I'm an old married lady....

Eight years ago today, at the ripe old age of 19!, I became a married woman. I married a man, that technically my mom had chosen for me (funny how moms always know best huh?), but more importantly, HE chose me. He wasn't someone that I had to chase, or win over, or beg for attention. He chased me! He won ME over! It felt really good :) He likes to remind me just how close I came to him giving up. I'm SO glad he didn't. We have certainly had our ups and downs over the past few years but we have always come out of it all more united than when we started. I am so blessed to have a true partner to share my life with, to "grow up" with, to raise children with, and to just BE with. I love you baby!
