9 Years Ago On This Day....

9 years ago......

Or you can say 108 months ...

Or even 3,285 days...

78,840 hours......

4,730,400 minutes...

And I like this number...283,824,000..........seconds.

I have known this man for 283,824,000 seconds and counting....

On this day and in this picture...this would be approximately second # 199,377,300

We have shared 9 years of our lives with one another...just a little over a third of my life!

Every second counts...

sure we've had our ups and downs...

Our Trials and tribulations...

But as I go backward in time with all these pictures, I only realize that I want to move forward...


Moving forward means more time with this man...more days, minutes, hours, seconds, years...
I look at this particular picture often, and I remember that this young man in the white shirt standing behind me, was a man in love with me, I didn't see it at first, but this night at my orchestra concert jump started a spark within me, he kissed my forehead and told me I played great and looked beautiful out there with my violin...now he was just my friend at that time, but do guy friends just kiss us? No. He wanted something more with me, I wanted something more with him, you never know who you will marry someday, he could be standing right behind you, like in this picture. 6 years and 6 weeks after this picture was taken, we became man and wife. Now being married to him for going on 3 years, I am more in love with him now more than ever. God gave me February 10th, 2002 and a young man stopping dead in his tracks when he noticed me in his friends dorm room...this man is my husband, one time a stranger...then an acquaintance, then a friend, a boyfriend, a fiance, now my hubby...you can't get any better or higher than that, I am already soaring so high in the sky, his love takes me there.

Wow, 9 years! I started my relationship with your mom......somewhere in the early 2000's. Maybe right before you got married, it runs in my mind.

Happy Anniversary sweetie! You are beautiful! (and the Mr is rightly handsome as well!)

hehe thank you colette!

let's see...I was only 19 there (joe was 18) and ALOT THINNER AND TIGHTER! LOL but I used to play in the Kansas State University Symphony Orchestra and played the 2nd violin section, I rocked it out! I was wearing my black dress that I have always worn for concerts (It's required) that dress came with a jacket too, but that was taken in late april so it was warmer...and it gets real hot on stage too! lol I always loved wearing that dress anyway, I think my mom still has it hanging in a closet somewhere in her house...those were the good ol days, 19 was a good year for me...
