9 Photos For Our 9th Valentine's Day

Happy Valentine's Day!  In honour of the Day of Love, I wanted to share a love letter about my darling husband Jeremy. 

Without ever saying so, Jer has always encouraged me to 100% be myself, without apology.  Jer leads by example without knowing.  He's funny, passionate, loyal, protective, smart, creative, accepting, respectful and reliable, among countless other amazing qualities.  You know that saying, "Carry yourself in such a way so that if someone talks bad about you others won't believe it"?  That's Jeremy.  He's such stand-up guy that anyone would question negative talk about him.  Jeremy rocks my world but never seeks attention for it.  He is authentically himself and I am honoured to be his wife.  I am proud to be on his arm, to have his last name and to be his family.  

To celebrate our ninth Valentine's Day together, here are nine photos:
This was taken by our friend Jess in 2006 before we did a few months of long distance.  I moved away for work and it was not easy...but worthwhile in the end!
This was our first big trip together in 2006.  We went to Philadelphia to see my brother and his girlfriend (now our sister in law!).  We spent a few days in New York and this was taken on the top of the Empire State Building.
This is one of my favourite photos of us.  It was taken the day after Jeremy's dad and step-mom's wedding. 
This was one of our most fun dates!  We went to a Red Wings game in Vancouver.  I have never been stared down so hard in the ladies room.  Don't like my jersey? 
One of my absolute favourite things to do is to make this guy laugh.  He in turn makes me laugh too.  A lot. 
Best. Day. Ever. May 2009.
Our honeymoon in Jamaica.  Paradise.
Jeremy as a father is an intense love and role model that makes me tear up it is so fierce.  Thomas is incredibly lucky to call this man Dad.  Being a parent is the hardest things we've ever done and Jeremy is a steady, loving and supportive teammate.  Team Unstoppable.  
To the Love of My Life, thank you for nine wonderful Valentines.  Here's to decades more.
