Ten

Ten years ago today, I walked into a bar called Duvic's in Baton Rouge and met my husband all over again. And, although we had not spoken....when he saw me, he leaned over to his friend and said, "Good. My wife is here."

We've known each other since the 6th grade....and were friends in high school....later realizing we both had crushes on each other throughout the years....and finally reconnected while he was in town for a wedding while I lived in Louisiana.

I searched through our photo albums and found a few memorable photos...

Fourth of July.....on our way to Luchenbach, Texas for Willie's Festival.....1999.

Our wedding on the beach......Half Moon Bay, California.....2000.

Another wedding pic....

First Anniversary at Sardine's in Fort Worth, TX......2001.

Widespread Panic....Dallas, TX.....2002.

San Diego......2003.

Pat O'Brien's for the LSU National Championship.....New Orleans, Louisiana.....2004.

Oahu, Hawaii......2004.

Park City, Utah.....2005.

My brother, Cody's, return from Iraq.....Houston, Texas.....2005.

State Fair of Texas.....2005.

Akumal, Mexico.....Tulum.....2005.

Comedy Club.....Sundance Square in Fort Worth......2006.

Cozumel....2006.

Keystone, Colorado.....2007.

Cabo San Lucas.....2007.

Breckenridge....2007.

Puerto Rico.....2008.

Red Rocks Amphitheatre......2008.

Aspen Jazz Festival.....2008.

In those 10 years, we have.......fallen in love....said our vows....lived in 6 cities...built a house...bought a house...sold 2 houses...had 3 children...lost family members...lost a job...been promoted...traveled...argued until we cried...laughed until we cried.....here's to the next 10, babe.

You're stuck with me.
