Nine Years....

Today is a special day for us...nine years ago today, we became "official." I'm not sure what that exactly means, I guess that was the day we officially became boyfriend and girlfriend. I honestly don't remember what happened that day for us to decide we were official, I just know that it's the day we've always celebrated as our anniversary.


Wow, nine years. It's crazy to think he has been in my life for over a decade. We met twelve years ago in ninth grade homeroom. Every year, we had at least one if not two classes together, not counting homeroom, so we were pretty good friends before we started dating. The funny thing was that the three months of school, before we started dating, I tried endlessly to get him and my best friend at the time to go out on a date. Luck for me, it never worked out.
When most people ask me how long we've been married, I always say "we've been together for nine years." I always say that because to us, that is much more of an accomplishment. We were married long before we were given that piece of paper. Plus, we are very proud of the fact that in nine years, we have never broken up or given up. Yes, it was contemplated a time or two, but somehow we always knew we were better off together.


I love the fact that I have watched this boy grow into a man that I am extremely proud of. Through nine years, he has seen me at my best and my absolute worst and of course the same goes for him. I can truly say that he is my best friend. I love him because he is my biggest cheerleader and my biggest critic. He always puts my well being in front of his. Though I may get pushed aside on a day to day basis, he always does have me first. I complain about his job and how he is not always home, but deep down I know he is doing it all for me. He does it so I can stay home and go to school. He does it so I can pursue my dreams.


No offense to anyone, but you think you love someone after a year or two, I thought the same thing...wait until after nine years...when I think about how much I love him, it brings me to tears. And unless, you've been together for years, then I'm sorry, you don't understand it only comes with time. I don't say this to offend anyone, I say this for you to have something to look forward to in your own lives...nine years from now, you will completely agree with me. I honestly love this man more and more everyday. Some days, it feels as though my heart is going to burst that I love him so much and I know the only other people I will ever feel this way about is our children.

So, here's to nine years... I know you'll read this and I just want to say thank you. Thank you for all the love you have given me. Thank you for all you do for me and our little family. Thank you for always supporting me in whatever adventure I am scheming. Thank you for always being honest with me, whether I want to hear it or not. Thank you for always holding my hand when we fight and refusing to never let go. Thank you for always being you and loving me for me. Thank you for refusing to go out with Rachel our senior year, who knows where we would be now. Thank you for growing up with me these past nine years. They haven't always been fun, but somehow we've always come out laughing. I know that God made you for me. I love you with ALL my heart and soul. No one will ever understand how I feel for you and what you mean to me. I can't wait to spend forever with you.











I love you forever Vidda!

When God Made You
Its always been a mystery to me
How two hearts can come together
And love can last for ever
But now that I have found you I believe
That A miracle has come
When god sends the perfect one...
Now gone are all my questions about why
And Ive never been so sure of anything
In my life...
Oh I wonder what God
Was thinking
When he created you
I wonder if he
Knew everything I would need
Because he made all my dreams come true
When God made You
He must have been thinking about me
I promise that wherever you may go
Where ever life may lead you
With all my heart Ill be their too
And from this moment on
I want you to know
Ill let nothing come between us
And I will even love you more...
Now gone are all my questions about why
And Ive never been so sure of anything
In my life
Oh I wonder what God was thinking
When he created you
I wounder if he
Knew everything I would need
Because he made all my dreams come true
When God made You
He must have been thinking about me
He made the sun
he made the moon
To harmonize a perfect tune
One cant move without the other
They just have to be together
And that is why i know its true
Your for me
And im for you
Because my world just cant be right
With out you in my life
Oh I wonder what God was thinking
When he created you
I wonder if he knew everything i would need
Because he made all my dreams come true
When God made you
He must have been thinking about me...

I love this. Everytime I have seen you and David, it has always been so obvious the love you have for each other. And seeing how a marriage can be like this, only gives me that much more to look forward to. :)
