Dear John...

No, this isn't THAT kind of Dear John!! In fact, it is the opposite.

There is one person who is part of our team who doesn't get a whole lot of credit. 

We had two weddings this weekend. And as I ran about the house, charging batteries, cleaning lenses, reviewing notes and answering emails, my husband was making me an omelet and filling my water bottle. He knew I'd need a good hearty breakfast because I'd be on my feet all day, and wouldn't be getting dinner until late.

Then while I was out photographing the weddings, he was cleaning the house and walking the dogs.

When I got home, he carried in my heavy camera case and poured me a drink.  Then, while I'm stretching in the middle of the floor, he listened as I relayed the highlights of the day, even though he was in the middle of a good movie.

So as another successful wedding weekend concludes, I am thankful for the support and love of my husband. I am able to do this job that I love because of you. I stay hydrated and sane because of you.

You are more than I deserve and I appreciate you. I don't know how else to say this, but I love you and am eternally grateful for all you do.

John, you are mine forever.  Happy belated 5th Anniversary! Love, Lori
