I don't when I grew up, but it feels like just yesterday that me and my husband had just started dating. We would go to the beach a lot, and I remember sitting there in our sweat shirts and jeans watching the sun set, and he told me that he was falling in love with me. That was probably date 4 or 5. We knew that we were going to get married right away. I remember feeling like we were the luckiest people in the world because we found each other.
He proposed on our one year anniversary... in the rain... with his knee in a puddle... and I was completely surprised! And then we whirl-winded through until now. We started dating in '06, got engaged in '07, married in '08, bought a house in '09 (and got pregnant but didn't know until '10), Adelaide was born in '10, got pregnant again in '11, and Jackson was born in '12.
We still sit down after the babies are in bed and look at each other and say "I can't believe that we have kids and we are married!!" It all goes by so fast! I wish that I could just go back in time and savor every little moment even more.
I can still remember every feeling I had the first time I met my husband. Thinking to myself "God, why didn't you put me with someone like him?" I had never felt that way about anyone! I remember our one bedroom apartment in Riverside CA. It was my favorite place in the world! I still miss it to this day and I'm not sure why; maybe because it was our first home.
I was thinking about all of this because I was listening to our song. The song we danced to at our wedding. What an amazing thing that just from listening to it I am taken back to our wedding day. I heard one of my best friend's wedding song yesterday and she was the first one of our friends to get married and remember watching them dance and thinking how lucky they were that they found each other and get to spend their lives together.
I know that marriage isn't always a cake walk, and for some it is even more difficult than we can imagine. But remembering how it all got started, and knowing that God has a plan for you to love each other even more than the day you were married, makes me so excited for what is to come.
