happy anniversary

Today is our actual anniversary!  When we wed we had a video slide show at our rehearsal dinner and the last song on the video was Guy Clark & Emmy Lou Harris singing I Don't Love You Much Do IYou should download it… it's a good one.  Today I still feel like the luckiest woman in the world to have found someone who loves me just as I am.  He's the most hard-working, creative, funny, brilliant, sensitive, witty, intelligent, generous man I know… I am so blessed to call him my husband.  I know it sounds totally cliche but he completes me.  He understands me.  It also feels wonderful to have someone that I am genuinely proud of!  He is definitely my very best friend.  Chance, I love you and look forward to many more years with you… the best is yet to come!


Some day I'll tell you how he proposed… you'd be fighting me for him, so I'll save it for later.


I don’t love you much do I
Just more than human tongue can tell and that's all
I don’t love you much do I
Remember how I kissed you in the hall

See how it sparkles in my eyes
I couldn’t hide it if I tried- that’s right
I don’t love you much do I
Just more than anything else in this whole world
I don’t love you much do I
Just more than all the stars in the sky
I don’t love you much do I
I think you hung the moon and that’s alright

I don’t love you much do I
You can feel it all the way across the room
I don’t love you much do I
Like the spring doesn’t make the flowers bloom
I don’t love you much do I
I'd follow you to hell and back again
I don’t love you much do I
Just watch me light up when you walk in

    Hey Erika,
    I am a fellow Auburn grad and found your blog through…well, I can’t remember who, but someone! I was browsing (by the way, I ADORE your style) and came across a picture from Round Top of old baseballs. I’d like to do a bookshelf project for my husband (his grandfather was a professional baseball player) and am trying to find some old baseballs (cheap as possible). I thought it was going to be as easy as Ebay, but so far no luck. Just wanted to put the bug in your ear (strange term) in case you come across anymore.

    and, yes – you should prepare to place Chance in some sort of fabulous husbands protection program if you do decide to share his proposal with the world wide web. someone would definitely be out to steal him.

  22. My Dear, you are correct the best is yet to come. Words cannot express my feelings for you. I will do everything I can to make sure you have sweet words like these to say about us for all the years to come.
    Love you and Happy Anniversary,
