9 Years ago today...

We were just two 16 year old kids sitting on my parent's couch nervous about what was to come. You finally got up the nerve to ask me to be your girlfriend and I, like a giddy little girl, said yes!! That day has forever changed my life. I still get the same butterflies in my stomach when I hear the door unlock each night when you are getting home from work, and I love that we still make each other feel like we are 16 again. I love the journey that we have taken these past 9 years together and I look forward to what has yet to come in this journey!

During the past 9 years we have gone through a lot together: first kisses, graduating high school, moving to college, fraternities/sororities, losing loved ones, internships that kept us apart for 6 months, graduating college, getting our first big-kid jobs, an engagement, a wedding, a honeymoon, moving in together in Baton Rouge, moving to Austin, an unexpected pregnancy, a horrible miscarriage, moving across the country to New York, unemployment, long hours at work, and thoughts about what is to come. Whether it was good or bad, we have been by each other's side the whole time. I would not change one thing about our life together, even though I complain on a daily basis about being so far from our families. You are my rock and my best friend, and I look forward to many, many, many more years together. Happy 9th {dating} anniversary!

Here is a look back at the past 9 years {wow, I went through a lot of hairstyles}....

Have a Great Weekend!
