9 Years... and counting!
Today, Jake and I have been married for 9 years. It is amazing how much people change as they get older. I met Jake when I was 19. At the time, I wanted to graduate college and become an CPA. I wasn't sold on marriage or children, but I didn't think either one would be a bad idea... if the right guy came along. I'm not sure if I believe in "love at first sight". But I do know that the more time I spent with Jake, the more optimistic of my future I became. He made me see myself through his eyes and all I wanted to do was become the best me for him. 15 years later, I love him more each day. Whether it is him offering to bath the children or surprising me with a trip to the spa (at 12:45 today!), he makes me thankful for the life I have been given. I don't know what my future holds, but I do know that if I am holding his hand anything is possible. I love you, Jake! And I can't wait for the next 59 years.
