10 years

On December 12, 2000, my DH and I started dating; we were both in high school. Three years later, we were engaged, we were married a year and a half after that, another year passed and we were blessed with our first child, and another five years and we had our second. We've dealt with a long-distance relationship during the first semester of college and long hours apart when he was working OTR. We also managed an entire year staying home together after his wreck. Through it all, we have only grown stronger. I wouldn't have gone through all that with anyone else; I love you, babe!
