11 years ago today...

I married my best friend.

When I think about it now (at the age of 30) I find it incredibly hard to believe that anyone let us actually get married at the young age of 19. The older I get, the younger 19 seems. Regardless, I am so glad that God allowed me to meet my soul mate so early in life.

There were so many people who questioned our motives in the beginning. People whispered , "is she pregnant?" Very few people actually believed what we knew to be true; We were meant to be married. Many people numbered our days together. They told us marriage was too hard for a couple of college kids to get through. I am so proud to have proved them all wrong.

I will admit, the road of marriage has not always been easy. Anyone that says it is easy is most likely lying to themselves and/or to others. I know for a fact that there were times throughout our married lives where the thought crossed our minds that it would be easier to walk away than to put forth the effort and make it work. I can also say that because of those tough times, we are a stronger couple. I am thankful for those challenges because that is when we have grown the most.

Thank you, Designer, for loving me. Thank you for being my best friend. Thank you for supporting my dreams and goals. Thank you for the fun times. Thank you for the not so fun times. Thank you for the gift of our beautiful daughter. Thank you for being a great daddy. Thank you for walking this road, we call life, together hand-in-hand with me! There is no one in this world I would rather be with than you each and every day. I love you!!!
