Scott and I had our first date.
Eight years ago today:
Scott had much MUCH more hair!
Eight years ago, Scott and I went on our first date. It went a little something like this.....
He drove 2.5 hours up north from Midland, we hopped in the car and drove 2 more hours west to Mackinaw City. We spent the day walking, shopping, eating pizza at Mama Mia’s, and enjoyed the laser light show on a blanket that evening.
It was the most perfect day and I fell, I mean I fell hard. Scott is my everything.
Tonight as I write, I am reflecting on all that we have accomplished in our eight years with our health, our jobs, our schooling, our home, etc... We are the best we can be because of the support and unselfishness ways of each other. I am proud to say that there was never a single moment during this time that we questioned our desire to grow old together.
I am thinking about who we were when we first met to who we have become. Our love has transformed from the simpleness of infatuation into an inseparable bond.
The first seven years were incredibly fun. We traveled together, tried new things, taught each other new sports, and was even spontaneous! This year, we had to endure the deepest of all pain together, something that was destined make or break us. We have chosen this path, the right path, this life as a couple, and yes we will conquer. Throw us your fastball and your curveball, we are ready, when we play together, our batting average is a thousand.
When you hit rock bottom, the only way out is up. Step by step we help each other make the climb and someday, when our family is complete, we will see the light again.
There is unspoken anxiety about building a family but comfort knowing that we can, and we will be built. Once complete, I am confident we will be able to step back and look at how lucky we really are.
So, for the record. I do have the greatest husband.......EVER!
It has been an amazing eight years.
With that, here is a little humor for today since it is opening day of the football season (which by the way, if you are looking for my husband, he has the remote in his hand and is switching from ESPN 1 to ESPN 2 to ESPN 3. Sometimes he gets really sneaky and when one game ends, he flips to another game that has the same jersey colors so I think the game he ‘wants to watch’ just seems to last forever).
The first photo is Maddox dressed by Jamie the day before football season and the second photo is Maddox dressed by Scott the day of football season.
Will Maddox will be mama’s girlie girl or daddy’s assistant coach?
Here's to 88 more years of love, laughter, and happiness! I remember this day oh so long ago. I'm so glad you found your soul mate!
