Yesterday was our 10th wedding anniversary. I cannot believe it's been 10 years already! And I mean that in a really good way.

10 years with this wonderful man has been great. Sure we've had our ups and downs, but through it all we've stuck together. I know that Matt always loves and adores me (and even find me incredibly sexy). And I do the same for him. He is a fantastic husband and father, and I couldn't ask for more.

We're so exciting that we celebrated our 10th anniversary by going out to a simple dinner with our son and then following that up with miniature golfing. Exciting stuff! But you know what, it didn't matter. Just spending some time together was nice.

We knew that we wouldn't be able to do anything big. We just got back from our vacation, so that was part of our anniversary gift in a way. We still would like to go out for a nice dinner alone, but we're going to wait a few weeks until Matt's parents can keep the kiddo. (They're in the midst of moving much closer to us.)

But I did get a nice surprise from Matt. He bought me a beautiful necklace. It was completely unexpected and thoughtful. He always spoils me.

To wrap up the wonderful 10 successful years of marriage, I will offer some tips to a great marriage (because mine is truly great!). Enjoy!

Tips for a great marriage
  1. Listen to each other, take the time to truly listen.
  2. Hug and kiss each day.
  3. Say "I love you"...a lot!
