Thank you for the gifts you continuously give me. Our daughter(s), a home to come home to, good advice and love. I wouldn't be able to function without your help and I know you have forced me to be better than I ever thought I could be,
I love you Sara. My wish for you is yet another day of naps, and "I'm ok, I'm alright"

Us as a couple
As a couple, we are a partnership of unique individuals who are similar in enough areas that our differences make us more interesting to one another. Through this, we have balance.
In this partnership we try to be each others friend and support (not just husband or wife) though communication and understanding.
Our intelligence and social consciousness help us to communicate not just on a personal level but about the world and how we relate to it individually and as a couple. We both use these aspects as teachers and mentors in an attempt to pass this understanding on to others.
We are both creators, be it in art, the theatre or software. This constant creativity ensures our non-destructive behavior, which is an environment for positive change and reflection. We have both been taught to seek out the beauty and potential in people and situations and to foster them rather than seek to destroy or harm them; so even through out roughest moments we are looking for ways to improve rather than tear down.
Our willingness to improve ourselves mentally and physically is another reflection of our creativity and it ensures a continuous cycle of challenge, change and self-fulfillment.
Finally, our playfulness is an important part of us being a couple. Because we know how to have fun we can help each other to let go of our frivolous anger, frustration and depression (although, admittedly, sometimes it is a struggle).
Oh, yeah, and God Damn, are we funny.
