Our Love Story

With Valentine’s Day and our 5th {yes, 5th! where has the time gone??} anniversary right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to do a recap of the hubs’ and my love story. People sometimes look at me so funny when I say that I knew the person I would marry when I was nine years old. But I did. It really happens!

So much of our love story is my life story.  I hope you will enjoy reading!

Somehow, some way, we went from looking like this….

{honey, please don’t shoot me…ha!}

and this…

to being married on February 11, 2006…

Here’s our story…

I’m so blessed and so thankful to be married to my soul mate. He was worth waiting for.

If it was not for my sweet hubs, I would be the happiest single woman alive (now I’m just the happiest married woman alive!). My motto has always been that I’d rather be happy and single rather than miserable and married to the wrong person.

We don’t live in a fairy tale. Marriage is tough, hard work. We argue, disagree and sin. Yet grace continues to abound and our love continues to grow.

It’s a mysterious, amazing thing.
