Looking at our story, you’d think that Josh and I met and made a mistake by jumping into marriage and children right away. Sure, it’s not for everyone but it seems to be working for us. Hell, we’ve lasted 100 times longer than Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries did. Hmph.
Can you believe it’s been two years since we sat down at that table at Liberty? I remember seeing you ahead of our date and thinking hmmm this guy isn’t bad and maybe I will see what he’s all about.
(Sidebar: Josh and I met online, yep. So, technically our first date was a blind date. We had spoken for quite a few weeks beforehand and I just didn’t know if I was ready to date someone so much younger than me. I’m 34 and he’s 28. Seriously, in dog years that’s like 10 lifetimes. I actually blew him off a few times because I just wasn’t sure if I wanted to go down this road again and take the chance of liking him only to have him treat me like crap. I’m glad everyone convinced me to give him a chance!!).
From the moment we left the restaurant I hoped you’d text me or call me and you delivered less than an hour later. To say our story is a whirlwind is putting it mildly. I never in a billion years thought I’d meet you officially two years ago today, get engaged on February 12, 2011, find out we were pregnant on April 15, 2011, and get married on May 9, 2011. But, I really am so thankful and blessed to have you as my partner and parent to Oliver and Dos.
I love you honey beat. Thanks for putting up with my crazy. I have no idea what in the hell you saw in me but thank goodness you didn’t run away! Here’s to so many more years to come.
