this is us, about 11 years ago. ((and i know i've shared this picture a thousand and three times, but i didn't feel like finding another one to scan in, when i already had this one!))
today marks 11 years together. crazy.
11 years ago i would've never imagined how a simple 'yes' would've turned into this.
even though we still 'argue' about where you asked me. was it by the library or the house on the corner? it doesn't matter. because you asked me.
you said, so do you want to go out with me?
me being told earlier in the day if we did something you were going to ask me out, had been thinking all night...WHEN?! is he going to do it? and what will i say. yes. sure. yeah. of course.
i had been preparing the answer all night.
it took you til 1:00 AM may 22nd to ask. ((by the house on the corner))
and i said yes.
i smiled and said yes.
then we were at my house. and i don't think my feet hit the ground on the way to the door. or to my bed.
i fell asleep with a smile on my face.
and 11 years since becoming your girlfriend.
(and 6 1/2 sicne becoming your wife)
i still fall asleep with a smile on my face.
you've made me the happiest girl in the world.
you're the first boy i ever truly placed 100% of my trust in.
you're the first boy who told me, you loved me. and i believed it.
you're the first boy who showed me how much you cared about me, and meant it.
you're the first boy i let see my 'other side'. and you stayed.
you're the first boy who left me silly notes on my car and roses on my bed.
you're the first boy that stole my heart, and kept it.
i love you shaun.
today. tomorrow. and always.
