Truly can’t believe it’s been eight years since we said ‘I do.’ I mean it when I say that I married my best friend. Zach is my person, he knows me better than anyone and he is my partner in every sense of the word. His positivity is infectious and is exactly what this anxious girl needs in her life.

Zach was born to be a girl dad. He isn’t afraid to have his nails painted, wear bracelets or get his makeup done. He tells the girls how beautiful they are and that he loves them all day every day. He is very present and he does his part. From learning  how to do a ponytail to doing ballet to getting them dressed to dropping work to take one to the doctor. Our girls are the luckiest to call him theirs. I pray they find a Zach one day.

Zach and I definitely have our faults. We are so far from perfect. Marriage takes work, especially once you have kids. We call each other out, we tell it like it is, we annoy the sh*t out of each other, we don’t agree on everything but we always work it out. I wouldn’t trade our imperfections for anything.

You know how our kids are the worst version of themselves around us because they’re comfortable and safe? The same goes for wives towards their husbands. When I am at my lowest he gets the brunt of it but he never judges me for it and never uses it against me. That’s probably my favorite thing about Zach. His unwavering support. He loves me no matter what and never holds a grudge. He recognizes how hard motherhood is and swoops in every single time I’m at my lowest to help me pick up the  pieces. He is my biggest cheerleader, respects me and loves me just the way I am.

I’ll forever be grateful he is mine. For better or for worse, in sickness and in health, I will always love you Benjy!
