14 years ago today I was 20 years old. I worked as a customer service rep. I was enrolled at IUPUI part time. I was thinner. I was funnier- more light hearted I think. I had super long blonde hair- not the kind that touches your bottom, but long none the less. And I was dating this guy- a really great guy. We'd been going out for 6 months, and I knew that I loved him.
14 years ago tonight, we drove to South Haven, Michigan. And after the sun had set, this guy took my hand and led me out onto the beach and asked me to be his wife. He got down on his knee, and he cried.
I'm still glad that I said yes.
Even though I am surrounded by children who seem to fight and bicker all the time, at TV that is blaring Max and Ruby, and more laundry than it seems humanly possible to catch up- I am still glad that I said yes- and that 14 years ago he chose to do this whole thing with me.
