Had you told me 4 years ago that I would be married and expecting my first child before 30, I would have told you that you were cray cray and whacked you a good one in hopes of knocking some sense into you.

All my life, I said I was never going to get married. I was never going to be a Mom. I was going to be independent and take this world by storm. When I was 14, I asked my Mom if I could get a hysterectomy. Laugh all you like. I was dead serious. I sure the hell didn't have the desire to have a baby and I had no need for a man. Yes, I was just 14 but I was so sure that my life was going to be complete without a husband and child. 100% certain. I could take care of myself. Strong willed and detemined Stephanie was going to go solo.

That was until I meet James.

I know some people don't believe in soulmates. I was one of those people. But I've realize that soulmates do exsist and James is mine. James is everything I'm not. He balances me out. Really, he is my ying to his yang. We work, live, play in perfect harmony. He is smart, clever, witty and he has this amazing sense of humor. He can be sweet and sensitive and manly and bossy all at the same time. He gives 100% to the people he loves the most and puts in more time and effort than most when it comes to NH. He takes are of me and not in a sugar Daddy way. He makes sure I have want I need and what I want (within reason). He knows that telling me no isn't going to get either of us anywhere, but instead challenges me to see the pros and cons of every decision I make. He respects the fact that even as his wife, I need my independence, freedom. I've been like this since birth, he has accepted this trait, embraced it even. I am some what emotional and overly judgemental and James is always there to help calm me and point out that not everyone sees things my way. And when it cames down to it, he loves me. The me that is mean, rude and ugly along with the me that is humorous. generous and loving.

I have a perfect marriage and more importantly, a perfect husband. Yes, he is flawed and yes, we don't always see eye to eye but what we have, the love, the determination, the willpower, makes the bumps a little less bumpy.

I love my Mister. I thank God daily that I've been blessed with such an amazing man.
