On their anniversary, Nick wrote:
10 years ago today this woman made me the happiest man in the world and she has never stopped. Maybe it is her beautiful smile or her fiery red hair OR it could be the fact that she is the best mother in the world OR the fact that she is a bad ass powerful woman. Oh I know, it could be the way she supports and loves anyone in her world OR how amazing her work ethic is for every job she has ever had. It could for sure be the way she runs our family OR how she balances family life on top of being busy as hell with #sweetmagnolias and @thehappyplace! It could definitely be any of those things along with A LOT more. All I know is that my life changed when she came into it and the girls and I are lucky to have her as the leader of our tribe.
Jo, you are my partner in everything I do, the best role model I could have dreamed of for our girls and my absolute best friend! You have made every day of the last decade better than the one before! I love you!😘 Happy 10th anniversary!
JoAnna hasn’t had an easy year. On March 1, her mother passed away just two weeks after her grandmother died.
