Today is my anniversary. 8 years ago today I was walking down the "isle" in my backyard to marry the man I had already spent 7 years with. We finally made it official. My high school sweetheart. The one that gives me strength time and time again.
Here's a little bit about how we met.

We spent two hard years away from each other for a good portion of the time while I finished high school. Then we went to college together. That was harder than the two years apart, but we made it. I'm glad we made the choice to stick it out. We never once split. We made the choice to fight like we always will.
We got married, got jobs, worked our asses off, saved more money than I think we will probably ever have again, lived in a spider hole, got pregnant, built a house, got pregnant, lost a baby, got pregnant, lived life, and got pregnant again. It's been quite a ride. Ups, downs. Deaths, births. Happiness, sadness. All along joy and God.
Below are pictures from our wedding. Most of my pictures along with my dress were lost in a fire. So, the ones I do have are pretty treasured.
I think this is my favorite picture of all time. I loved that dress and I loved that bouquet.
Awe, the memories! Happy Anniversary, babe!
Here's to keeping up the fight!
