Nine years ago today . . .


Sterling and I celebrated our 9th anniversary today! It seems like we have known each other for much longer then 9 years! Well, we actually met 11 years ago when I moved into a house with a bunch of my college friends. Sterling and his guy buddies lived in the house before us. Once we moved in, Sterling and another guy didn't seem to get the picture that we lived there now! LOL! They were always hanging out there . . . go figure, a bunch of hot girls!! (LOL! yeah.)

Sterling actually asked 2 of my roommates out before me! What a dork, huh?! :) It was nice though because we were friends for about 7 months before we realized that we both had feelings that were deeper. Two years or so later - we were married!

I love Sterling so much and I wouldn't trade where we are at this point in our marriage/life for anything. Tonight, we went out with our children. We have been so busy that we decided to keep the celebration low key.

The evening could not have been any nicer! Believe it or not, our boys were on their best behaviour! Sterling and I kept giving each other smiles like we couldn't believe that they were being sooo good! Then, and this is truly amazing, Myles actually ate red meat!!! I know that that doesn't seem like much of a feat but trust me, this little boy was following in Asher's footsteps with his eating habits. He has never eaten any meat other then bologna.

This truly was the best gift that our children could have given us! It is the little things that make our lives special. I am so happy to be sharing my life with Sterling. I love you babe!
