We are all a little weird and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love. To 5 years and many more! Love you a hole punch!

My husband … Nick Brain

Over time our life's journey will change, much like OUR bulb on this bridge will change colors. But, through all those color changes that life throws our way, may OUR bulb be a constant reminder for us to never allow our passion for each other to grow dim. And, just like OUR bulb that will shine bright during the darkness, may OUR bulb also remain a consistent beacon for our hearts and souls, to be able to find comfort and peace within the love we have for each other. I love you now, forever and always !!!
