13 Years Ago

I married the love of my life!


16 years ago, I fell in love.

We were just kids.  We grew up together.

2011August 015

We got engaged.

2011August 011

We got married.

Our relationship survived our 20’s!

We watched as one another slowly dipped our toes into adulthood.

We hit rough patches that left us clinging to each other and closer than ever. Even more in love than we thought possible.

There comes a time when you enter a relationship at a young age, that you have to look at your partner through adult eyes.

We met and fell in love as kids, when the main reason we had jobs was to support our partying.

2011August 019

We had grown into adults, struggling to pay bills and make a house payment.

A marriage takes work. So, we rolled up our sleeves.


Before we knew it, we were in the Bahamas celebrating our 10 year anniversary!


Justin makes me want to be a better person.  We begin and end every single day with a hug and a kiss.

We have learned to not take each other for granted.  We appreciate each other and treat one another with respect.  We still say “please” and “thank you”!  He still opens my car door.  He makes me laugh every single day.
