Friends Make The Best Husbands!

Today Rondell and I have been married for 8 years! We were friends for a year before we started dating and that friendship has remained throughout our entire marriage. It is was gets us through our arguments, it is what makes spending time together fun, it is why we survived my postpartum depression battle, it is the reason we'll be married forever. He is that friend that I can tell everything to and who has seen me in my weakest and strongest moments. I wouldn't trade our friendship for anything...it's what I love about us!

Happy Anniversary Friend...I LOVE YOU! (Ooh look Ron...Giants colors!)

You can read about our other anniversaries here and here.

What a sweet post. I have always maintained in my life that my husband is my best friend. It's awesome to be married to your best friend. And his best guy friend is married to my best girl friend. Pretty neat huh?
