Our Wedding Anniversary.

To my husband.
Several Chapters of my life, were written before I found you. Now, they feel like the character creating back story, which lead to the unveiling of my plot. I have NEVER believed, Two people become One, on their wedding day. A marriage, where you lose your own self, within their story... is not the connection, I had imagined for myself.
When I married you, our stories became intertwined. Into a beautifully written and complicated 'series' of shared experiences.
Today, I dedicate this song, to you...


The Story... by Brandi Carlile

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true... I was made for you

I climbed across the mountain tops
Swam all across the ocean blue
I crossed all the lines and I broke all the rules
But baby I broke them all for you
Because even when I was flat broke
You made me feel like a million bucks
Like, You do...
I was made for you

You see the smile that's on my mouth
It's hiding the words that don't come out
And all of my friends who think that I'm blessed
They don't know my head is a mess
No, they don't know who I really am
And they don't know what
I've been through like you do
And I was made for you...

All of these lines across my face
Tell you the story of who I am
So many stories of where I've been
And how I got to where I am
But these stories don't mean anything
When you've got no one to tell them to
It's true... I was made for you


So often, you are the main character of our story, as you shine much brighter than I. Except, the trait which has always made you unique, is the joy you find in other peoples happiness. Thank-you, for always trying to help me, feel like more.
I look forward, to reading the rest of us....
Happy Anniversary, Coach.
