10 Years Ago...


I met my wonderful husband on a blind date. Yes a blind date he was 30 years old & I was 23 years old. We had mutual friends who set us up at a cookout. I was immediately attracted to Scott. I think what really did it was when they put me on the back of a 4 wheeler with this guy and I had to wrap my arms around him. He looked at me and said "hold on tight, if you come off of this thing you have to bring me with you." I went home my heart all in a flutter and bouncing off the walls I was in love. We had our 1st official date the next night on July 5th. He took me to see the X-files movie (which by the way he told me last night a new one is coming out this month...looks like we will be needing a babysitter) and then to Tumbleweed to eat.

Who knew that 10 years later we would be married for almost 6 years and have a beautiful baby girl who is 11 months old. We have been through a lot but we have done it all together. I love Scott with all my heart and I am so blessed to have him as my husband. I thank God everyday for putting him in my life. He is my soul mate and I look forward to many many many more years together! I love you very much Scott and I am so blessed to be your wife. Thanks for taking me on that ride 10 years ago...guess what I am still holding on tight!

*Look at that pic of us yes I was blonde (obviously not natural) This pic was taken in Oct. or Nov. of 1998.
