Happy Anniversary Part II

On Friday I wrote about mine and Jason's 15 year anniversary (missed it? Here ya go). Well, today is our other anniversary.

Friday was the anniversary of our relationship as a couple. But eleven wonderful years ago today, Jason and I took our relationship to the ultimate level. On December 16, 2001, Jason made me the happiest woman on earth by becoming my husband.

These past eleven years have truly been beyond amazing. I can honestly say that I married my best friend. When I have good news, he's the first person I want to tell. When I need comfort, he's the one I turn to. He makes me laugh, he wipes away my tears, he doesn't mind going shopping with me (and he'll even hold my purse while I'm trying on clothes!). What can I say? I caught a good one.... and I'm not letting go.

So, happy 11th (wedding) anniversary to my best friend, my soul mate, the man I'm honored to call my husband.

Happy Anniversary Part I

In August of 1997, I started my Freshman year at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. I was about 3 hours away from home - the first time I'd really been away from home on my own - and was loving the freedom and excitement of college. Being on my own for the first time, I decided I didn't want a boyfriend. I wanted to be single and concentrate on finding me. 

But, in November of that year I met a guy named Jason.... this guy irrevocably changed my life for the better. We quickly became friends. Our favorite thing to do was just hang out until sometime in the early morning (sometimes until 3:00 or 4:00), just watching Cartoon Network. 

Fifteen years ago today, our relationship changed from "just friends" to  "it's official, we're a couple." 

I can't believe so many years have gone by. Our relationship has been nowhere near perfect. But, anytime we've hit a snag, we've always come through stronger than before. 

Happy 15 year (overall) anniversary, baby! I love you so much more than you can ever know. Bring on the next 15 years. I know they're gonna be epic.
