It's been 8 years....

Its crazy to think that I'm 23 years old and I've been with my significant other for EIGHT years!

We met in a very unconventional way when I was 15 and he was 18. Now obviously as teenagers, you don't expect a relationship to last long term, and Chris and I even talked about how we weren't looking for anything serious, but it only took two weeks for us to fall in love with each other and the rest is history!

We've had ups and downs along the way, like every relationship does, but we've always pulled through stronger than before!

I wish there were more pictures of us from when we first started dating, but in 2004, not just everyone had digital cameras and when he bought me a cellphone I thought I was so lucky! LOL

The following pictures are a small glimpse in the last eight years of our lives, and I couldn't imagine being with anyone else. I feel like my purpose in life is to be the mother of HIS children, and I'm lucky he's blessed me with three little girls who I wouldn't trade for the world! He works hard to provide for our family and I'm so blessed to have him in my life.

Happy anniversary.. Eight years is an impressive effort!
It's funny how when you are lookin for a serious relationship it never happens but when you think you'll just date casually- you find 'the one'

This is so sweet! I agree with Kate. It seems like love has its own plans and you don't find it, it finds you.
