11 years ago today T and I were busy with wedding rehearsal events and getting ready for our wedding the following day.
I knew T was "my one" within 15 minutes of our first date and I can remember telling my roommate "I've met my husband," when I got home that night.
I love that God gave us 4 years to figure out how to be a couple before we were parents...He certainly knew we needed it. They were sweet, sweet years and we learned so much and grew up alot.
I can remember our first disagreement as a married couple...it was over the proper storage of ketchup once it was opened....in the pantry or the fridge...a quick call to my parents confirmed what I already knew...the fridge, of course.
We really learned to look toward each other in those years. I learned the solution to a disagreement wasn't, "I'm going home," but that my home was now with T.
When God gave us the gift of a baby, we were both excited and terrified. When that pregnancy resulted in an ectopic pregnancy, which resulted in me coming very close to death because my tube ruptured and I had internal bleeding for days, we faced the first of many obstacles.
Our first days as parents weren't easy... both babies in the NICU + 2 unexperienced parents= lots of tears and a hormonal momma screaming at a nurse who dared to give her baby a bottle when she was trying to breastfeed. Luckily, T loves me despite my quirks and had learned how to deal with them.

The past 11 years have been filled with so many blessings, including struggles that I now consider blessings because we had to trust and depend on each other to get through them.

I remember a friend asking me how the married life was about a year after our wedding and saying, "It's the best thing ever. I didn't know it would be so fun."
After 11 years, I love that I still feel that way.
