Ten Years Down...

Ten years ago today I was sitting in my apartment in Amarillo, TX talking on the phone with a friend (who also has a blog--everyone say hi to Jeff!)

"Are you excited about your date tonight?" he asked.

"Whatever." I blandly replied. "I'm just ready to go out with someone I really like. He seems nice and all, but I don't know."

Four days later, I was in love.

Four and a half months later I was engaged.

A year after that we were married.

Yep, that first date that I was so noncommittal about? Was with Ricky.

We've had a whirlwind ten years (TEN years! That's a looooong time!) We've changed jobs, changed cities, weathered the loss of friends and family members, struggled through infertility and miraculously had a baby.

Not too shabby for a guy I was iffy about ten years ago.

To keep this from turning into a gag-inducing post, let me just say this...

I may have been iffy about you then, Ricky, but I'm not iffy about you now. I love you and can't wait for the next ten years.
