Today Gabe and I have been married for six years. Wow, a lot has changed in those six years. While a lot has changed, one thing still remains the same. I still love that man with all my heart.

Does that mean that life is rainbows, roses, and butterflies? Nope... But I CAN tell you this... I couldn't imagine treading through this crazy life with anyone other than my bestfriend, soulmate, and love of my life.

He is my rock, and my confidant. We some how always manage to make some tasty lemonade when life gives us lemons. And this year we celebrate the best tasting lemonade ever: Noah Warren & Aaden Parker. Having this new lemonade in our lives has brought boat loads of happiness and smiles, and also healed some very broken hearts. But we have also been given a different variety of lemons in our life now. We are still learning how to be the best parents, the best spouse, the best employee, and still make time for eachother and our marriage.

Today on our anniversary, we will make the plunge to our new home. We hope to stay the night in our new home and mark this new year with a new journey with our sweet cups of lemonade right by our side.

On our wedding day I vowed to be his best friend and Mother of his children, well it looks like we finally made it.

Happy Anniversary to a man who can always make me laugh, a man whos smile can brighten my day, a man whos glow from enjoying his sons melts my heart, a man whom I am honored to call my husband.

While deep in the thick of our IF journey Gabe played a song from me to keep me motivated and promised me that we were "headed for a better life."

Better Life - By: Keith Urban
Friday night and the moon is high,
I'm wide awake just watchin' you sleep
And I promise you you're gonna have,
More than just the things that you need
We ain't got much now, we're just starting out
But I know somehow paradise is coming.

Chorus :
Someday baby,
You and I are gonna be the ones, good luck's gonna shine
Someday baby,
You and I are gonna be the ones, so hold on, we're headed for a better life.

Oh now theres a place for you and me,
Where we can dream as big as the sky.
I know its hard to see it now,
But baby someday we're gonna fly,
This road we're on, you know it might be long,
But my faith is strong, its all that really matters.

repeat Chorus:

So hold on, hold on, c'mon baby, hold on,
Yeah we're gonna have it all, and ooh

repeat chorus twice :

A better life now, oh ho, a better life
Hey we're gonna leave this all behind us baby, wait and see.
We're headed for a better life, you and me.
We're gonna break the chains that bind and, finally we'll be free.
We're gonna be the ones that have it all, you and me.
Just hold on tight now baby, woooh

He was right, we do have more than just the things that I need, we have reached our own little paradise, and good luck finally did shine. We got our better life, and while it's a crazy life, I sure as heck couldn't ask for much more.

Happy six year anniversary to the love of my life!

I can still see you two dancing to these lyrics, six years ago today <3

(You're still the one)
You're still the one I run to
The one that I belong to
You're the one I want for life
(You're still the one)
You're still the one that I love
The only one I dream of
You're still the one I kiss good night


MAMA aka MIMA <3
