He’s my business partner. My best friend. He gives me the last bite of his ice cream. He loves me unconditionally. He prays for me. He always has just the right things to say when I’m upset or frustrated or beat down. He’s the only one that can make me laugh until I cry. He’s honest with me, and even lets me know when my work isn’t the greatest – which I appreciate it, even when it’s hard to hear. He loves our boys. He wants to go live in a tiny house with me while we give our lives to our callings and passions.

Today I celebrate seven years with the man I love. I can’t imagine spending my life with anyone else. Even through the rough times, it’s always been truth – God put us together – and we are inseparable. I love you Kent Shaffer.
