Nine years ago on this very day, Chris asked me, "uhhh so you want to uhhh like go out??"  
And the rest is history....

How romantic that man of mine is.  During our high school years this day was a BIG deal, a big deal indeed; each year when it rolled around we{well really just me} would say, " I can't believe we have been together for 2!"  And then my hunny would say something like, " I know sweetheart, and I love you more each day."  Oh yes, ladies, he is that good.  But yesterday, when I realized what today's date was I simply said the same thing I always did, "I can't believe we have been together for 9!"  And then we both looked at each other and simultaneously said, "WOW, 9 years!"  Pretty crazy, right?  Right.

Nine years of laughs, phone calls, love notes, flowers, sweet kisses, fights, {yes, we all have them} and photos.  Here are just a few....
{I know....Photo overload}

What an indescribable nine years it has been.....

I love you more each and every day; I am so incredibly blessed to have met a man like you.  
Thank you so much for some amazing memories.  
I look forward to making many more.....cause its me & you babe, forever.
I love you.

Have a great Wednesday!
