BC: I love you D Love, Suzanne Corrow
FC: Derek & Suzanne
1: "Lord knows we've had our share of fights, our sleepless nights, our ups and downs.We've had plenty and then some of baby I'm gone and turnarounds. Sometimes i swear it might be easier to throw in the towel. But someday we're gonna look back and say look at us now. And that's why I keep on loving you." I love you Derek, forever and always.
3: Derek James | "You're beautiful, every little piece love, don't you know. You're really gonna be someone, ask anyone. When you find everything you looked for, I hope your life leads you back to my door. Oh but if it don't, stay beautiful."
4: Suzanne Teresa
5: "She's as pretty as a picture, every bit as funny as she is smart. Got a smile that'll hold you together, and a touch that'll tear you apart. When she's yours she brings the sunshine, when she's gone the world goes dark. Yeah she's heaven on the eyes But boy she's hell on the heart."
6: Our first house together Clear Lake, WA June 2010
7: "She was in the backyard, say it was a little past nine, when her prince pulled up, a white pickup truck. Her folks should of seen it comin' it was only just a matter of time. Plenty old enough, and you can't stop love. She stuck a note on the screen door "Sorry but I got to go" that was all she wrote, her mama's heart was broke. That was all she wrote, so the story goes."
8: Derek's high school graduation June 2010 | "All that I'm after is a life full of laughter, as long as I'm laughing with you. I'm thinking that all that still matters is love ever after, after the life we've been through. 'Cause I know there's no life after you."
9: Congrats Derek!
10: Derek's graduation & birthday party June 2010
11: "I'm sure that you've heard those three words from others and they fell flat. But this ring ain't something I mean to give you and then take back. I'm a little more country than that."
12: Fishing at Sig's "Cocoa Puff Lake"
13: "You and me going fishing in the dark, lying on our backs and counting the stars where the cool grass grows. Down by the river in the full moon light we’ll be falling in love in the middle of the night, just moving slow. Staying the whole night through, feels so good to be with you"
14: Bear hunting on Jackman August 2010
15: "Mossy oak swamp bottom, dew drop fallin’, an old Tom answering a hoot owls callin’. Nothing like the sound when the day breaks, me and my baby in the woods on a Saturday."
16: Winthrop "camping" April 2010
17: "Out in the sticks with the squirrels and the ticks and my 30-06, I'm running out of Miller Lite. Trucks in park, the dog won't bark, couple hours till dark, wishing one would walk by, might as well left my gun in the gun rack. Been here all day all I've killed is a twelve pack. Sitting here waiting on a deer, drinking beer and wasting bullets. Aiming at the empties, missing, hitting pine trees. It ain't my fault them cans keep moving. My baby's on the phone saying 'baby come home, where you been and what you been doing?' We'll I've been, sitting here, waiting on a deer, drinking beer and wasting bullets."
18: Mt. Baker November 2010
19: "She's pretty as a field of daisies, she's sweeter than watermelon wine. Way hotter than then Alabama asphalt and when I get her in these arms of mine, Lord have mercy I love her kisses. Man I can't get enough; Kinda like chicken and biscuits."
20: "Come on somebody, why don't you run? Ol' Red's itching to have a little fun. Got my lantern, Got my gun, Red'll have you treed before the morning comes."
22: Baby Declan | "Once upon a time, I believe it was a Tuesday when I caught your eye, and we caught onto something. I hold onto the night, you looked me in the eye and told me you loved me."
23: Baby Georgia | "I was here when you said forever and always."
24: "Do you remember, we were sitting there by the water; you put your arm around me, for the first time. You made a rebel of a careless man's careful daughter. You are the best thing that's ever been mine."
27: "She said 'hey boy, do you mind taking me home tonight? 'Cause I ain't ever seen a country boy with tires on his truck this high.' I said 'climb on up but honey watch the cup where I’m spiting my dip inside' Hold on tight 'cause it's gonna be wilder than any 8 second ride."
28: "Well I’ve been saved by the grace of Southern charm. I got a mouth like a sailor and yours is more like a Hallmark card. And if you wanna pick a fight, well I’m gonna have to say goodnight. I don’t have to be hateful, I can just say bless your heart."
30: "Woke up face down in a cheap motel; had a King James Bible, a musty smell, and a Jim Beam bottle laying on the bed with a lipstick note saying "I hope you ain't dead." "Call me later if you wanna party," Signed: "Susan." I need to make a resolution."
33: "Some days I don’t feel like trying, some days you know I wanna just give up. When it doesn’t matter who’s right, fight about it all night, and I've had enough, you give me that look 'I’m sorry baby let’s make up'. And you do that thing that makes me laugh, and just like that, there you go making my heart beat again, heart beat again. I'm stuck on you, stuck like glue."
35: "I remember you were driving to my house in the middle of the night, I'm the one who makes you laugh when you know you're about to cry. I know your favorite songs and you tell me about your dreams. I think I know where you belong. I think I know it's with me. Ya, you belong with me."
36: "Are you gonna kiss me or not, are we gonna do this or what? I think you know I like you a lot but you’re about to miss your shot. Are you gonna kiss me or not? It was the best dang kiss that I’d ever had, except for that long one after that. And I knew if I wanted this thing to last, sooner or later I’d have to ask for your hand. So I took a chance, bought a wedding band and I got down on one knee. You smiled and said to me, are you gonna kiss me or not?"
38: "Be a best friend, tell the truth, and overuse 'I Love You'. Go to work, do your best, don't outsmart your common sense. And never let your praying knees get lazy and love like crazy. Always treat your woman like a lady, never get to old to call her baby. And never let your praying knees get lazy and love like crazy."
41: "I love good cold beer and mustard on my fries. I love a good loud honkey tonk that rocks on Friday night and hell yes, I love my truck. But I want you to know honey, I love your love the most. I love scuffed up cowboy boots and broken torn up jeans, my 4-wheel drive and 8 point bucks and rocky road ice cream. And hell yes I love my dog, and Jack D in my Coke. But honey I love your love, yea I love your love the most."
42: "You make me smile like the sun, fall out of bed, sing like bird, dizzy in my head, spin like a record crazy on a Sunday night. You make me dance like a fool, forget how to breathe, shine like gold, buzz like a bee. Just the thought of you can drive me wild. Oh, you make me smile."
