to the extended vows dedicated to the one and only Jillian Marie Curran (soon to be Jillian Marie Grant once all the paperwork is done and Genuine works out the inevitable kinks).....
It's clear how much of an impact your family has had on who you have become. From day 1, you all have made me feel welcome and like family and I can't extend my gratitude more.
Rowan, Eliot, and now Greer have filled my heart in a way I did not think was possible.
Thanks to you and your family, I now understand the value of a Sport-brella and trekking to the beach before breakfast to claim our territory for a day of shutting the box.
Or a bike ride, or a dance session, or a porch beer.... the list goes on.
I still don't know how you pulled this one off, but it's great.
Because of you, I've graduated from Lee Chen's and Domino's and cherish our time picking out recipes and making them together while bumping tunes.
I can always count on two things: you asking everyone those 3 key questions on their birthday, and you and Kathleen ALWAYS stretching out that last line of the Happy Birthday song.
Our first real time we got to know each other. A spontaneous drink after work turned into dinner, which turned into trivia, which turned into Bob cheating to win us first place.
Freaking out as our dune buggies went up and down near-90-degree grades on the petrified dunes in Moab.
Never have I thought we were going to be murdered more than in that tent in Zion....then two days later when Dwight Schrute's family stared us down in sync with a Dolly Parton song.
"These aren't my parents!" as I eye contact with several questioning adults.
The toughness, persistence, and discipline you showed throughout this process is astounding and you deserve all the credit. I am forever thankful to have you as a partner.
I'll never forget my first year with you observing Katherine's anniversary when you showed up with a purple calla lilly.
Never has a bench been more interesting....oh also we got engaged in a f'n treehouse.
Enough said. But also let's not forget how you laughed at the floppy used car inflatable balloon guys for 10 minutes straight.
