To the love of my life...

Hello fans & readers of Ashley's blog. I'd like to begin this blog post with a disclaimer. While the URL might lead you to believe that I have a prominent role in the wit and brilliance of the content shared on this site, this as you know is far from the truth. In fact this is my first time every writing here. Might I also suggest that given my Monday-Thrusday absence from the family over the past 6 months, leaving Ashley week-after-week alone at home to fare for herself with our 3 very energetic children, a more apt title for the blogpost might be "AshleyHarrisFamilyWithoutTodd.blogspot.com"
But, before I dig my self to deep here, I'd like to change topics to let you all know how lucky of a person I count myself to be. When I met Ashley 8 years ago and asked her to marry me, I thought she was cute and would be a devoted companion and mother. I could never have imagined at that time how much I would grow to adore her. Not only has she become more beautiful to me everyday, but I never imagined how much I would cherish her companionship and how wonderful of a mom she would turn out to be. I think my mom stated is best calling her a "pioneer" for what she takes on everyday with those boys of ours - I might add she's a little more stylish then how you typically picture a pioneer. So, in honor of her (drum roll please) 28TH BIRTHDAY please join me in honoring this special person on this special day. ASH, I LOVE YOU! THANK YOU FOR BEING SO WONDERFUL!!!

Do I get points if I'm the first male to comment on this? Very smooth Todd. Have a great day Ashley - you deserve it!

I recognized you when I first met you as a great man who would appreciate my daughter's unique qualities and strengths. She is one of my heroes, too. I think you two make a great pair. You bring out the best in each other. Now, if you will just show up at home now and then. But that's what these years are all about. Ashley can handle it with style, as long as she is allowed an occasional meltdown. Happy Birthday, Ashley. I love you,too.

Oh my gosh Todd. Husband of the year! (except for this little traveling thing you do). That was adorable and brought tears to my eyes because I love you both. Happy Birthday Ash, I wish so much I could have come up to celebrate. Why don't you come to NYC for a girls weekend and we will celebrate at the Ritz. Love you.
