19 years ago today

It's official, Jason and I have been together for 19 years, wow, I'm 36 so that seems like a really long time for someone my age.

We actually met when I was 16, I was dating a friend of his and I actually hung out with his girlfriend on occasion.

Then we met again a year later because he was dating my best friend(totally not compatible) that didn't last long. Here is the kicker at that time I started dating his best friend, I didn't know it at the time but then the 4 of us started hanging out.

I was still in school and I worked afternoons and he was 19 and worked full time day shift. Our friends worked nights so we just started hanging out together. We became the best of friends, the other dating came to a halt.

One night we were at a party and he was in the kitchen talking to some guys, I walked in and kissed him and the rest is history.

If you know what you want go for it, I did :)

Jason is still my very best friend, we have an awesome marriage, we have grown up together, well he hasn't actually grown up :)

We have grown together, not apart, 19 years and growing strong!

The picture is at his cousin's wedding just a few months after we started dating.

How sweet! It's much like our story, we've been together since July 1, 1985, and will celebrate 20 years of marriage next month. It's a blessing to be married to your best friend, isn't it?
