11 Years Ago

posted in family on by

I met Chris in August 1999, the week before school started at Moody at band camp. (yes we are band camp nerds, lol). The first time I saw him I started crushing on him. He was sooooooooo cute/HOT and sweet and funny. I hoped to get to know him better. We hung out a lot for the next few months, hanging with friends, going out for coffee. My crush on him got bigger and bigger.
Nov 20, 1999 we went to the lighting of the lights on Michigan Ave in Chicago. After the parade we walked down to the river to watch the fireworks. It was a cold day and Chris wrapped his arm around my waist. I got goose-bumps. My head was like, “does this mean what I think it means? Does he like me back?”. Every time we would have to split apart because of the crowds he’d come right back and put his arm around me. At the river I decided to take his hand.
We to this day argue about who made the “first move”. I say he did but he says he was just being nice and was trying to keep me warm. LOL. It really doesn’t matter. From then on we were in Love.
In March 2000, Chris proposed to me. And then July 29, 2000 I married the man of my dreams.
He’s an amazing husband. I think I’m spoiled with him. And a wonderful daddy to our beautiful girls. I love I get to spend the rest of my life with him.
HAPPY 11th ANNIVERSARY sweetheart!!!
