December 27, 2005

8 years ago today, I married my best friend. Before I ever THOUGHT about him in any other way he was my very very good friend. We spent hours on the phone and were wonderful friends.

When I was 16 (almost 17) and he was 16..I saw the "light" and we began dating. We held hands in the car on the way home from a church conference in Indiana..and it all began. This picture is taken 1 month later at my 17th b-day party.

A few months later, he broke my heart and we didn't speak for about a year!! Time heals all...and the year we graduated...we became friends again. Shortly after graduation we began dating again..on again and off again until 1995...when we stayed "on". this picture is the summer of 95 in TN.

In February of 1997 (after a 2 week break up and me cutting off my long hair to spite him ) we became engaged and moved in together. In November we traveled to Gatlinburg to get our marriage license so we could be married the next month. this picture is us at the marriage license place.

On December 27, 1997 at 2:30 pm we were married. It was a beautiful ceremony and the BEST decision I ever made...I would do it again and again.

Our first year of marriage was tough...Kyle had an accident and broke his collar bone which required surgery and months off work. We were BROKE, but in love. This picture is us at my moms wedding in August of that year...even though we were POOR we were happy. Whether "feast or famine" our love stays strong and we stay happy. I am so thankful for that!
