It has been 4 years since that April 7th when Maddie Spohr left this world. 4 years. I just can’t put into words how sad and unbelievable that is. You are missed and remembered Maddie.
Today I will honor Miss Maddie by thinking about Heather, Mike and Annie and sending lots of love to them on this very difficult day. I will honor her by remembering what a wonderful little girl she was. I will honor her by wearing purple and thinking about all the lives she touched in her short life and all the lives she still touches on a daily basis.
Please take a moment on this Sunday to think about the amazing Maddie and send some love to her parents and little sister. Lets surround them with love so they know we all remember their special little girl.
14 years ago today I married my best friend, my true love. We were two extremely young
kids adults with hearts full of love and dreams about the future. We didn’t know what the future held for us. We didn’t know where the road we were starting out on led. What we did know was that we loved each other and no matter where we were headed or what obstacles laid in our way we’d be okay because we had each other.
If I could go back to October 12, 1998 and whisper in the ear of my young self I would tell myself that 14 years later I’d still be totally in love with the man I’m about to marry and we would have two gorgeous little girls and an incredible life. I would tell myself that life was going to turn out even better than I could imagine and that life was going to be full of adventure and happiness and most of all love.
Lorne I love you. I love the incredible life we have built together and the family we have become. May the future be as great as the last 14 years have been. Happy Anniversary babe!

On this day, 12 years ago, I married my high school sweetheart, the love of my life, my soulmate.
We were just two goofy young kids, in love, ready to start our lives together. We stood on the doorstep of adulthood together.
Ours is a traditional girl meets boy, girl falls in love with boy, boy eventually falls in love with girl and boy and girl live happily ever after, love story. A story I’m proud and happy and grateful to be apart of every single day.
19 years ago I met a boy. He was cute and smart and sweet and I knew from the moment I met him that we were destined to be more than friends. But, for quite sometime, I loved that boy from afar hoping he would one day return my affections, but too shy and embarrassed to do anything about it. Over the next couple of years we got to know each other a little better through our mutual friends. We were part of the same group of friends and found ourselves hanging out more and more. Then one day I discovered that the boy I had adored from afar for so long now felt the same for me. We started dating and the rest, is as they say, history.
Over four years after that fateful day me and that boy found ourselves standing together at the alter, exchanging vows and rings. 12 years later we are still very much in love. That boy that I met all those years ago in the hallway at school is now my husband, the father of my child, the man I am spending my forever with. That younger more naive me was right, she and that boy were destined to be more, much more.
Happy Anniversary, Babe! Here’s to many, many more wonderful years together.
