Simple Sunday - My Best Friend

~ SO thankful for the fact that, on this day 12 years ago, I married this man...
...he meant the world to me then, and he means even more now...he's truly my best friend and so much more...he blows past my expectations of what a good husband should be and leaves them in the dust as he pursues excellence...he's amazing, and I am forever grateful for the gift of his love!...happy anniversary, Schmu!!!

I am my beloved's, and my beloved is mine...
Song of Solomon 6:3

Wedding pictures and memories can be found here, in the post I wrote last year for our anniversary.

Is Schmu your secret nickname for your hubba!?

Davene said...

Yes, Chris, it is my nickname (one of them) for him. But it's no secret. I've used it before-- :)

Happy Anniversary!

OH! I'm sorry. I don't know how I missed those two posts! Is there any history connected to the nickname? Is it Hebrew or something? Or just a lovey-dovey made-up nickname?

Davene said...

Thanks, Bonnie! :)

Chris, I've used that nickname for Jeff for so long that I can't even remember the origin. It's not a specific Hebrew word, just a made-up nickname. He's Schmu, I'm Schmo, and the kids are all some variation of that (with different vowels). But we don't really use the nicknames for the kids, just the ones for each other. Maybe Jeff remembers how and when we got started with those nicknames better than I do! :)
