Jared Kushner is celebrating 10 years of marriage with his wife Ivanka Trump today, but it was their daughter Arabella who saw him off to work on their milestone anniversary.
The 38-year-old White House senior adviser was followed by his eldest child and her dog, Winter, when he stepped out their Washington, D.C. home bright and early on Friday around 8 a.m.
While Ivanka wasn’t able to leave with her husband on the morning of their anniversary, she penned a gushing tribute to him and their decade-long marriage on Instagram.

The first daughter shared three photos from their wedding, which took place at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on October 25, 2009.
The first portrait shows Jared and Ivanka beaming for the camera. The second is a picture of them sharing a kiss underneath the fall foliage, and in the third, they are seen touching noses and smiling at each other.
‘Today marks a decade of marriage to my best friend and life partner: 3,652 days, 3 amazing, curious children, countless adventures, ups, downs, laughter, love and pastrami together,’ Ivanka captioned the images.
‘Everything about you is real, kind, humble and brave. You inspire me with your calm, stoic disposition and unwavering prioritization of that which matters most in life,’ she continued. ‘You are a dedicated public servant, amazing father and relentless optimist who never confuses a hard problem with one that is unsolvable.
‘Everything about me is revealed and known to you. You see all of me and love me for exactly who I am. I can be vulnerable with you, as well as strong and determined. I love you and dream of forever together.’

It already seems to be shaping up to be a special day for Jared, who enjoyed some quality time with his daughter on Friday morning.
Arabella was still in her pajamas when she walked outside with her dad while her dog trotted next to her on a leash.
Jared had his arm around his only daughter as they made their way to the Secret Service SUV waiting for him across the street.
The doting dad, who was dressed in his signature navy suit and tie, held the back of her head as he gave her one last goodbye before going to work, leaving her to head back inside with Winter.
Arabella’s dog was given to her for her eighth birthday on July 17, and she clearly takes her dog-walking responsibilities seriously.
She was also seen taking the pooch for a walk on Monday before she and her family headed to Friends of Lubavitch Synagogue to celebrate Shemini Atzeret.
Celebration: Jared’s wife Ivanka Trump paid tribute to him on Instagram on Thursday morning in honor of their 10-year wedding anniversary
Looking back: The first daughter shared three portraits from their wedding, which took place at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on October 25, 2009
When she saw the photographers outside, she couldn’t resist asking them to take her pet’s picture, resulting in a series of portraits of the dog, which fans have speculated is a cross between a Siberian Husky and a Pomeranian.
Ivanka was presumably still inside after spending the day before in Wichita, Kansas, with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Senator Jerry Moran.
The group toured WSU-Tech’s National Center for Aviation Training, where they spoke with students and teachers about the school’s workforce development program.
Ivanka donned an eye-catching tan blazer with black polka dots, which she wore over a classic black turtleneck and wide-leg dress pants.
The jacket appeared to be a custom design from Oscar de la Renta, as the luxury label previously sold a twill dress in the same color and pattern.
Look of love: In one portrait, they are touching noses and smiling from ear to ear
Gushing tribute: In the caption, Ivanka wrote about how Jared is an inspiring public servant and amazing father while noting that he loves her for exactly who she is
A similar Oscar de la Renta blazer retails for $2,700, though a bespoke design would likely cost a great deal more.
The White House senior adviser appeared to be in great spirits during Thursday’s tour, and she even got some hands-on experience.
She happily drilled a rivet into sheet metal while visiting one of the technical college’s classrooms.
Ivanka and Pompeo later took part in a roundtable discussion with Dr. Sheree Utash, the president of WSU Tech and vice president of workforce development at Wichita State University.
During the conversation, students at WSU Tech spoke about their experiences and how they’ve found success without going to a four-year school.

Ten years: On her Instagram Story, she posted an image of herself posing in her bridal gown
‘It is all incredibly inspiring because you all are the faces of the work that we are all trying to do and of the future of this country,’ Ivanka said, according to local news station KSN.
Following the roundtable, a group of Wichita-based aviation companies signed the Pledge to America’s Workers, the Trump administration’s initiative designed to get private companies to expand job training.
While in Wichita on Thursday, Ivanka took to Instagram to preemptively celebrate her 10-year wedding anniversary with Jared by sharing throwback photos of herself on their big day.
‘Looking forward to celebrating 10 amazing years of marriage to my love tomorrow!’ she captioned a stunning black and white portrait of herself with her bridal veil pulled over her head.
On her Instagram Story, she posted an image of herself posing in her wedding dress as she stands in a doorway at the golf club.

Ivanka announced her arrival in Wichita on her Instagram Story on Wednesday evening by sharing a photo of herself posing on the airport tarmac with Pompeo and Moran.
In the snapshot, she is smiling from ear to ear while donning a preppy black and gray argyle sweater, black cropped pants, and black ankle-strap heels.
The first daughter also tweeted the image, writing: ‘Landed in Wichita w/ @SecPompeo and @JerryMoran! Brilliant innovators such as Walter Beech & Clyde Cessna established this city as the hub for aircraft making during the early half of the 20th Century. 100 yrs later, Wichita remains a leader worldwide in aviation manufacturing!’
Ivanka stayed home on Monday and Tuesday while celebrating the Jewish holiday Shemini Atzeret with her family.
Shemini Atzeret immediately follows the seventh day of the Jewish festival of Sukkot. It is a separate, yet connected, holy day devoted to the spiritual aspects of Sukkot.
Ivanka converted to Judaism in 2009 to marry Jared, an Orthodox Jew, and they are raising their three children Orthodox as well.
