15 YEARS AND LOVIN' EVERY MINUTE OF IT!

Edited to add: FACT#3 - My husbands nickname for me is Sana(pronounced Sauna) - when we were dating, I told him that is what my sister called me when we were little because she could not pronounce Alexandra. He has called me that every since, teasing me with my childhood nickname!
Hi all! Today is my 15th year anniversary - yep, I have been married to the wonderful man in this picture for fifteen of the best years of my life! I hear wives complaining about their husbands all the time, never having anything good to say, but I have to tell you, Tony is my best friend and I love being around him and doing things with him! In fact, when he is away, I feel like a piece of me goes with him! So, I am happy to celebrate this fabulous occasion with him! Okay, enough of getting sappy! I made him a special card that I will share with you all here today BUT there is a message on the top inside of the card that I edited in on photoshop just for this post because I know he is going to be reading my blog today and I want him to see it - teehee! So, here it is! This is a very simple card with a very simple message - love. And, I do, with all my heart! And, here is the inside!



Yes, I call my husband Hoss and have for years. Corny I know, but so what - he loves it! And, tonight he is taking me out to dinner but won't tell me where, just that he has it all planned! So, I cannot wait - I will share with you all tomorrow! Until then, here is the recipe for the card!
