Five years ago today, Josh and I were married for time and all eternity! When I made that decision, to say "I do" at the young age of 21, I don't think I realized just what those two short words entailed. Now, after 1,825 days, I think I have a little better understanding of what a huge decision that really was...and boy am I glad I made the right choice.
We met almost nine years ago, when we were Seniors in high school, at my older sisters wedding in fact! (i like to say love was in the air *wink) We attended BYU together (we bleed blue! ha), he went on a two year mission to Rome, we wrote eachother, I dated other people but in my mind nobody compared to Josh. And when he got back in 2006 we sealed the deal.
I am grateful for this man of mine, he really is my better half. He puts up with me and my crazy ideas and crazy self so perfectly. Not that our marriage is perfect by any means, but he is perfect for me. That I can most definitely say with 100% surety.
Happy five years Joshie, here's to many more years of growing old together.
