Today I Love You . . .

A few months ago I started posting little notes around my desk at BlueCross to remind myself why I loved being married to Danny Stiller. I wanted to appreciate the little things he does for me that make our marriage work. I wanted to have visual reminders when things were tough why I loved him and how he loved me. I wanted to save up a bunch of little sticky notes, so one day I could look back on our time in Columbia and smile. And, I wanted to smother his dashboard in love for him to find when he went to work in the morning.

Today was that day, and today I love . . .
