Either way, I feel truly blessed to be married to an amazing man that has always loved me for who I am, and never goes a day without telling me so. We officially started dating our senior year of high school, and I am still in denial that we graduated high school almost 7 years ago, where does the time go? We had known each other long before we started dating though. We both went to the same middle school, in fact he only lived about a mile down the road from me, and I still remember how goofy I thought he was at the time. Even then he always knew how to make me laugh. If I would have told my 17 year old self that the boy I just started dating would end up being the love of my life, I would have never believed it. Luckily fate didn't make me wait too long to find him, and I am thankful for everyday that I spend with him. Would you like to see an embarassing picture of us on our first official date? Okay well just this once...
