It began when we were sixteen & seventeen years old.
Two high schoolers with the world at our fingertips.
I knew, within a month of meeting him, that I would marry him.
He was my other half.
So August 8, 2002, when he proposed after two years of dating, I said "Yes."
And one year after that, August 8, 2003, I said "I do."
We have made it through some rough patches.
Relocating to rural Alaska.
...things like that.
Yet here we are, ten years, four degrees and three babies later, better than ever.
We live a charmed life.
Our secret? Laughter.
Just when it's getting crazy with work, the house, the kids... we laugh.
I have Josh to thank for that.
He is my laughter.
"In the sweetness of friendship,
let there be laughter,
and sharing of pleasures.
For in the dew of little things
the heart finds its morning,
and is refreshed."
