It grows stronger each day

Mitch and I met in early March 1999 in a hallway at seminary. We were engaged three months later in early June and married four months later in mid-October that same year. So, we knew each other almost 8 months when we took our vows (give or take a few days/weeks - the math is not worth figuring right now. It's 2:49 a.m. as I type). We never felt any hesitation during this short and fast time. We were both students in grad school and were very busy with our studies and jobs, but we knew the Father was leading us toward marriage so we wasted no time in preparing to make that happen.

We enjoy the fun aspect of country music but we also appreciate the talent in Nashville as well as the sense of family that country music portrays. I'll admit that the local country station isn't the first programmed button on my car radio setting but it's definitely within the top five. I sat with Mitch on the couch tonight and we watched the CMA Music Festival
together. Soon, it was Brad Paisley's turn to sing his #1 hit, "Then". Watch out...I'm about to get cheesy, romantic, and mushy - As I listened, I started tearing up and then looked over at my husband. We smiled at each other and knew what the other was thinking. Our love for one another today is stronger than it was ten years ago when we married - and that's a huge statement because I was madly, deeply, crazily in love with him then.

For me, loving Mitch gets better, deeper, stronger, easier every day.

You are my bestest buddy, Babe.
I'm sorry I don't tell you that enough. I STILL CAN'T BELIEVE THAT WE HAVE BABIES TOGETHER!
