My beautiful wife!

To date, I (Jared) haven't made a post to this blog since its inception, but this being Valentine's Day seems to be an appropriate occasion for my first time.

I wanted to leave a post for all to see, but not in an obnoxious "Tom Cruise on Oprah" type fashion or in a cheesy "blare your radio (or iPod with big speakers) outside her window" way either. Blog posting is subtle enough to where it get the point across to those who elect to be interested, and in a way that is not in your face. Most of you who follow this blog know how special Courtney is, but I just wanted to take a minute to express my appreciation and love for her too.

She is the type of person that just by knowing her makes life worth while. She has a contagious smile and laugh that can brighten your day. She notices the little things that make you feel special, which is a big thing in itself. I love her big heart and sense of compassion that she has for others. I love that she is proud of who she is and that she is not afraid to show that. Courtney is a wonderful mother and it makes me so happy to see in my kids eyes how much they love her. And as the title of this post has already stated, my wife is beautiful. I still marvel at how someone as goofy looking as me got so lucky! I also marvel at the times when she doesn't see that about herself and how she could miss something so obvious and apparent, but speaking for all males...we do that quite a bit. I could go on and on but in the interest of time and blog posting capacity which would be exhausted I'll end on this note. I've been very blessed to be married to her. I love her dearly.

Jared, what nice guy you are! But I know you did not want this post to be about how nice you are so I will note that I think COurtney is wonderful too! I have known you (Jared) for a very long time and I am glad to see you so happy and well taken care of.
