In honor of Valentine's Day

I thought it would be nice to share our story and to post some pictures of Jim and I's years together. I really can't wrap my head around the fact that we have been together 8 years this year, married 5 of those. I am getting old. Ugh I posted a picture of us on our page and his brother said that it was "old school", I think mostly since Jim was in he early twenties when the picture was taken. LOL

We met at Outback Steakhouse in 2002, I was the head waiter and he came over from Tampa as a transfer. Now let me give you a little back story. I have know his family, except him, since 1999 when I started working for Outback, his Dad was my boss' boss so I saw them all the time. I had NO idea they had an older son, Jim was away at college this whole time until he moved back home and transferred to the restaurant. We started out as friends, as cliche as that sounds, until one night we went to a party together. We could not stop looking into each others eyes all night. That was definitely the turning point in our relationship, we stayed up talking till sunrise and had our first kiss as the sun was coming up. We fell in love right after that and have been with each other side by side ever since. We dated for about a year and a half before Jim popped the question. . .

It was Christmas Eve and we were sitting by the fire place opening our presents and drinking wine when he asked me to marry him. It was so romantic and I will never forget how happy I was to say "yes of course I will marry you". We waited until I graduated from college before tying the knot in 2005. We had the best wedding anyone could ask for, it was the biggest party I think any of our family members have been too. People are still talking about how fun our wedding reception was.

Now we are on our fifth year of marriage and I can't believe it has been that long already. My husband is my best friend and soul mate, I am the luckiest girl in the world.

Because of you I dream bigger, reach higher, land softer, feel braver, try harder, live truer and most importantly love deeper. I love you honey Happy Valentine's Day.
