Time Flies

On a much lighter and happier note... ELEVEN years ago today, on an unusually chilly and rainy Charleston, SC, afternoon (I called it our showers of blessings) I married my best friend. Three kids, a cat, a dog, and five moves later, I feel like the same girl, just a bit older and wiser. I know that it's cliche, but it seems like it was only yesterday that I opened the door for him at the Charleston Baptist Association building and introduced myself. After working together that summer I returned to college with a gut feeling that he was "the one" but not having a clue how it would work out since I was in Arkansas and he was in Virginia, starting his career in the Army. Sure enough, less than a year later we were married, and 10 days after the wedding we took off to start a new life in Germany. Our life together has been an adventure, and looking back on it all, I wouldn't change a thing. I love you babe!!

Congrats!!! We had our 11 in May. As much fun as those early years were... I wouldn't go back! It's true that marriage gets more fun and sweeter with time. = )

Congrats my dear friend! I will never forget seeing your ring for the first time, or when you tried your dress on for us Zen's at Shari's apartment on campus. I will also not ever stop feeling bad for missing that great day! Hugs!
