Twenty

Twenty years ago today was our first date.  How is it possible that more of my life has been spent WITH YOU than without you?

I love you so much, Scott...
May 24, 1997

I love the way you complete my sentences before I even know what I want to say.

I love the way you call me "CAM" and I call you "CAM" all the damn time, especially in the grocery store when it is most awkward you say it suuuuuper loud & low (super bass!) to try to find me.  Yes, we're freaks.  (get your minds out of the gutters!)  (though I love that, too!  HA!)

I love that you actually play me in Abble Dabble (Scrabble) on the iPhone, & I'm sorry you chose "Capricorn" as your screen name.  (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!  I'll be honest, you guys, he's REALLY good at this game and has beat me like the last 3 games we have played by over 150 points each.  We're SUPER competitive, talk shit on each other constantly, and I fear we've passed that competitive gene onto our son.  YIKES!)

I love that you sleep with Claire in your arms every single night & don't sleep as well if she's not there.

I love that you and Lola regularly kick Cal's ass in ping pong.  I am pretty sure Mrs. Pocket is undefeated against Cal, yet when just you and Cal play, Cal sometimes wins?!  Polly Ann is your good luck charm.

I love that you have devoted so much time to coaching Cal's basketball teams over the years.  He really loves playing for you, and you are a fantastic coach.

I love that you help me with the dwarves at night when I'm sleep deprived and exhausted and just need my space.

I love that you have worlds of patience in situations where my fuse is short.

I love that you balance out my need to talk with your listening for as long as I need, you offer good advice, and you support me with whatever I am going through.

I love that you are The Shit Whisperer 'round the clock (so I don't have to be)!

I love that you bust your ass for our family at work so I can be home to take care of our girls.

I love our "infinity" ring tattoos.

I love the way I feel so secure and protected when you hug me...like nothing in the whole, wide world could ever take that feeling away because together we can conquer ANYTHING.

I love that we laugh over and over again, every single day!  You are the funniest person on the planet!  I love the way your mind works, and I *love* that you're a smart ass.

I love your potty mouth.  (and yes, yours might quite possibly be worse than mine...if that's possible!)

I love the way your ass looks in jeans!!!!!  Not those 1998 ancient Old Navy ones though... (HA!) but those hot Big Star jeans.  Yum!

I love that you started your own business, having never blown glass before in your entire life, and you said, "I am GOING to be good at this." You totally made that happen, babe.  You inspire me.

I love that you're such a people person.  No matter where we go, you fit right in, make everyone laugh, and we have barrels of fun together.

I love that you keep me grounded during difficult times.  You remind me that there are no accidents.  You give me hope.

I love going to movies with you and holding hands like we're 16 again.

I love that you're so crafty & can build damn near anything.  Where did you learn to do that?!

I love that you love our dogs as if they were our kids, because they SO ARE.  And it touched my heart and made me bawl & love you even more that you were man enough to cry when we lost Halley last year.  I miss her so much, our first baby...

Cal & Hal

I love that you always put your family first in ALL situations ~ we SO appreciate it.

I love that you are intelligent and work hard to accomplish your dreams.

I love that God blessed us with three amazing children, each of whom brings something amazing and different and PERFECT to the table.

I love that you have embraced THIS LIFE, realize the gifts we've been given, and celebrate uniqueness.

I LOVE YOU, SCOTT. 

More than you will probably ever know.

Thank you for the best 20 years of my life to date.

Love ∞,
Gwen

OK I'm sold. I love you too, Scott!

What nice words, Gwen. But more than words, they are from the heart.
If you ever want to know what a person is truly all about, watch how they love animals.

Awww, Gwen, you made me cry:) You two are so cute! Scott sounds so much like my Steve, wish they could meet... I think they'd be great friends. He always makes me laugh and is never too macho. We have been together 14 years and I swear I love him more everyday. Love much, life is short:)
