9 Years

9 years ago today I met a crazy boy from North Carolina who would change my life forever.  Here we are, sunburned and nervous on our first date.  If you'd asked me then if I thought we'd get married one day, I probably wouldn't have said no.  There was something strangely familiar about him even from the first moment. In the past 9 years, we've become adults, overcome 3 years of a long distance relationship, and managed to make a real life together in California.  Even though technically our "real" anniversary started when we got married, I think it's special to remember how far we've come and how long we've been in each others' lives.
