Ten years later...

August 19, 2002.

Ten years ago I was just a small-town girl mending what I thought was a broken heart. 


You were the quarterback of the football team and the most handsome thing I'd ever seen.


You had been slowly working your way into my every thought, and, as crazy as it seemed, I had already started falling for your quiet kindness and gorgeous smile. 

So when you asked me to be your girlfriend that night as I sat beside you in your old white Chevy, I said yes without so much as a second thought.


I will forever think of that instant as the smartest decision I've ever made.

Since then, you've been by my side during every significant moment in my life.  My parents' divorce.  Three graduations.  A move to a scary, big city.  A walk down the aisle in a white dress.  My first big-girl job.

And I will never, ever stop being thankful for you.  You and this love that makes me the luckiest girl in the world.  My heart has been unmistakably yours for ten years, and I can only pray that you'll keep it for many more.

This makes my heart smile!!! It's such an incredible blessing when the right man comes along. I've seen such heartache for people who didn't cherish and work in their marriage and relationships. It's such a blessing when 2 people fall in love and continue daily to work on and improve their marriage, sometimes even in such a way that it's so fun, one would hardly call it work. ;)

I don't either... I teach high school and tell girls this all the time. I did meet my hubby in high school also, but we too, are part of the 1% of relationships that make it out of high school. It's a rarity, but I think true love in general is hard thing to find at any age. :)
