How can I put this? He is the backbone of this family. He is what keeps us going. When I'm 'down', when I'm stressed, when I'm worried, he is always there, always supportive, always loving and caring. He is the husband and father I always knew he would be, plus so much more than I ever thought possible!
Here's a quick look back over the past seven years of our lives together, and just a few pictures of the man I love:
This is one of my favorites, for obvious reasons.
When it was just the 'three of us'.
This is also one of my favorites. Joel with Eli. Doesn't he look so proud to be holding his oldest son? And just a side note here: When they first handed me Eli after he was born, the very first thing I thought was "Oh my goodness! He looks just like Joel!" And as the years go by, he looks more and more like his Daddy, and I couldn't be happier :)

Happy Birthday to my Love!
