    growth
    through laughs and woes
    highs and lows
    she stood by me
    and stayed down
    with 10 toes

    them pedicured roots
    kept us planted
    hell we’ve been through
    but survived the hail damage
    rain might have fallen
    but we just kept standing
    maturity kept us grounded
    values keep us established

    nothing too lavish
    but so middle classy
    wrestled with money
    tag teaming finances
    double-up income
    got us changing tax brackets
    shopping for something brick
    home doesn’t come in plastic

    for real
    words can’t express what she did for my heart
    even expanded my vocabulary
    from mine to our’s
    she's the reason we made it thus far
    she’ll be the first to drive my dream car

    her love was race ready
    the pace is life steady
    we’ve survived the speed bumps
    they slowed us down
    just enough to appreciate how far we’ve come
    check our track record
    we’ve built momentum
    forever is at the finish line
    lookout...here we come

    so here’s to lemonade
    and lawnmowers
    that means minding our own grass
    & enjoying the lush color
    going green with love
    such an organic moment
    don’t look now babe
    but here comes the Jonses
    trying to keep up
