For 12 years you have been my everything! I love you more today than I ever thought I could! You have been my rock and my peace. I love that I have never seen you angry and I love that you don't fall into the "norm." You are the perfect compliment to me. I thank God everyday for that "Band trip" and the moment that something "clicked" for us. I cannot wait to make you a daddy...you are going to be more wonderful than you know! Thank you for loving me, spoiling me, and treating me better than I deserve. I am so in love with you, Ben Stephens!!!!
With all my love,
