Being Grateful

Yesterday was a pretty special day for Marco and I.  It was the 14th anniversary of the day we met.  I can now say I have officially been with him for half of my life-crazy and corny at the same time. 

When we met I was a young teenager on the verge of being out of control {my poor parents}.  It was the first weekend of summer vacation and we became completely inseparable.  I remember thinking this is too good to be true.  After a few months together I knew this was the man I was going to marry.  My friends couldn’t grasp the concept, they thought I was crazy.

The best thing for our relationship was when M decided to go off to school 5+ hours away in North Carolina.  At first I was devastated.  We had been inseparable for 6+ years.  The thought of not seeing him every weekend crushed me.  It took some time to adjust, but during this time apart I was given the opportunity to find and figure out the person I wanted to be.  This was the greatest gift I could ask for. 

Marco, we chose the unconventional route for sure.  Some days I love it and other days not so much.  We only get one life and I am so grateful we chose one another to share it with.  Our hopes and dreams are a little intense/out there/unrealistic but they are ours and have been the same since day one.  I love you and can’t wait to see what the next 14 years have in store for us. Movies? Travel? Babies? A house?
