My Love

My wonderful husband and I got engaged 11 years ago today. We were in Key West, Florida on vacation and then headed to Michigan for snowmobiling at Mark's sister's house. Before we left my friend said, "I just know you are going to get engaged on Valentine's Day" and I replied that she was silly. We had only been dating for 8 months and how silly to think that Mark was going to ask me to marry him on Valentine's Day of all days. But ask me he did! And we were married 3 months later in May.

I know it sounds hokey but I love him more today than I did 11 years ago. We have weathered so many storms in our marriage and each one has brought us closer and to a more mature place in our marriage. I know without a shadow of doubt that there is no one I would rather spend the rest of my life with, no one I would rather walk with through this journey God has placed us on with and no one who can hold me up when I can't hold myself up like Mark. I am so blessed to be the wife of this amazing man!!
