A decade!

Ten years ago today on July 24, 1999 at 6:00 in the evening, I married my best friend. What I couldn't have known then was how much more in love I would be with him now. Even though life has been rough at times, we are happy, very happy, and that feels so good.

Dating: September 1998, I was 20 and Jeremy was 23

A year later... leaving our wedding reception

And now, 10 years later. A little wiser, definitely some grey hairs and more laugh lines than I'd like to admit but I'm looking forward to what another 10 years will bring.

We are leaving in a little more than an hour to drop the boys off with my sister and then spend our first night away since Sawyer's birth! We are really excited to sit down at a nice restaurant, talk uninterrupted, and go back to a nice quiet hotel where we don't have to worry about who's jumping on the beds or running too loudly. Time away, just the two of us. It's very much deserved and we plan to enjoy each moment together until tomorrow afternoon when we pick up our boys and bring them back home to our normal life again.

Yay! Congratulations, friends! Look how you HAVEN'T even aged that much...go genes and vitamins! Have SUCH a good time this weekend--you deserve it.

Happy anniversary you two! You know, you really do look like you haven't aged. Are you vampires? :-)

Congratulations! It's true, you guys haven't changed a bit. Enjoy your night away. We did a brave thing and went to Guam for three days by ourselves for our 10th anniversary and it was heaven! The girls had never slept apart from us so I was nervous but they did great.
