Happy 3rd Anniversary!
I met my husband 15 years (and 40 pounds) ago when I was in 9th grade and he was in 11th. It was 1993. Gas was only 99 cent a gallon. You know you're old when you start equating years of your life with how much stuff used to cost. Of course at that time we had no idea that one day we'd be MARRIED with a FAMILY! Young love is innocent and uncomplicated...back then the biggest decision we had to make was which movie to see on Friday night. As the years have passed, things have gotten a bit more complex, with a house and a baby and bills sometimes we look at each other and wonder, "How did we get here? Seems like just yesterday we were going on the prom!" (I'll spare you all and NOT post the prom pictures...I was in my blond phase). But, at the end of the day I wouldn't trade our family or the last 15 years for anything in the world, we got each other AND Amina out the deal. Happy Anniversary!
As an aside, it was 2 years ago on our anniversary that I found out I was pregnant with Amina!
