Yeah, I work out. Its no big deal.

This is Leah and I, circa 2002. Why she was attracted to this at all is a mystery to me. In this picture we had gone to Teen Mania to see the band Switchfoot and probably because I have a lot against Teen Mania, I felt compelled to take my shirt off and do whatever jackasses do to get laughs from their friends and the girl they have a crush on.

This is us about a year later in the Opry hotel in Nashville. She came to visit me there and I decided to tell her I loved her and make her my girlfriend. It was the first in the long line of good decisions I made that turned my life into what I wanted it to be. Which is to say, happy and whole.

Today marks the 6 year anniversary of that day. Six years, and I have never been bored. Six years, and I still love seeing her name on my caller ID. I'm pretty sure there would be no war if everyone in the world got to have what we have.

I sure do love her.


  1. first off, you make me the happiest person in the galaxy.
    second off, we were at teen mania for april's graduation.

  2. Parents are happy when their children find love! Happy Anniversary!
    Love you both & Harper, of course!
