9 years today

Wednesday, December 2, 2009 12 Post-It Notes

9 years ago today I was rushing around my small town trying to get my hair fixed and find my shoes while trying to squeeze in a lunch of mozzarella cheese sticks and a cookie shake. I was less than 2 months pregnant and quite a bit scared. As I sat in the beauty chair while all the women were flitting around me I began to think about my life I was leaving behind. Anyone who knows me knows that I wasn't your average girl next door. I was loud, proud, and obnoxious as hell. Yet, here I was at 18 sitting in a beauty chair pregnant and getting ready to get married. A serene calm came over me. THIS was not only what I was supposed to do, but it was RIGHT. How many times can an 18 year old know deep in their heart that this choice was the most important one they would make in their lives. Because of that choice 9 years later I sit here in front of a computer with a serene calm around me knowing that the choice I made 9 years ago was the right one. I have a wonderful husband who loves me, is understanding, very supportive, and also forgiving. That man has given me 2 precious children that are my world. While we have had our ups and downs like any marriage does. Even some knock down screaming matches or our 2 month separation at the end of the night we still wanted to call each other and tell the other about our day. Brian-YOU are the person I want to go to sleep with, share my secrets with, and laugh with for the rest of my life. Happy Anniversary!
