notch champagne, one for everyone there, and one for just us. Then the bartender sent strawberries up to our room. See, people can be nice in big cities.

I love you, Aaron. I love everything about our marriage. It's such a shame when people get divorced because I think about how lucky I was to find you the first time around and I wish they would find someone so perfect the first time, too. Thank you for dinner and the flowers and the vacation and a fantastic life with you. To 75 more!
