a DiMe In TiMe...

10 years ago this week, I was 14 years old getting ready for my first high school dance. Of course I was full of nerves because I didn't want to get pegged as a nerd and I wanted to be one of the cool kids. Little did I know that this was going to be the night that would change my life forever. This was the night that I met Ben for the first time. The entire night was kind of a blur of meeting up with friends I hadn't seen all summer, but I remembered meeting him. I was so nervous about talking to him that when Josh Curtis introduced us, I said the dumbest thing, "I like your shoes!" I know I am a huge dork. Well even with my dorky line I must have made a good impression because 4 1/2 years later we were married on January 8, 2005.Ben was my first REAL boyfriend. He was my first kiss. My first love. My best friend. Knowing each other for so long has been such a blessing in our lives. We have a ton of fun memories of basically us growing up together.
Now after beautiful little boys have joined our family and we have been married for 5 1/2 years I feel like we are stronger than ever and I still fall in love with him more every day! Thank you for 10 amazing (and sometimes crazy) years honey. We truly are meant for each other!
