10 Years

Today I celebrate 10 years of marriage to this guy.
(I like him.   a lot.)
10 years ago I married my best friend….lol…. sooo cheesy but so true.  😉
Our wedding was back in the film days!


We met downstate at my brothers house.  Our connection was instant.  I lived downstate and Matt lived up here so we got to know each other over e-mail for the next several months.  I still have every single e-mail we ever traded with each other back then.  I can go back and read our love story unfold 😉  (That would make for some interesting and funny blog posts…. 😉


We knew fairly quickly that we would be together for the long haul.   I still remember tentatively asking Matt if he thought we might get married.   This was only a couple of months in.   His answer was “of course”.   Phew!


Whenever I read about how marriage is so hard and it’s such a compromise and you really need to work at it, I don’t quite understand that.   I’ve never felt that marriage was work.   I thank God often for giving me someone who is so compatible with me.   So patient, so loving, such a gentleman and fun!!


He still makes me laugh every day.   Maybe even more so now than when we were first married.  We probably flirt more now too. 😉   Our kids can definitely see that we don’t just love each other, we actually really like each other too.  🙂


These 10 years have flown by!   And they have been amazing!


Our little 8 year old photographer took these photos of us so they are a bit blurry and all but these pretty much sum us up 🙂
