Four Years

A modern day mix tape for my husband on our anniversary:
(all the links in this post lead to cheesy love songs that I am dedicating to Luke today!)

Twelve years ago, I was just a nerdy sophomore from youth group, and you were the cool junior that all of my friends were dating.  Wouldn't it be funny if we knew then what we know now?

 Eight years ago I fell head over heels for you with just one look. We started dating, and I knew you would be the one I would marry.

At the beginning of our relationship, I didn't know it was possible to feel so in love.  I would wake up thinking about you every morning, and you would be on my mind every night when I fell asleep.  The first time you kissed me, I knew you'd be the last person I'd kiss, like that, for the rest of my life.

We continued to date and our puppy love grew into something more.  We had our first arguments, and some ups and downs, but ultimately we learned to love each other in spite of our imperfections.  And that is what real love is.  I knew you really loved me when you put up with my quirky, absent-minded ways! (Pretty sure that last song was written for me). 

Five-and-a-half years ago on December 23, you asked me to be your wife.  With one word, I sealed our future together forever.

And finally, on July 12, 2008, we tied the knot in front of all our friends and family.  It was the best day of my life!

I can't believe that day was four years ago already!  We have been through so much in four years -- difficult things, exciting things, and amazing things.  We have grown together, and we aren't even the same people we were eight years ago when we went on our first date.  I am so blessed to have you in my life, and I just love you more and more every day.
