I write this edition of the newsletter on my fourth wedding
anniversary while my pregnant wife is taking a nap. Hard to believe
four years have gone by this quickly, all the change thatís taken
place in our lives since 2007, and the fact that weíre awaiting the
arrival of our third child. Thereís no crystal ball in the world I
would have believed 10 years ago if it had told me the story of my
life that was to unfold. Many, many good things have happened during
that timeframe, a good number of which I must attribute to my wife.
Happy Anniversary, Heather, and I love you!
