9 years

“the very first moment i beheld him,
my heart was irrevocably gone.”

– jane austen

9 years ago this day, i married the man i knew i would marry within months of meeting him. i remember so clearly walking down the aisle on the arm of my dad, looking into this handsome face that was so confident in his choosing of me! i look back at our years of dating and think how we were just kids (18 and 21). we have grown up together in so many ways. i sit at the dinner table now and look into 3 little faces and am still in shock that they are ours, that we are here in life. i so often think that we’re still in the young love stage, but when i see them, reality sets in. we’re far from there and in such a better place. we’re home. we are where we are meant to be. we have become a family. thank you babe, for your commitment to me, to your kids, to us. your daily sacrifices do not go unnoticed. i love you now more than ever. to the moon and back!

    OH, Lindsey! How the memories come back for me—-CONGRATULATIONS! That Jane Austen quote says exactly what I was thinking (I said”I am going to marry that man!”)when Peter and I met 46 years ago! We will celebrate 41 in July and he still makes my heart zing!!

    michelle – hmm… details on the date night? well, when your daughter’s birthday lands on the same day, the anniversary kind of gets pushed to the back burner. we spent the evening together… working. so romantic, i know! but we’re going big for #10 next year!
