14 Years Ago

14 years ago today a great guy asked if he could come over to my house and bring me lunch for my birthday. Little did we know where we could be 14 years later!

December 20, 1995 was our very first date. Matt was 16 years old and I was 14 (hence why he had to come to my house and we didn't go out). He brought over Chick-fil-A and we watched a movie. Good times. He also gave me the world's worst birthday present - a book of 100 ways to torture your cat. It is surprising I let him stay around! I often think about how it wasn't my plan to meet the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with at 14 but hey it happened and truth be told it worked out pretty well! Just a couple of more years and we have been married for as long as we dated. It is pretty amazing to me that I have now been with Matt for 1/2 my life!! And it has been wonderful! He is an amazing husband and now an amazing father! Love you Matt! Happy Dating Anniversary!

I didn't have any pictures on my computer of when we first started dating but here we are looking really young (and skinny!)
