Ten years ago a shy, somewhat awkward seventeen year old boy asked a giggly, nervous sixteen year old girl if she wanted to “go out sometime”. The giggly, nervous girl giggled nervously and squeaked out a “Yes!”.
The rest, as they say, is history.
Two high school graduations, two high school banquets, college, two college graduations, an engagement, a wedding, a masters degree, six jobs, two apartments, two houses, three cities, and a baby on the way later, here we are. Ten years older, ten years wiser.
At the time, I had no idea it would ever last. I couldn’t have even imagined what ten years would bring. But boy has it been great!
Part of me feels like those ten years have gone by in the blink of an eye, and yet another part of me feels like we’ve been together our whole lives (which is true in part since we’ve known each other since ages two and three, but not exactly in the boyfriend-girlfriend way).
In honor of our 10th anniversary as a couple, I hope you’ll pardon the ridiculous amount of old and somewhat mushy pictures I’m about to post.

I love you babe! It’s been a fantastic ten years…can’t wait to see what the next ten bring!
