Then....August 21st, 1993
Who knew on a fateful day 19 years ago while driving up the 805 freeway in San Diego, my life would change forever?! http://themanyshadesoflove.blogspot.com/2010/05/how-heck-did-you-two-meet-i-mean-she.html That was the day I "met" my hubby, and our future was set in motion. The story still blows my mind!
Now, flash forward to today...August 21st, 2011...our 18th wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe that so much time has gone by since that first day we saw each other on the freeway. We have been through so much together and have come so far, and neither one of us would have ever imagined that we would be where we are today. We are best friends, shoulders for each other, lovers, parents, partners, soulmates, and so much more. There are days when we laugh, there are days when we cry, and there are days when we want to "strangle" each other, but there is never, ever a day that goes by that we don't love each other completely. We don't take each other for granted and we realize how lucky and blessed we are to have each other.
Time has changed circumstances, but time has not changed us. We are more in love today than the day we got married. There is a deepness to that love that only time, heartache, life, happiness, and challenges can bring. It's the "getting through" and the "making it out" of the dark times that has truly allowed us to embrace the "bright times" with joy.
I love my husband not just with all my heart, but deep down to my soul. We just fit so very perfectly, while also being so very different. It's hard to even explain.
So today, on our 18th anniversary, I want to say thank you, for the most amazing, life altering, wonderful, 18 years! I love you Jamie J....happy, happy anniversary! Here's to many, many more! We rock!
