We've been through some tough times where I was sure his goals didn't coincide with mine, but we've made it though and 9 years later, we are better partners than ever.

So... here comes my revelation, and it's not one that probably means anything to anyone else but me, but I needed a blog topic for this Monday!

p.s. We'll be doing a pretty cool t-shirt fundraiser for the Duke show - details to be announced soon!
