11 years and counting....

May 15, 1999

" wanna make this official?"  That is the question that changed my life.  11 years ago today, an adorably blond boy asked me to be his girlfriend.  Without hesitating I said yes and then received a sweet peck on the first kiss.  It is hard to believe how that one moment changed my whole life, but then at the ripe old age of 15 I knew I was going to marry him.  From that moment on, it wasn't a matter of "if" I was going to marry him, it was a matter of "when".  Over the next several years he taught me how to drive (mom and dad, you know why), we went to prom, I went to hundreds of soccer games, we purchased promise rings, he taught my baby sister (she was 7 when we started dating) how to play soccer in our backyard, and we made many more precious memories.  While cleaning out a closet in preparation for turning our guest room into Harrison's room, I found a box of letters that we had written each other in high school.  I sat on the floor (with my big prego belly) and cried as I read some of those letters.  I realized that everything I wished for as a 16 year old girl had come true.   

Thank you, Matt, for making all my dreams come true!
