Twelve Years And Still Going Strong

IMAG0066-1

Twelve years ago today Jarred and I had our first date.  We were in high school, Jarred a senior, me a junior.  I remember it like it was yesterday, we went to a friend’s house after the Erwin vs. Pinson basketball game.

We have had our ups, downs and bumps in the road along the way but who hasn’t.  We were just a couple of kids that fell in love and nothing would stop us from making it work.  We had a LOT of growing up to do over the years but we knew we could make it last.

Jarred, you are my heart and soul.  I am so glad that all those years ago you took a chance and asked me out.  Even though I had known you since 1st grade and you were “just” Kayla’s big brother, you stole my heart that January night in my grandmother’s driveway.  I remember talking to you on the phone all night long, even though I knew I had to get up and go to school the next morning.

Who would have thought  that all this time later we would be married and have two precious boys.

Through thick and thin we have made it work.  I wouldn’t have it any other way!

These pictures are cracking me up!  Sorry for the poor quality, but you know these were before digital pictures.
