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!
