Jade is my heart. He is my first and only love in life. I "met", this is a strange word to use when you go to a school of 400 students total, Jade on November 22, 1996. I knew my best friend, Melissa, was hooking me up with him, because she was interested in his best friend Dan.
Prom - May, 1997
I wanted no part of this plan, nor did Jade. The night I met him, Melissa & Dan planned a movie at Dan's house. I sat on a stationary exercise bike seat for half the movie, because I didn't want to sit by Jade on the loveseat. Isn't that hilarious! What an awkward girl am I that I literally sat on an exercise bike for over an hour to avoid him. It's hilarious!

He is my soul mate, my best friend, my partner in crime. He is my brutally honest teammate. Without him, I wouldn't have grown into the woman I am today - literally he shaped my life and who I am from 14 to my ripe age of 27. He makes me laugh until I cry, and comforts me when I need to cry. I'm truly blessed to have found a partner in life who is my everything. He - so Jerry McGuire of me - completes me.
Fall 2009. Here we are today. 13 years later and married for 6 years.
So today I wish my man a Happy Anniversary. It's been 6 glorious years of marriage. We only have 4 more & we're celebrating in a big way. Mark my words friends, ten years of marriage will finally equal an amazing vacation for Jade & I. To where I do not know, but we've made the promise - so Mom, Maggie, Abbie & Ruby - mark your calendars b/c my babies are coming to stay with you in 2014! We're going to celebrate without them!
P.S. I wish I could show you our scrapbook from 14 on. It's absolutely hilarious & Jade & I were cracking up over ourselves. Can you also tell that I like to change my hair a lot?
