(Fall 2008)Mike proposed on New Year's Eve. We were on our way out to celebrate with our friends, he pulled over (I'm thinking 'what did we forget') and started rambling and then finally told me he meant to ask me at the party but couldn't wait one more second. This is how Mike is. When he feels something, he shares it. He never holds back an "I love you" or a "Hey beautiful" if its what he is really thinking. I LOVE this about him.
We were married October 6th, 2001, just months after I my high school graduation. Yes, I was just a baby. I didn't care. Anything in life worth experiencing, I wanted to experience with him right by my side. Still feel the same way, and then some!
We fit. We click. We get each other's odd sense of humor. He knows that I'm not a morning person. I know he needs his coffee before he can think about starting a day. We are still figuring each other out but know each other like the back of our hands. God blessed us with 3 beautiful babies: Izabelle, Logan, Phinehas
We've had lots of ups over the last 9 years and definitely a few downs. I'm thankful for both, even the downs as they make the ups that much better!

Love you, Mike! So thankful everyday that you are mine and I am yours.
